Arnold Schwarzenegger fills pothole on his street himself after being sick of waiting for it to be fixed
| Last updated
Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken matters into his own hands after being fed up with inaction.
If there's a pothole on your regular commute, you wouldn't be alone in cursing to the road gods for it not being fixed faster.
You can hope and pray; hell you can even complain to your local council, but sometimes the problem never gets resolved.
But Arnie has showed everyone that sometimes you just have to do it yourself.
He's posted a video of him filling in one nasty piece of work that was wreaking havoc on the local community:
The 75-year-old former Governor of California wrote on Twitter: "Today, after the whole neighborhood has been upset about this giant pothole that’s been screwing up cars and bicycles for weeks, I went out with my team and fixed it.
"I always say, let’s not complain, let’s do something about it. Here you go."
To be honest, that's some pretty good advice.
One user said: "Love to see it, former Gov. out fixing potholes."
Another added: "Absolutely love this! This hits home, just do it and take care of it.
A third wrote: "Love this! Taking action in your community!!"
But then it sparked loads of amazing catchphrases or terms based off the 75-year-old's Hollywood career.
He was called the Tarminator by one fan and another said: "Come with me if you want to pave.”
While this certainly showed how you can fix the issue of a pothole yourself, there have been other road warriors who have done quirky things to get council's attention to fix the problem.
One bloke teamed up with Pot Noodle and filled the potholes in his area with the delicious two-minute snack.
Mark Morell, who is aptly dubbed dubbed Mr Pothole on social media, hoped the weird stunt would catch the eyes of council workers and would get them to the site ASAP.
Morrell said (via the Metro): "Potholes drive road users potty and me more than most.
"The pothole crisis across the UK is an increasingly serious issue and something I have been campaigning on for more than 10 years.
"During this period I have had to use my noodle with stunts to highlight just how bad potholes are, from floating plastic ducks in water filled potholes, birthday cakes, fishing rods and model submarines."
