And you thought YOU were having a bad day…

Or, “How to destroy R1,5m’s alcohol in 5 seconds” (about $171,000):

It’s not many workers who can say they destroyed an entire warehouse full of alcohol in just a few seconds.

Yet that is just what this poor forklift driver in Russia did in a video that emerged on the internet on Friday.

The video, which appears to be taken from a CCTV camera in the roof of the warehouse, shows the forklift driver backing up just a little bit too quickly.

He strikes a stack of boxes containing bottle of cognac and vodka – and the impact, to the horror of those standing by, brings the entire contents of the warehouse crashing down in a freak domino effect.

Workmen are pictured frantically clambering over the rubble to reach the two forklift drivers who appear to have been buried under the thousands of bottles.

Fortunately no one was seriously injured, with one driver suffering a wound to his foot, and the other apparently escaping unscathed.

Five million roubles (£105 000) worth of alcohol was destroyed in the accident, according to the Russian website that posted the video, scandalim.ru.

It is not clear if the driver had been sampling some of the stored wares when the incident occurred.

I suddenly feel very optimistic.
