A 29-year-old water delivery man in Xi’an, already bored with the monotony of his daily haul after one month of working, began dressing up as Superman to promote speedy delivery and to surprise thirsty customers, according to Huashang Daily. Like a genuine Patch Adams of the water delivery industry.
The worker, Zhu Fusheng, said that he was initially uncomfortable with the outfit but eventually grew used to the stares as he sped across the city, bottled water in arm and cape trailing behind him. He said that wearing the suit kept him “passionate” about water delivery.
A gentle reminder that small joys can be found in even the most soul-crushing of jobs (unless you work in Pudong).
