The origins of the following video are unknown, for now, and its context is just as much a mystery. In this short clip, a group of elementary-aged kids (some wearing what looks like a school uniform) stand behind a fence while a neon vest-wearing construction worker is *checks notes* shoveling a pile of dirt.
You'd think this was basic landscaping procedure, but boy, oh boy, did these kids see something special. Every time said construction worker moves over another shovel-ful of dirt, these kiddos go up in arms, cheering him on with a vigor that's usually reserved for opening birthday presents or going to Disney World.
I'm chalking it up to just kids being kids, absolutely enthralled with this honest man doing an honest day's work. But someone commented on the video musing about just how much more productive we'd be if we all had a little squadron of children cheering on our every move, and it got me thinking.
Here's a list of very mundane things that would feel so much more impressive if these kids' congratulatory exclamations were always playing in the backs of our heads.
