Do you know anyone who goes as hard as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson?
The Rock decided not to let a malfunctioning gate get in the way of his commute. Though he could have easily had a technician on site shortly in order to get the front gate of his Georgia mansion working again, he decided to take matters into his own hands, literally.
In order to be on time for shooting DC Comics' Black Adam, The Rock quite literally removed the gate from its hinges.
"We experienced a power outage due to severe storms, causing my front gate not to open. I tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works when power goes out - but this time it wouldn't."

"Made some calls to see how fast I can get the gate tech on site, but I didn't have 45min to wait. By this time, I know I have hundreds of production crew members waiting for me to come to work so we can start our day."
"So I did what I had to do."
"I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Tore it out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass."
The Rock is insane. #ripgates https://t.co/GBsNqhT1XU— zodiac bully kya ✨ (@zodiac bully kya ✨)1600528705.0

When the technicians arrived, they reportedly could not believe their eyes:
"My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, 'in disbelief and equally scared.' Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work."

So, The Rock made it on time for work, and says he thinks he's ready to be Black Adam.
Next time you're late for work, consider physically dismantling a major piece of machinery in order to make it on time.
