From the ‘if you want something DONE, do it yourself’ file…

Fed up by an enormous pothole in his Los Angeles neighborhood, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger picked up a shovel and filled it himself.

The actor and former California governor tweeted a video (earlier in the week) of him and a helper using packaged concrete to repair the road in the Brentwood area of LA.

“Today, after the whole neighborhood has been upset about this giant pothole that’s been screwing up cars and bicycles for weeks, (we) fixed it,” he wrote on Twitter. “I always say, let’s not complain, let’s do something about it.”

*A neighbor rolled down her ca window and shouted her thanks at the action movie star. “You’re welcome,” said Schwarzenegger, decked out in work boots, a leather jacket and shades reminiscent of his role in “Terminator.”
