One hungry crane operator put a new twist on the concept of lunch delivery at a construction site in Nanning, China Oct 13.

A man delivering the worker's takeout arrived on the construction site ready to hand off the order, but when he called the worker to tell him the food had arrived, he was surprised to learn that his customer was in a crane, Shanghaiist reported.

Instead of coming down to retrieve the bag, the crane operator lowered the hook and had the delivery man attach the bag of food. He then raised the hook up and had his food safely in the crane's cab within two minutes. The worker said later that he used this technique often, as it saves him time and effort, Shanghaiist reported.
