A retired vet in Austin, TX is walking by a house, sees what he believes to be a guy dangling from the roof, tries to go over and help.

You gotta watch the doorbell video cam footage of this guy’s completely earnest attempts to help get this supposed person down. The guy’s out in the street yelling for help, even calls 911. Turns out it’s a Family Vacation-themed Christmas display and the “person” dangling from the roof is a Clark Griswold dummy.

Which got us thinking… What’s a time when you’ve tried to intervene in a situation with nothing but good intentions only to discover you’ve completely misinterpreted what’s happening? Call us at 866-893-5722.
