While looking through my bookshelf this weekend for something fun to read, I came across a book by an Ideo employee called Thoughtless Acts. It's full of photographs of all the interesting ways people adapt the world around them to meet their needs.
While looking through the book, I was reminded of my father on garbage day. I know that's a strange association - but he has a really funny way of bringing the garbage can back up the driveway after it's been emptied.
So, for your enjoyment (and my father's embarrassment) I taped his solution. Take a look:
And, for those of you who are concerned, I did tell my father I would be posting this on my blog! I didn't give him much of a choice though... ;-)
Oh, and he doesn't drive down the driveway just to get the garbage can. This is how he retrieves it when he's coming home from someplace already!
