If you’re wondering, that’s a Christmas tree being tossed out the window. It’s in mid-fall (not the season) but it won’t get to complete it since it got caught in the naked branches of a bigger, stronger tree. We all love having a Christmas tree up during the Holiday season, but getting rid of it can be a hassle.
If it’s artificial, you have to get all the ornaments off and box it up for next year. If it’s a real tree, you have to haul it out to the garbage pickup location, dropping needles the whole way there. But you still can’t do what this person did and haul it out the window into the yard fifty feet below. Take it to the dumpster like a good neighbor.
Reaching for the Stars
We admit we aren’t exactly sure what’s going on here. A woman has taken a step stool out into the driveway to... well, that’s the question, isn’t it? Is she trying to get some spiderwebs down? Is she holding a mirror and trying to signal the nearby hill where the kids play? Maybe she’s a budding photographer, and she’s working on adding a downward angle to her shots to make them a little more dynamic.
If this was a video, we’d be able to figure it out better, but a static image leaves us fully perplexed. Perhaps she just wanted to feel, in the most minor way possible, a little closer to the edge of the atmosphere. The stars seem so close at night; maybe she just wanted a better look.
You Knob Head
We’re not going to go around saying that construction is the easiest job in the world (that would be acting), but we feel like even the rank amateur could have figured out a better way to get this job done. As you can clearly see, the opening for the doorknob is on the inside of the door, where the hinges are, and that makes it, at the very least, a difficult door to open. Or keep shut.
The fact that someone went through all that work to get the door up on the hinges without noticing that the hole for the knob was on the wrong end. Now they either have to take it off and put it up the proper way, or figure out some way to cut out a perfect hole and plug the other side. It could be done, but it won’t be easy.
An Analogy for Poor Decisions
First off, the floor looks great. Hard to beat a nice, dark varnish when it comes to making a wood floor look like it’s brand new. On the other hand, this lady has literally painted herself into a corner. Well, all right, she’s not in a corner of the room, but it’s essentially what she’s done. Maybe she knew what she was doing and painted one side the week before in order to give herself an out, but from where we’re standing, she’s going to be stuck there.
Did the person taking the picture warn her of what she was doing? It doesn’t really seem like it, since the lady is just going on with her work without seemingly a single care in the world. In fact, she’s probably happy that she’s almost done!
Hope You Have Some Scissors at Hand
Safety first, people. This guy has quite the embarrassed look on his face, but we think he’s probably happy things didn’t end up any worse than they actually did. If you get something stuck in a piece of machinery, you could be sunk in a hurry. While the poor guy has to look like he’s trying out a new style of beard until he’s able to get home and grab his razor, at least he only lost some hair.
He might have also lost a pair of earbuds, but those are easy enough to replace. Getting a new face after an accident is a lot harder and more expensive. Maybe next time, you’ll keep that beard tamed before taking on a job with that kind of equipment.
