Nicole’s Thoughtless Acts & Creative Misuse

with 4 comments

Thoughtless Acts

A table, or not a table? That is the question!

You’re walking home one night and you need to stop to do up your jacket because it’s cold outside. One problem – your hands are full – uh oh! Good thing there is a conveniently placed flat surface for your drinks! Except this is not really supposed to be used as a drink holder, but when you’re faced with a dilemma, people will adapt to their surroundings to fix the issue. Just don’t forget your drink here! Something like this is constantly seen wherever their is a flat surface – a windowsill, mailbox, garbage can, etc.


Sitting area, or convenient storage?

Running out of storage space? No worries! Just use a spare chair and place some things on it. It’s easy, and convenient. Something like this tends to be common, especially in residence rooms because a lot of people bring up their own chairs, so they need somewhere to put the chair that was provided for them. If it’s there, you might as well use it so it’s not just taking up space.





Creative Misuse

No, you can’t put your drinks and garbage on here

This parking meter has a diagonal top to it, preventing people from putting their drinks and garbage on it (like they did in the first picture). Something like this can also be seen all over, with windowsills being diagonal, or having a mini fence in front of it.

  2. I am terrible for throwing my clothes on my chair and then when I need my chair I always transport it to my bed and then vice versa. I guess because it is a flat surface that it makes it a perfect spot to place everything.

    It amazes me how people can place garbage anywhere.. Thoughtless acts to the environment :/
