I love passing on these dumb ideas. They make my own ideas seem more valuable. This one must be rated as a classic dumb idea....one of the best ever.
In Florida, homes seldom have cellars. People need extra room to store stuff like furniture, tools, machinery and junk. We use a small self-storage facility for hoarding boxes, shipping materials and inventory of my unsold clever ideas. Okay, you can call it junk!
So this is another tenant story...another dumb ass idea...of a tenant at the storage facility. Remember the kayak that fell from the ceiling? This story is even better - or worse - depending on your view.
Apparently, one tenant has trouble remembering the combination of their locked storage unit. So- they developed an ingenious solution. They simply painted the respective numbers needed to open their tumbler combiation lock. Simple! Align the painted numbers..and the lock opens!
Look closely at the padlock...another secret number is ready to revolve into position with the other colored figures.
