Sometimes we get so used to everyday life, it becomes hard to imagine that things can be different. But they can. Whether it's out car getting scratched in the parking lot or our poop splashing in a public toilet so loud, everyone knows what we're doing, if there's a problem, there's a solution. Bored Panda has collected a list of genius ideas that have the potential to make some our day-to-day struggles go away, and while you in particular might not benefit from all of them, you'll still probably appreciate the effort that went into making them a reality.

The number is rather clever as well. The way it's written, it's a visual mnemonic device, meaning it helps the human memory to remember it. 888-3737-888 - with the differing numbers in red. Useful for someone who's in a hurry and can't write it down.

A Sign In The Women’s Bathroom For Those Who Feel Unsafe On A Date

'Ask For Angela' is a relatively new campaign designed to reduce sexual abuse on nights out. It originated in a pub in Lincolnshire, England, in 2016 and since then, it has received worldwide attention and has been adopted by bars and clubs across the globe.

My Local Vet Has A Sign And Candle For When Someone's Pet Is Dying

My Local Vet Has A Sign And Candle For When Someone's Pet Is Dying

As heartbreaking as it is to say goodbye to your pet, it's what most of them need during their final moments. "I beg you DO NOT LEAVE THEM,” a message shared by Hillcrest Veterinary Clinic in South Africa read. "Do not make them transition from life to death in a room full of strangers in a place they don’t like. The thing you people need to know that most of you don’t is that they search for you when you leave them behind. They search every face in the room for their loved person. They don’t understand why you left them when they are sick, scared, old, or dying from cancer and they need your comfort.”

There is a bench outside my vet on the grass - no one ever sits there unless they are crying. I call it the "Crying Bench". Sat there myself. It's so sad to see someone else going through that...

I had a vet once (no more because of this) that made me wait in the very public waiting room while they de-wormed a walk-in. I had an appointment. I was barely holding it together and they took a walk-in and de-wormed it. Then, when I came out after the walk-in was still there. I heard them ask what was going on and the receptionist told them 'She just put her pet down. Though, it was just a cat so I don't know what the hysterics are about'. All three stared at me while I carried my now empty carrier out to my car. I'll never go back to that vet.

Once had to have a dog, my darling, put to sleep. Cancer, pain. I left, crying quietly but obviously upset with my dear dkg's collar and lead in my hand. I wanted to keep these mementos. I had to leave via the same waiting room I entered. Same people with their pets saw me go in and then come back, petless. Awful for me, and them. Years later, I had to do the same again. Went in through the waiting room. My lovely love.y dog was put to sleep, cancer again. I did not cry until she was dead, then I cried. I left via a back door in the vet's , with her collar, and did not upset anyone in the waiting room. They did not see my heartbreak either. My upset was private, and my grief did not upset all the pet lovers there. All it needed was another door. Entrance and exit.

When we had to let go the mom of our other two cats I was devistated. I don’t remember crying that hard over a human! Luckily there weren’t any other people because we scheduled it and being a smaller off shot of the main office it’s not busy. We’ve been going there for years so everyone knows us. The lovely lady that works the desk went into the back and brought out the cutest 3 legged kitten to cheer me up so I could compose myself. That little girl was still there for rehab until they could find a forever home. That cutie jumping and running and being so happy even after having a leg amputated (due to a neglectful person). It’s hard to cry when you see that kind of joy! Find a good vet and stick with them!

We've had to put several pets down, and we've always been treated so kindly by everyone at the vet's office, and when I go still sobbing through the waiting room, by the other customers. I've received kind words from unexpected people.. And we've received after each pet; it seems to be a custom at \vets' offices now, and I appreciate it.

The vet where I took my 18 year old Nore to be put to sleep when he was ready had a box with fairy lights in it, with the same thing. When we were leaving without my boy, and I saw they had the lights on for him, I about lost it right in the waiting room. Still brings tears to my eyes, a year later. So very compassionate, and also a wonderful memorial. It was like the whole office was lighting a candle for the passing of a Very Good Boy.

I went to a vet that had one of these when we had to put a pet rat to sleep. They didn't light it for us. I'm hoping they just forgot, but part of me can't help but think that a lot of people still don't value pets that aren't cats and dogs as much.

I am sure that they forgot. Loss of a pet is not related to size and every life is valued. I have just spent a small fortune on my bird due to illness, and would do so again, because size does not matter.

When I had to take my dog in October my dad and I couldn’t even go into the vets, my sister had to take her in. The vets are brilliant as is my sister.

These Lines Go Up The Wall So You Can Park Perfectly In-Between The Lines

Everyone wants to drive until it's time to park in a cramped corner. This particular one was found in Seattle, under the Amazon Go store. And even though the driver on the left didn't back backwards, it actually has a lot of benefits. Most importantly, reversing into a parking space gives you greater control and makes it easier to manoeuvre out the space. Avoiding reverse parking usually leads into much more difficult situations, trying to wiggle your car out of a tight space when you parked front-first.

This Toilet Flushes By Using Your Foot

This Toilet Flushes By Using Your Foot

This mechanism is located in a toilet in Mexico and you don't have to be a germaphobe to appreciate it. Unsanitary public toilets can lead to gut infections, lung and skin infections as well as STDs. If a stool doesn't look clean but you really need to use it, consider using tissue paper to open its door, using the toilet seat cover, and if there isn’t one, cleaning the toilet seat with a tissue paper before using it or even hovering closely above the toilet.

My Grocery Store Started Selling Overripe, Discount Bananas With A Recipe For Banana Bread On The Bag

This solution comes at a time when it's needed the most. Americans waste 150,000 tons of food each day – equal to a pound per person. Also, fruit and vegetables were the most likely to be thrown out, followed by dairy and then meat.

By the way, interestingly enough, banana bread is actually a somewhat young dish. It first became a standard feature of American cookbooks with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930s.

Supermarket Trolleys In Sweden Have A Map Of The Supermarket

Supermarket Trolleys In Sweden Have A Map Of The Supermarket

It's about time we got something like this. Rick Paulas of the Pacific Standard has compared the current design of many grocery stores to casinos. "There are lights and sounds that re-focus attention every micro-second, carpet on the ground to offer cushion for our feet, an open-flow space from the slot machines to the poker tables to the roulette. But what's more important is what's not there: clocks on the wall, bathrooms, escape routes. The reason is obvious — can't spend money if you're not present—and they point toward why supermarkets attempted to get their customers lost."

If a 25 years old man is caught building lego instead of walking on it, what is the punishment? Asking for a friend.
