A Chicago man's unusual method of calling "dibs" on a parking space is gaining attention on social media after he perfected a method of freezing his pants so they stand on their own.
Adam Selzer of West Ridge posted photos to Twitter showing him reserving a shoveled-out parking space using pairs of frozen pants that he shaped to stand up on their own.Reserving parking spacesis common in Chicago, with residents often using lawn chairs of traffic cones to mark the spots they shoveled.
"Polar vortex fun: pants with nobody inside them! Soak a pair, put outside. In about 20 minutes you can form them to shape, and in another 20 they're solid," Seltzer wrote in aTwitter postthat has since gone viral.
Seltzer said he is now working on a method to complete the ensemble.
"The one thing I tried this time that I haven't before is I also froze a couple of shirts, so we'll see if this works," hetold CBS Chicago.
While in lockdown, we're all unable to get our hair done, so many have been taking matters into their own hands - but it hasn't been ending well.
A woman who recently dyed her own hair decided not to rinse the color out in her shower.
Instead of messing up her porcelain bathroom, the mum had her son take her to their local car wash, so she could sort out the mess there.
In a video posted to theTikTokaccount@theonlykeef,viewers first see the woman, with the dye on her hair and the color staining her hands, face and white t-shirt.
She holds up a box ofhairdye, saying: "I wanted to look like Midnight Ruby."
Her son then proceeds to drive her to the car wash, where her other son meets them so they can block her in with their cars.
"We need him to block the other side of the car wash... I don't want anyone to see me," the parent explains.
Once he arrives, the parent gets out of the car, wearing a plastic bin bag over her clothing.
Between the group, they use one of the pressure washers to rinse the red out of the mom's hair and then attempt to dry it as well.
"I'm so cold. I have many regrets," the woman says as she gets back in the car.
"Let's get out of here before anybody starts asking questions," her son replies.
The video wentviralon TikTok, being watched more than seven million times and garnering over 996,000 likes.
