Did you know that a few years ago in some areas of GB there was a sudden rise in incidences of older people, mainly women, arriving at a&e with broken wrists?

 

It transpired that it coincided with the introduction of wheelie bins and they had been trying to clean the inside while standing on something, slipped and ended up with broken bones.

 

Humans hey, don't you love them?
