Geoffrey had knots. Chronic knots. Like most of us, his earbuds were constantly tangling up in his pocket, so when he stumbled upon the perfect solution via an Apartment Therapy blog post, he was thrilled. The only problem? The solution involved tying more knots. Lots of them. You see, that Apartment Therapy post told how Ada, a crafty Pinterest Pinner, whipped her own earbuds into shape by tying a Chinese Staircase friendship bracelet around them. The design, made out of embroidery floss, called to mind long afternoon bus rides and gave her buds enough heft to stay unknotted for life. Understandably, Geoffrey bemoaned the time commitment and irony of tying lots of little knots to solve his chronic knot problem. That’s where TaskRabbit Natalie came in. Geoffrey posted a Task, provided the headphones and a link to the Apartment Therapy post, and Natalie took the “Y” out of DIY for him.
