Have You Seen This? UK dad gets creative to keep cool

Posted June 22

THE UK — In case you haven’t been outside or read the news, a serious heat wave is impacting the globe.

In the United Kingdom, the temperatures broke records as thermometers hit record numbers today, reaching 94 F and engulfing British citizens in the warmest June day since 1976, according to the BBC.

One British dad got a little creative in order to deal with the sweltering heat, much to his wife’s bewilderment.

In a video posted by LadBaby Official on YouTube (yes, the same dad who came up with a creative lunchbox for his son) responded to his wife’s request for a small pool for their little one by renting a skip (British word for dumpster) and filling it with icy cool water to get a little relief.

Complete with lining, slide and ladder, dad floats in a pink inner tube when his wife comes home, expecting a “paddling pool” (kiddie pool) and getting a whole different experience.

“What have you done?” mom said when she arrived in the driveway. “This is a bit far, is it?”

It’s innovative, silly and just the right amount of obnoxious that teeters between really upsetting your partner and making them laugh. Luckily, mom has the right spirit about the whole ordeal, even if she’s done the right thing by refusing to help empty it.
