Taking out the trash is one of the easiest household chores there is. Or is it?

Witness this poor gentleman in the Netherlands slip and slide along the ice-covered ground while he tries to put out his garbage. The phrase "so close yet so far away" certainly comes to mind.

Let's hope for his sake there wasn't a pair of ice skates in that garbage can because it certainly would've come in handy.

Kudos to him for sticking (or sliding) to it and eventually getting the bag in the bin. Taking out the trash shouldn't normally be the biggest accomplishment in your day, but we're going to give this guy a pass in this instance.
