so.. my flatmate has a friend staying here for a month as a "butler" (read: personal assistant), strange, I know..
I've had him do a few physical things:
- get rid of some hard-drives, including wiping them and properly disposing of them
- dispose of a mercury-containing bulb
- change the address on my driver's license (not super physical except that I was able to hand him my license)
I plan to have him take some clothes to good will and mail away some books that I've borrowed
I have also benefited from him cleaning and taking out the trash and keeping the dishes washed and clearing out old food from the fridge..
verdict: pretty amazing. physicality helps a lot.
