"We will approach them and say that the bus is coming later and invite them in for a coffee," said Richard Neureither, Benrath’s director. "Five minutes later they have completely forgotten they wanted to leave."This would totally work on me if husband installed a giant TJ Max shuttle bus sign outside our door. I would intend to go out and frivolously spend money on groceries and socks. (Or carpet - shut up!) Then become stalled by the TJ Maxx sign. Husband could then lure me back inside with a cold Diet Dr. Pepper.
I love this piece I found on Neatorama. Apparently, a nursing home got tired of having to fetch runaway Alzheimer's patients so the installed a fake bus stop outside their doors.
