St Louis College Friends Use Rental Scooters to Move Couch

On moving out of his Washington University dorm, in St Louis, Missouri, Matt Cortigiani sold his couch to his friend Alex Wheels. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to find a truck to borrow for the delivery. That’s when the pair got creative. Responding to a Facebook video of their endeavors, Cortigiani said he and Wheels decided to use two Lime scooters to transport the couch to Wheels’s place. “We took turns as one person sat on the edge of the couch to steer the scooters while the other lifted the back edge off the ground.” The epic, two-mile journey took the enterprising pair two hours, Cortigiani wrote. He was glad they “could make so many people smile along the way!” One of those was Ivana Bosnjak, whose Facebook video went viral. “You guys made my weekend, I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I’ve laughed so hard,” she told Cortigiani on Facebook.
