Description
Technique to pick something up that was dropped on the floor:
A technique the user uses if he drops something like a driving licence on the floor and cannot pick it up (or something with the same shape that he cannot grasp). The user places an ordinary playing card in his hand (inserts it between two fingers) and uses the card to push the driving license against a fixed object, such as a table leg. Then he slides the playing card under the driving license, gets a grip on it and picks it up together with the playing card.
