Where there is a living to be made there is ingenuity. Some street vendors in Indonesia have figured out a way to sell their goods to customers at the Jakarta Convention Center by using nothing other than ladders. These merchants typically don’t have the cash to rent a booth inside the center, but they’ve found a cleaver loophole around this minor technicality. That’s right, they stand on their ladders on the other side of the convention center’s wall near the main entrance and enact their business transactions from above.
