Sometimes I leave my clothes for too long in the dryer. It is weakness of will. To combat this problem, I will turn on the light in the cellar, right next to the dryer. I then later know I must go downstairs to turn the light off (can't contribute any more to global warming!), and while I am downstairs I will bring up the clothes from the dryer.
I can't even imagine how to write down a utility function for such an idiot.
