Recently though, there are elements of his 'helpfulness' that are actually helpful! In the last few days, he's learnt to pull the dry socks & jocks off multi-peg-hanger that hangs off the clothes line and put them in the basket. Keeps him busy while I bring the other things in, and it's a whole category of clothing that I don't have to do myself anymore!
There are some slight issues when he 'helpfully' pulls off the wet things as I'm putting them out, but we're working on that :)
Long live helpfulness!
