My wife fell off a 6í ladder
We were cleaning the patio after a couple of weeks of me building a cabinet and she was up on the ladder trimming the Wisteria. Suddenly I heard a scream and saw her fall into the rock garden after bouncing off a 2í block wall. I thought OMG of all the ladder safety training Iíve been through at work lately maybe I should have been on the ladder.
When I went to her aid hoping she didnít have any broken bones, I discovered that she got stung by a wasp and never even got hurt falling of the ladder. I canít wait to tell the guys at work that falling off a 6í ladder isnít that bad. But they probably would milk it for workers comp for a couple of months.
Iím a die hard DIY guy. Donít tell me to hire someone for what I can do myself.
