Its not funny. I blew out the side of my left thumb working on the pickup. The DW has no sympathy. This breaks my heart. I'm disabled now.....

How do you guys get a break?

This is bad. It was all bloody this morning. I could get tetanus regardless of previous shots. I redressed it this afternoon and it has quit leaking. I may be safe for now.

The DW has had absolutely no sympathy. Dang, it was her pickup.

Sorry you were injured. It a little fuzzy but it looks like you got somebody there in the background to give you some sympathy (that is a little pug ain't it?)

I'm changing out rear leaf springs. I dunno, it just happened. The pug is sympathetic. But he's a guy.

Not sure what this guy was up to. Looks like he was asking for it.

It appears he was trying to demonstrate ladder safety. If a ladder is properly set up you should be able to lean all the way back and all the way to each side without the ladder moving. I think he demontrated more how not to do it than how to do it properly 馃憦

Either way, I think we all learned something...and got a good laugh in the process. 馃榿

Neither of the first two guys bothered to clear the leaves off their deck before setting up the ladder.
It doesn't matter how grippy the feet are on the ladder; if what they are on can slide, the ladder can slide.

Its not so bad but the timing is for sure. Suspension work of an older rig is such a PITB. For sure you'll end up with some skin missing somewhere.

What were you doing that she told you not to?

Usually the only time I'm unsympathetic ;)
