Ladder Day Saint

My dad sent me this email today:

Mom called me over to the house to keep an eye on a couple of chandelier installers while she stepped out. So I go over there and find this scenario. A guy over 20 ft off the floor, standing on the TOP step of a big step ladder, ladder supported by 2 wooden planks which were supported by two metal horses, the whole house of cards being held steady by a big guy with lot of hair.

Just after this picture was taken, the guy on the ladder gets a cell phone call from a customer, digs it out of his pocket and and stands there calmly talking on the phone like he's relaxing in a hot tub.

Later the guy tells me that nothing bothers him since he had a job training chimpanzees and other primates for Hollywood movies, which he found stressful.

...They did a great job installing two light fixtures but it made me very uncomfortable watching it.

That is really cool. It's like hiring circus performers to do ordinary household jobs!

That's not cool!

Safety is cool!
