To old fer this chit!
Well taday perty much just sucked! Let me bore ya with the details.
1st, snowin, sucks, drivin an hour ta the job in the snow, sucks.
2nd, get ta the job, can't get up the drive, hitch hits, trucks slidin sideways towards the ditch an a culvert, gotta park in the road an drag everthin 3 times as far.
3rd, put the step out on the truck, step on it an it breaks. This sucks, now were usin a ladder.
4th, did I mention it's snowin?
5th, workin on a second story roof off a ladder, partner put up the ladder (ain't doin that again), ladder starts slidin off the ice an snow covered edge a the roof, I lean left an get it slowed down, ladder hooks a rain gutter, stops, ok, maybe we can get outa this yet.
6th, nope, ladder slides again, now I'm hangin off the side a the ladder, ladder an me starts toward earth, bounce off the second roof, ridin the ladder all the way down, lookin fer a place ta land.
7th, concrete steps dead ahead, shift my wieght an land on the ground. Ok, this is gonna hurt. Layin there in the snow, jacket hood over my face, still breathin.
8th, ok, what hurts, well nothin comes ta mind right away, head don't hurt, missed the steps by bout 2 inchs, back well as good as usual, knee, sh*t, it hurt this mornin, know, it really is bitchin, foot well thats stuck in a ladder rung an my big butts layin on the ladder! Ok one bit a brite news outa all this, I didn't swallow my chew!
9th, look around, anybody see this fiasco? No, know how ta move an not do any more damage. Slide off the ladder, get my foot out, start gettin up. I wanna go home know.
10th, my butt hurts, I landed on my can a chew, gonna have a swell bruise on my butt, got one on my leg, knee is swelled up, foot hurts an is swellin up to.
11th, pick up the ladder, it looks like I feel, move it ta the other side a the house an hobble round the next two hours.
Boss finally calls off work due ta the weather.
Damn, I'm glad ta be home!
Moral a the story, don't let yer partner set the ladder! An yes it was strapped ta the roof, but last I seen the cord it was headed north over my head!
