Man, I wish I had a camera...

I saw something today that makes me KNOW who I won't be using the next time we need a roof on our house. Of course, I doubt if any of these guys will live long enough to actually make it across town, so it is pretty much a no-brainer.

I was dropping the cousin off at her house. Her neighbors are getting a new roof. The house is one of those big ol' 2 story boxes. So the edge of the roof is what, 25 or 30 feet in the air or so?

These knuckleheads were using two extension ladders to get to the roof. So how do you use two extension ladders at the same time? Duct tape of course.

Yep, they were climbing up to the roof on two ladders DUCT TAPED together. Nice!

I hope the company has a good worker's comp program.

Edit: 4/8/08

OK, the crew was gone of course, but I drove past the house again today. AND I had a camera with me. So there you go...
