They wouldn't, but if they did I wouldn't climb. I used ladders all day
and every day from age 17 to age 62 and I'm still here. I do actually
know quite a lot about ladders.


you soound quite the career ladder climber.... :-)

his business was fitting tv aerials, amongst other things, so he used
ladders quite a lot
