Default Roofer with a sense of irony

My roofer (well, the roofer who fettles my roof, as I'm scared of
heights) has a keen sense of irony. He announced that he had had a fall
and broken a couple of ribs, on the stairs inside his house.

Step ladders are more dangerous than roofing ladders because
because people get complacent and take more risks.

Did you rib him about it?, sorry.
II know from myself that even a slight fracture in a rib is extremely
painful, since you can hardly stop breathing and any bruising or fracture
tends to move all the time.
I've been lucky, I worked with a bloke who managed to break ribs three
times in different places, mostly due to being a motor cyclist.
