every tool is a hammer
Now I know why stepladders aren't supposed to be leaned up against something. I was on the 2nd step of a 6' step ladder, leaning up against a machine at a factory. It pushed away from the machine. I fell and landed on my feet, but I BARKED my right shin off the step, both my triceps are bruised from blasting off the machine and my left elbow took a kill shot The whole day, the phrase OSHA ladder safety kept running thru my mind. I knew I was doing something wrong, but didn't stop to think out a better way:furious: so, for New Year's Eve, my 45 year old body is aching and paining, while that little voice sez, "I told ya."
