Ladder slid out from me today

Saved by a bungee tied at the top!

Good to have a close call, I guess it's easy to get complacent.

J/K glad it's no harm no foul mate.

Glad your ok. I can vividly remember being at the very top of my A frame ladder cleaning away, then watching in horror as the tip of the ladder started moving down the million bar of the window. It was like slow motion. It suddenly stopped as the bottom of the ladder caught on a slightly raised slab on the patio.

Precariously I crept down and off the ladder and cursed myself for not checking how slippery the patio was.

Bloody frightened the sh1t out of me that did. Bet most have had close calls on here

I think most of us have had a fall in the past

It certainly makes you less complacent afterwards

 

Glad you're ok mate as it could have been painfull

Came off the ladder in beginning of February, stupidly on slush! Damaged ligaments in my ankle but was lucky, immediately went and got dedicated ladder feet with a large footprint.
