When Jonathan and I were walking to dinner Thursday night, we saw two guys going into the window of a townhouse.
As you can see, the guys are trying to get into an upper-story window, and the ladder isn’t tall enough. So they have the bottom of it balanced on the wrought-iron fence, and the top of it against the wall of the building.
Part of me thought “Darwin Award,” but maybe when you live in England you’re taught that balancing ladders on wrought-iron fences is the safe way to work. And the guy made it in, so it worked.
Plus, the guys looked old enough to have been doing this for a long time. If they could survive the Blitz, they’re entitled to balance ladders on fences to make it easier to climb through upper-story windows.
