it was a bit dicey at first but I kept my nerve and put the banner up succesfully
At the weekend when looking for some dining table mats.
I stood on two different chairs. Neither were suitable height and I'm in a bit of a quandry
I want to put up a new curtain pole and curtain.
There are no step ladders in my new house.
I'm not gonna admit to breaching any regulations narco.
This sort of half-arsed approach to thread starting is killing this country.
For example: I noticed that on the chair in my girlfriend's house, which she uses to stand on to put money on her electricity, the screw is coming loose and it could collapse at any moment.
I keep forgetting to tell her though. I could be responsible for her breaking a limb or something at some point. And I can't be arsed to put up with that, let's be honest.
It's more likely she doesn't read anything you write, though.
cos one of the light fittings in the kitchen looked a bit dodgy. But it's the only kitchen light that still works, so I left it.
To get a box down from the top of my office wardrobe, which I was sure had something in it that I really needed. It didn't.
Its a swivel office chair on wheels, it moved slightly as I reached, and I remember thinking to myself 'I could die here'. I got my soup though.
at about 3.55pm.
there is a thriller being made outside my house and they asked if they could come into the back garden to set up lights. I was being nosey and put a seat the top of the stairs to get a good look at what was going on from the landing window. Dont know why i didnt just go out and stand in the back garden to talk to them.
Can't remember when I stood on a chair or stool last though.
chair was in way of window so i stood on it to get to window, then pushed chair into window bay and stood on it......good exercise plus you can see more and you have an attacking advantage (were any thief to sneak into the room whilst I was standing on the chair)
i was in my room and the light was off and i could hear teenagers outside. One of them shouted ''lets break in here'' and jumped up on the wall outside my bedroom window which was open. His face was level with the window... what he hadnt realised (yet) was that i had pushed my face right up against the window..
he seen me, and stared me out for a while then shat himself and jumped down. Now im known as ''that woman'' lol
thats when you know you've finally got old :( im not longer a girl
but I still have a long way to go, I wish I were a natural like Trotsky
1. My manager asked me to listen to the phone system which is in a box near the ceiling in my office. I had to stand on a chair.
2. Once I stood on a chair to reach something that was high up.
3. I can't think of a third.
Then you could maybe stand on a chair and it would give you a valuable way of avoiding putting your feet into the lava (for a second)
Also if you were in The good the bad and the ugly then it is a useful way of putting off being strangled to death by a noose
you could step up onto a chair seat then put your other foot up onto the back and somhow manage to tumble the chair as your weight brings you down to the ground whilst the chair rotates in the air and flips to hit a baddun on the head (its a lot smoother and more fluid in reality compared with my ugly stilted text
I was expecting more. You said you had a good story - tell us more about the phone-system-listening
He made me listen to it to see if it was noisy. It wasn't noisy. I told him it wasn't noisy. The end.
.......................................................................................(or are you?)
Hang on.......did he phone you up......then ask you to stand on your chair with the phone listening to him up there?
I think he's been having a laugh with you
or worse......did you check he wasnt hiding under a false floor looking up?
Trying to clamber out of White Heart Lane ahead of the mass exodus.
On a wheely office chair reaching for heavy folders from the top shelf.
