Wow, just seeing that image makes me nervous, and I automatically cringed. I've done sheetrocking, plastering, and painting in the past (framing, HVAC, and batt insulation as well) and never done or seen anything quite so risky/stupid on any job or by any people I ever worked with/for. That's just asking for injury imho.

Title def checks out, lol.

Hey man if the physics works out there should be almost no load on the far side support!

They're professional enough to plastic off everything.
So they have some experience.

Why didnt they just add this to their ladder collection:

'Little Giant' ladder
I have one of those. I've wished I had bought the taller version. (mine goes to 17'...which was all I needed at the time)

Speaking of ladders got a good deal at HD for one the other day. Needed a 6 foot step ladder for working on the garage as the super tall one I have was too cumbersome to move around (very small in there) and I noticed it was dented but not enough to be dangerous. They let me have it for $50 instead of the regular $100.

Yeah they are great painting ladders. They are quite heavy though so women tend to not like them much.
