I hate some jobs…

There are some jobs around the house that I dislike doing for various reasons – but this weekend saw me attempting what so far has to be my least favourite.

Gutters.

Yes, those plastic things that catch the rain off the roof…

Why is this such a problem? That would be my fear of ladders. Specifically my fear of climbing them… or rather, falling from them…

Why I have no problem with a 200ft rollercoaster or drop-tower ride, but will have real problems on a 20ft ladder, I don’t know… must be something to do with knowing the rides are generally safe, and ladders generally aren’t… especially ladders with little labels on that say “Max Weight 110kg” (but as my name isn’t Max…)

Or maybe I’m just mad.
