I thought you might find this funny.
On Thursday Dad decided to fix the leaking shed roof, so he got the ladders out (which must be at least 30 years old) and started mend it. He couldn't quite reach parts of the roof so he decided to open up the ladder and lean them against the shed while I stood on the bottom (nothing wrong with it). All was going well until the metal clip that was holding the ladder straight bent and they gave way. I felt the ladder go, but it wasn't till I looked up I saw that dad was stuck on the shed roof with the ladder underneath him. At this point I looked at mum who was standing only feet away and we both burst out laughing. We tried to pull the ladder out from under dad but he was shouting to us to stop, saying it was hurting, we realised that the crutch of his trousers had got wrapped around a rung on the ladder and when we pulled it it was pulling him too. Still in fits of laughter we managed to free the ladder and eventually get him down, he was covered in black mastic which he had been gluing the roof with and grazes from his elbows to his wrists, which only made our fits of laughter continue. "I'm glad you find it amusing" he scorned.
He was lucky really that the roof held his weight, because of the amount of crap in the shed he would have been in real trouble had he gone through it. I know we should have been concerned but all we could do was laugh, it was like a scene from a carry on film. I wish I'd had the camera running, could have sent it into 'you've been framed'.
After cleaned himself up, he went to inspect the ladder to find out what had happened to it, only to then say "Who made them? I'm going to sue!".
Having a cup of tea he turned to mum and said "Now you've unsuccessfully tried to kill me on the shed roof, what else do you want me to do?"
"Finish the driveway" she replied.
"No, you'll probably drop a paving slab on my head" he finished.
Now I call him Stunt Devil.
Awww, poor dad, but it was hilarious.
