I'm Tired Of You Standing On Me -- I'm Outta Here!: Self-Walking Ladder Tries To Run Away From Home

October 4, 2013


This is a video of a ladder trying to escape its abusive owner by running down the driveway into the street. PROTIP: A ladder that moves on its own is not the kind you want to be standing on when you're trying to hang Christmas lights. Also, I know it's bad luck to walk under a ladder, but what if a ladder walks over you? Is that good luck? What if a step-stool kicks you in the nuts? Because I would let one if it shaves some of the years off all the bad luck from breaking my bathroom mirror.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to lebeeps, who agrees it's important to take care of your tools so they don't try to run away or team up and kill you. Fun fact: did you know tools have never been convicted of murder? Because they always make it look like user error.

    The ladder didn't want to deal with the height of the situation.

    Truly this is in some other crazy dimension where inanimate objects can spontaneously come to life and people record video in portrait mode.

    I've had one do that while I was stocking shelves. It's the reason I know what a concussion feels like.

  • Sh17C0que

    But, was the latter alright?

    ...I just realized I took that ladder home when the store went out of business. I've had that stupid thing for almost 10 years.
