This guy is doing stucco work on my parents' house as we speak...standing on a bucket...that's resting on a work bench. Surely there's a safer way!?
The other guy who fixed the wall beneath the stucco earlier this week did some acrobatics of his own which I unfortunately didn't capture on film. He was standing on the railing of the balcony, holding a 30 foot piece of wood, with a cigarette dangling from his mouth.
I can't imagine how bad you could possibly want a cigarette at the point where you are willing to smoke one on what is essentially a balance beam 2 stories high . But instead of a padded mat below you, it's slate steps and concrete.
Oh, and of course no hard hats were worn. Safety is overrated!
