From the submitter:
So, this guy figured out that if one ladders equals one level 3 of them will get them right to the 3rd floor, quite intersting solution.
Three Department of Public Works employees painting a bridge over a creek. Two of them set up a work platform made out of two stepladders and a plank. The third, a little smarter that those two and probably a supervisor, elected not to use the work platform and erected his own stepladder in the creek. At least they have their hip-waders on.
"Just grab the ladder." "No." "Come on, it's literally right there. Like, seriously. I can almost reach it" "No dude, I heard about this new thing called workers' comp. I haven't checked, but I'm sure we'll be eligible. Don't you want free money?"
