Worksafe Protection

I just witnessed one of the most amazing sights ever.

My neighbour was on his deck, scraping and cleaning his soffits. Actually, I’m not entirely sure what he was doing. Whatever it was, he decided to use some protection. He was wearing a paper bag over his head, with holes cut out for his eyes. I have no idea if the bag was protecting his eyes, his lungs, or possibly his brain from evil soffit rays. No matter what it was that he meant to do, it was goddamn funny. Funny as in, “The Onion couldn’t even make this shit up” funny. My friend Paul tried to take a picture, but I think the guy realized that people were laughing and pointing at him, and he ran inside.

Being a responsible neighbour, I ducked under the bush so he wouldn’t see me laughing.

  1. Well I certainly hope you hid behind a tree/bush! I’m still hoping they’ll put up a fence and hide the hideous wall. Otherwise, I’m growing bamboo on that side of the house.

  2. It was the neighbour the second down in the other direction.  They’re crazy I tell ya!
