Don't Put the Ladder on the Drop Cloth: a wisdom tidbit

Tuesday night, a friend related how, in a rush to get a painting job completed, he had placed the foot of the ladder on the drop cloth on the tile floor. You can see where this is going.

Wednesday morning, seeing the tiny traffic cones around the road work near my house, I was prompted to compose a bit of poetic wisdom for the moment before you put the ladder on the drop cloth on the tile.

don't assume.
know your resources.
triple-check the safety measures.

don't assume.
clarify your limits.
watch the work zone.

PS: My friend was saved from certain destruction by his lovely wife. Whew!
