Well my missus aint going up any ladders so this short arse has no option ! Can't say I've ever enjoyed the experience though !
I used to jump out of the cab of my lorry all the time but after landing heavily on the ball of my right foot and it taking months to repair we don't do that anymore.
Only (REALLY) scary heights incident was when I was working as yard gang at Ketton Cement. (Just after returning from Oz)
We were ordered to "Go muck out No.7 Cyclone Tower" (Sweep up the cement dust).
The "Tower" was the Gantry tower. ie: Right at the top of the building (A long Long way up. Nearly as high as a brickyard chimney)
So the team started sweeping and very quickly we became "Smogged out" with the dust.
Someone shouted "Fuxake open that fucking door"
As I was the one next to it I flung it open and so very nearly fell to my death. (Person next to me grabbed me back)
There were two doors next to each other - One went out onto a gantry.. the other was for the hoist. I'd opened the hoist door and very nearly fell out.
Even now, years later, I feel weak at the knees when I think of that.
I'm not really scared of heights as such but am definitely wary !
btw.. I still ended up in hospital that week as I got run over by a 200 tonne quarry dumper (fell and rolled but my left hand got crushed) I took my Semi- Licence with the compo (and ironically started driving heavies for the same company on agency )
