Ladder Luck

I am constantly amazed by some of the most seemingly mundane things. If you think walking under a ladder is bad luck, then you definitely wouldn't want to walk under one of these.

These trucks are employed to move people in and out of their apartments that might be located on any one of the 20 floors of an apartment building. The very small truck runs out a ladder and then a platform is moved up and down carrying items up to the apartment balcony.

From a distance these are kind of interesting, but up close they are down right scary. There is so little supporting either the truck, the platform or the extension that the whole thing looks like it might topple over. I take a wide berth as I walk around...Just to be on the safe side.
