Leave the dirty work to your professional gutter cleaning service
It’s a scene you’ve likely seen in a comedy in the theater (or in your home). Mom leaves the home to run some errands. Dad thinks he’s finally going to clean out the gutters, a job he’s been putting off for some time. He props the ladder up against the roof and gets to work. Just as he’s getting started he notices that Sparky the dog is running around chasing the cat. Sparky gets into a standoff around the ladder, and before Dad can help it, he goes tumbling down, entangled with the ladder.
