I saw a building maintenance guy in the building next door changing lightbulbs.
He had a long metal expanding pole with an attachment on the end for grabbing lightbulbs from high overhead fixtures.
At first I thought, there is a clever contraption.
Upon further reflection I realized that he was sticking a metal pole into light fixtures. Sure, 99.9% of the time the lightbulb doesn't break, but…
I think there is a reason electricians use fiberglass ladders after all.
