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.
