    My grandpa, my best friend, fell out of my attic working on the electric for my new upstairs room today. He is my best friend. He is at the hopsital, and Im home alone because I have to wait for my brother to get here.

    I dont know what to do guys.. My dad text me and said he should be fine, but what if not? I dont know what to do.

    Calm me down. Post something funny. Get Mark to fail or something.

    How'd he fall? Ladder broken or what? :atoz:

    If you can find out exactly what happened, maybe helping prevent the problem next time would make you feel better. :)

    Glad he's going to be okay. Grandpa's are hard to find. :hyper:

    I agree. Especially one like mine.

    We had a generic attic. Took out a closet, made steps, and made a huge hole in the ceiling to make the steps possible. My mom insists we keep a tarp over the hole...

    The tarp is the same color as the floor! We have said since day one its a bad idea, but she had to have it. Its on the floor in the hallway.

    Im guessing he backed up on it, just guessing it was floor from the corner of his eye. Im freaking out.
     
  9. If he's worked nonstop he might be in better shape than you think.

    Hope he is doing well.

    Off topic, to get my head out of it:

    How can I post a feedback on a seller if he PMd me the offer. There is no sale thread.

    I want to leave feedback because he is a good seller.

    he'll be ok. You should see my dad, he's fallen off ladders, down stairs, UP stairs...unfortunately I've inherited his wonderful physical grace.
    Yesterday I was walking into my tv room, smashed my toes on the side of the entertainment center, went to grab my foot in agony and losing balance fell down onto the dog who promptly ran and peed in the other room. This of course prompting the missus to start screaming at me while I'm writhing in pain on the floor...it just isn't fair... and all your grandpa did was fell out of the attack, sheesh, be thankful he's not a klutz it could have been far worse!

    My grandpa fell off his roof, onto a driveway, whilst re-roofing his gargage. No injuries at all. He'll be fine.
