Here's a pic of a stepladder that had just been brought in to the shop of a local landscaping company. The maintenance guy there was going to repair it.....yet again.



Two of the legs had been "fixed" previously with wood, a third foot was broken, two of the fiberglass legs were cracked badly, the stays were loose and falling apart.....

I was there to service their ice machine, so while waiting for a batch to dump I had a chance to talk to the maintenance mechanic about it. He had planned on patching it up, but after hearing my broken back story it got quickly cut up and tossed in the dumpster.
