My mom used to break a lot of broom sticks on me because she always injured his hands otherwise, but you and the belt surely win this one dude...Well, honestly, in this day and age, that's kinda what came to my mind first, but I was like, wait, that's actual comic from the past. I almost reacted with a "triggered" reaction, and then remembered, wait, my mom used to whip my ass when I fucked up (with a belt, though).
NSFW i guess...
Build something similar with my dad when painting the stairwell but not this high. Sometimes we do stupid stuff.I've seen this being done several times, even been part of quite a few (shitting myself going up them, I didn't set them up).
Scaffolding as a young teen was madness as well. Instant death with every wrong step. Taking the next pole up to secure and the next boards was terrifying. You just click your brain off.
