Have you ever had an "OH SHIT" moment ?

Do you prefer disposable or cloth diapers?
Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 22:17:51 UTC
Cloth is the most economic way to go.
Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 22:17:24 UTC
Work is never fun when there's a lot of wind. You will swa a bit and that's not the best feeling at 60 stories up. But my biggest oh shit moment was when my co-worker on the stage beside me's stage malfunctioned. We work with motorized scaffolds and it malfunctioned. The cables on the left side let loose and dropped 45 degrees. Watching it, I thought my buddy was about to die. Luckily nothing like that has happened to me.

Do you ever scare the shit out of people in offices(etc.)?/Have you ever pulled pranks on people in offices(etc.)?
Only_Posts_Facts579 karma2013-04-06 09:41:21 UTC
No, my boss is really adamant about not messing with people working. But every halloween I dress up like spiderman.
aussie_muppet150 karma2013-04-06 09:43:29 UTC
I don't think I could of expected a better "no" answer!
Only_Posts_Facts170 karma2013-04-06 09:45:34 UTC
It's good fun! I wish I could do it everyday. It really lightens up the office workers day.
aussie_muppet55 karma2013-04-06 09:47:34 UTC
Maybe you could do it every day?
Ask your boss, they may like it?
Only_Posts_Facts148 karma2013-04-06 09:49:00 UTC
Na I already know the answer lol. Plus it's not the most comfortable thing to wear for 8 hours.

What does a job iike that pay?
Only_Posts_Facts258 karma2013-04-06 09:59:13 UTC
I get 33k a year. I know it's not a lot, but I earn enough to live comfortably and I enjoy my job! Not many jobs beat the view I have.
docere8568 karma2013-04-06 10:00:02 UTC
glad to hear, i assume you are good at it. How dangerous is your job?
Only_Posts_Facts194 karma2013-04-06 10:06:19 UTC
Not very. I wouldn't call him a friend, but a man I met a couple of times broke a few bones and is now paralyzed from a 4 story fall he took. He didn't clip in his safety restraints properly and fell while reaching too far. What happened to him is exactly why I double check my safety equipment every time I go up.
galaktos88 karma2013-04-06 09:45:25 UTC
Do you look into the offices or do you just focus on the window?
If you look into the offices, what stories do you have? Anything weird / funny?
Only_Posts_Facts217 karma2013-04-06 09:52:00 UTC
The main building I clean has very tinted/reflective windows, so I can barely see anything. But one of the other two buildings I'm occasionally at I once saw a guy with a suit top but no pants on. Luckily he was wearing underwear. As soon as he saw me he ran to another room. I really hope there were other people in the room he ran into, and to this day I have no idea what he was doing. Most likely a mid-day jerk session.
caltp92 karma2013-04-06 09:56:06 UTC
Maybe it was Marshall :o
Only_Posts_Facts155 karma2013-04-06 09:57:08 UTC
It WAS Marshall!
Mr_Rotten_Treats39 karma2013-04-06 09:48:38 UTC
Do you ever put on a costume?
Only_Posts_Facts83 karma2013-04-06 09:53:23 UTC
Yup! Only on halloween though. I dress up like spiderman.
InsanitySheWolf38 karma2013-04-06 13:39:06 UTC
Has the weather ever quickly taken a turn for the worse while you were cleaning?
Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 22:34:32 UTC
Quite often. If the forecast calls for high wind or rain, we usually won't go up that day. But often a big gust of wind will hit us while we're 60 stories up, and that is a very sketchy feeling. Quite the adrenaline rush though.
humbucker_2310 karma2013-04-06 13:28:32 UTC
As a person who gets terrified when there is a chance I could fall to my death...what safety precautions are taken to make sure this doesn't happen?
Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 22:35:54 UTC
We're latched in with our harnesses, and the scaffolds we're on are very sturdy and safe.
lastfatality0910 karma2013-04-06 13:46:24 UTC
How do you live with your HUGE BALLS?
Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 22:36:34 UTC
It's a burden. Funny thing is I had a slight fear of heights when I started, but needed a job and overcame it. Now I love heights.
rkarwecki779 karma2013-04-06 13:35:16 UTC
Do you constantly listen to this song while you work?
Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 22:37:27 UTC
We're required to listen to that song twice a day, or else we don't get paid.
NovarisBlueHusky6 karma2013-04-06 14:17:15 UTC
Ever dropped anything?
Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 22:43:08 UTC
At least 100 towels lol. I blame the wind for most of those, and not tucking it far enough into my bag.
Phyco1264 karma2013-04-06 13:42:40 UTC
What is the tallest building you have cleaned? What is the average height?
Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 22:52:46 UTC
I wash all different size buildings. Tallest was the Park Tower in Chicago at 68 stories I think it is.
METALPIGSOLID3 karma2013-04-06 15:01:27 UTC
How strong is the crane that supports your massive balls?
Only_Posts_Facts3 karma2013-04-06 22:59:41 UTC
They use it to build sports stadiums when I don't need it.
fourthbrn3 karma2013-04-06 14:07:44 UTC
Have you ever pissed from up there? I think it would be a ton of fun.
Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 22:56:13 UTC
You don't know how bad I've wanted to sometimes.
chowder1382 karma2013-04-06 15:12:21 UTC
Have you ever fallen off and died?

Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 23:04:59 UTC
Dude wasn't wearing pants in his office. When he saw me he freaked and ran into another room. I lost it.
Iamthediscofish2 karma2013-04-06 15:24:14 UTC
Thanks for the AMA, always wanted to ask someone in your line of work some questions.
How would someone get a job like yours?
Did you want to do this when you were a kid?
Are there any hidden downsides to your job?
Only_Posts_Facts2 karma2013-04-06 23:07:50 UTC
These days, just check out websites for the companies and see if they're taking applications. Even if not, send an email/call and say you're interested.
Nope, never even considered it. I kind of fell into the job and I love it.
Being a foot away from windows all day and being on a 10 foot long stage kind of makes me claustrophobic sometimes. It also gets old seeing your reflection. Seeing that beautiful face gets old after awhile.
