(My dad and brother worked in the drywall spacklers union, traveling down together to the big casinos to work on and back for a number of years. This is the one story my dad loves to tell.

My dad is working on a stairwell while my brother is working on a high reach machine. There are a number of caution tape and signs saying do not enter, but as we all know sometimes people just don’t follow directions.

My brother needs to move to another spot while high in the air, so he looks down to make sure everything is clear when he spots an old lady sitting on his tire! So my brother calls out to my dad that he needs help while pointing down to the floor.

My dad walks down the stairs to tell this lady to move. He points up to even show my brother who is just waiting to get back to work. The old lady just stared at my dad, then looks up, then looks at my dad again before deciding to get up and shuffle off.

This happened while I was young, and it has been five years since I lost my brother, but man when people are in casinos do all common sense fly out the window!)
