If you’ve ever worked construction or even done a home project on something above your reach, you know the value of a ladder. What may not be well known is that many professional tradesmen and tradeswomen belong to a secret cult that actually worships ladders.

That make sense. Humans tend to deify things that are essential to their survival or that they love unconditionally , like Apollo the sun god, sacred cows in India, Facebook or chocolate.

The sacred ladder sect is secret and knowledge of it is not supposed to be shared but I’m sharing. You can tell who is a member by their genuflecting each time a ladder is erected. Pay attention next time you see a construction site, but please do not tell them I told you.
