Was also $19 on Black Friday 2010 in case that helps...seems like an annual on-sale item if you can afford to wait.

Agreed. And I want my ladders to be beautiful ... or at the very least ... adorable.

On a slightly different subject, if this ladder is rated at 250 lbs, would my 265 lb boyfriend fall thru it or would it just bend?

I'm not saying I still wouldn't send him up to change a light bulb or something, I just want to know if I should increase his life insurance policy first.

Real question is, would your 265 lb boyfriend and whatever tools, paint, or parts he's carrying fall through it?

The general rule of thumb is that you should buy a ladder (or platform) rated 10% higher than you ever plan to use it. In your case I'd be looking at no lower than a 300 lb rated ladder (but ideally 350 lb, to account for parts, tools, and gallon paint jugs).

Keep in mind ladders weather, they age, temperature changes weaken them, and so on. If you plan on keeping a single ladder for thirty years, by the end of its life its equivalent rating could be under 200 lbs and repeatedly exceeding its maximum could worsen the situation with aging.

The cost difference of upgrading is less than a single copay if you injured yourself being cheap. Just my 2c.

Is that confirmed, and will quantities be limited to the point that it's hard to find one?

I know it's hard to do dishes in the dark. But hey, you can't have a dark kitchen for too long no matter how close to the kitchen sink you stand, get your bf off that couch to screw in that light bulb. Don't use too much electricity for your menial work, get an LED bulb.

You took out an insurance policy on your bf? I've only ever seen such a thing on Dateline NBC episodes.
