Letter: Please return ‘borrowed’ ladder

But on the other hand, if it was stolen it just got a whole lot harder to make a living, says Bachmier.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU to the fine citizen(s) that had to borrow my extension ladder from the back of my building downtown early evening of Dec. 1.

I know you must have needed it more than I did at that moment as all I wanted to do was provide heat inside my building for my staff and customers. I hope my water doesn’t freeze and burst the pipes. It’s a nasty business having to lay people off just before Christmas.

Your emergency was obviously more urgent than mine, so you are welcome for the use of my ladder and all I ask is you return my ladder as soon as you are finished, so I can complete my repairs. Insurance is a nasty thing and I know it was an error in judgment not to ask.

But on the other hand, if it was stolen it just got a whole lot harder to make a living.

Dave Bachmier, Grand Forks
