I too am afraid of heights, but worked at a power plant in my younger days and there were 4 of us up working on scaffolding about stories or more up for a staging area. The guys knowing I was scared would pull up the shield and I would nylon tie it into place...hence I did not have to look down. Then one decided it would be cute to start wiggling the scaffold. I asked him several times to stop, he did and then as I was tying he came up behind me to shake and I reached back as hard as I could and caught him in the solar plexus and yes, I walked down the scaffolding and refused to go back up. The next day, he came in trying to shame me for the huge bruise he had, but my boss told him boys should know never to mess with a girl when she is scared!
That should have stated we were about 3 stories up! PS, we are still friends and he never messed with me again after that when we were on scaffolding!
Thanks for sharing that's a great story! I agree with the boss...never mess with a girl when she is scared!
