A redditor, ChapmanYerkes, shared a hilarious picture on r/funny subreddit after his dad survived a 10- ft fall from a ladder through the drop ceiling.
As a way of looking at the brighter side of the accident (he managed to catch the lucky dad on his way down), ChapmanYerkes made him a Christmas gift from the tile that he went through.
He captioned the post this way:
r/funny – The other day my dad fell off a 10 ft ladder and through a drop ceiling. I just happened to be walking by and was able to catch him on his way down. This was the tile he went through and now his Christmas present is finished.
As of Christmas evening, the post by ChapmanYerkes has generated over 87.9k views and 816 Comments.
Here are some of the funny reactions by redditors:
I’m pretty sure if I fell through a ceiling, mine would say “clumsy twat”, but that’s practically a compliment in the UK.
Am British, can confirm. Female equivalent would be “daft tart”
As a redneck, we say “what the hell’re ye doin, ya dumbass”
As an Aussie, we would just say “stupid cunt.”
“I was having trouble coming up gift ideas for dad… and then it hit me.”
Edit: thanks for the award!
“What do you think a christmas gift idea is just going to fall in your lap?”
Thankfully, you always looked up to him.
I’m glad you understand.
And he Underdad
That’s genius and heartwarming at the same time
And yet still manages to throwy a little shade at the same time
So you’re saying it hits all the important points.
More or less. Only thing that could he missing is revealing a deep dark and dramatic secret op has been hiding for years.
ChapmanYerkes took time out to reply some redditors who asked if both men are okay following the miraculous rescue.
Other redditors used the opportunity to share their personal funny stories.
Dam lucky. Is he ok?
Yeah, not a scratch
How about you? Are you ok?
Got a little bonk in the face, but no damage.
Reminds me of a line my friends dad said years ago.
He dropped me and my friend off at my house in the winter, and my friend slipped on the driveway and completely wiped out.
He called his dad later to come get him.
“Dad, can you come pick me up?”
“Why? Did you fall again?”
I spotted my dad on a ladder once. He leaned to far and the ladder tipped. I grabbed him and helped tip the ladder back. Just 2 big hand falls of Dad ass. We’ve never spoken about it.
Your dad must be small as hell when you can catch him from a 10ft fall.
Lol he kinda is, probably about 5’4”. My initial intention was to just slow his fall but he ended up in my arms like I was taking him home on my wedding night.
Small dad kids unite. I’m 6 foot. My dad is 5’1″.
You guys are making me feel tall. I’m 5’6” and my wife at 5’9” I expect my daughters to be be taller than me by highschool.
