Man’s DIY Fail Ends Up With Him Falling Through The Ceiling
A fella carrying out some home improvements with his partner ended up creating a whole load more mess after he fell through their ceiling.
Ashleigh Poulter shared a snap of her poor boyfriend with his head popping out the ceiling after their home renovation attempts didn't quite go according to plan.
Posting the snap, she wrote: "We're in the middle of renovating our house. I spent all morning cleaning up the dust from taking out the stairs, within two actual minutes of me stopping, he falls though the ceiling and well... you can imagine the dust. (He's fine)."
She then updated her post, adding: "Yes, he is absolutely fine and we both just had to laugh about it! We've had so many issues with the house so far, we've had no choice but to laugh and get the Hoover back out. I'm so pleased it's made everyone giggle."
Since the photo was posted, it's quickly racked up likes and comments, with many people laughing at Robert McFarlane and others sharing their own DIY mishaps. One understanding person wrote: "Oh god. My hubby fell through the loft, so much mess! You have my sympathies."
Another added: "I once asked my husband to take the tiles off the wall in the bathroom. Instead he managed to take the wall off."
Still, at least Ashleigh only had to deal with her other half, unlike an Aussie homeowner who had to call out animal control when a couple of mating scrub pythons crashed through their ceiling.
Matt Hagan, of the Cairns Snake Catcher Facebook page, was called out to a home in July after the homeowner spotted a huge crack and a pair of amorous reptiles above.
He told Cairns Post: "They were a breeding pair, so they were curled up together.
"It's unusual to get them that big in the roof. But it's a good start to the breeding season!
"They make a lot of noise.
"If you are lucky enough to host a scrub python party in your roof space this breeding season it can get pretty wild as males fight each other to impress females.
"Occasionally these interactions can result in strange smells wafting through different rooms, and even structural damage to your house in the form of ceiling stains or cracks."
