Stupidity at its Best!

I would understand if you want to keep your windows squeaky clean by polishing them at least twice a month. I would also understand if you are cleaning the windows of a one-storey or two-storey house. Professional cleaners use safety harness to clean high-rise buildings but this one guy is either a dare-devil or just plain stupid!

I got this forwarded mail from a friend. I do hope it is not "photoshop-ed" to look like he is actually cleaning his window from a high-rise residential building in Jumeirah, Dubai.

You be the judge. All I can say - this is what you call "stupidity at its best!"

When he spotted a mark on his apartment window, this chap just had to pop out to give the glass a quick wipe with a squeegee.
Nothing odd about that – except that he lives 400ft up on the 34th floor of a tower block in Jumeirah Beach,Dubai.
He stepped out on to the narrow ledge and, holding the frame, stretched across to wipe away the annoying smudge.

As he takes his life into his hands, at least he has the sense to hold on to the window frame, even if it is by his fingertips, as he goes about his task.
He was snapped making sure the windows were sparkling by a resident in a neighbouring apartment block.
A resident of a neighbouring block who took these pictures said: ‘The professional cleaners have safety harnesses and cradles and helmets. He had nothing.’

Stretching a point: The window cleaner uses a long-handled brush to reach the corners
