SH: You can’t put the sealant on the balcony with that ladder.
Me: Yes I can.
SH: No. It’s not tall enough. We need a higher ladder. Look at this one.
Me: What is that?
SH: You can change it to what you need – stepladder, extension ladder.
Me: But we have a stepladder. And Bruce is getting us an extension ladder.
SH: But it changes shapes!
Me: We don’t need that.
SH: It folds up so it doesn’t need to be stored in the garage.
Me: Why would we care that we have to put a ladder in the garage? Isn’t that where you keep a ladder? And we don’t need the sawhorse function. When’s the last time you needed a sawhorse?
Me: When’s the next time you anticipate needing one?
Me: So if we have a stepladder and an extension ladder and all we really need is a taller stepladder, why would we spend $150 on this fancy ladder?
SH: But it’s cool!
Me: You want it just because it has all these gadgets on it.
