There is a lot of truth to the idea that there are different jobs for different people everywhere.  I witnessed one of those jobs today.  It was time for our windows to get washed here at the Rand Building.  So how do they get the ones on the upper floors?

An incredibly brave guy climbs out of the window with just one strap, and he washes them.  For the record, I will never be that guy.  I hate heights!  My palms started to sweat just watching him do it.  I don't know if I just had a different view of how they would get the job done, but a guy with just one strap draped around his back was not what I had pictured!

Just for a frame of reference, here is what the view looks like looking down from our window on the 12th floor:

It got me thinking, what is the worst/scariest job there is?  There are plenty of them out there, and I have to give kudos to the people who work them!
