There is a local story about a guy in Fall River Mass who was working on the
roof of his triple decker (old New England style, 3 floors so 3 families
could live in it). As the story goes, he had his safety rope tied to the
bumper of his wife's car BUT he forgot to put the car keys in his pocket.
You can guess what happened next.
Wife goes out, starts car and drives off.
I cannot remember what happened to him but I can find out.
