Stairs. We’ve all had our misunderstandings with them. Though necessary evils of civilized society, these looming little levels are something many of us have unfortunately learned first-hand are never to be completely trusted. Don’t believe us? After viewing this extensive list of stair fails, you’ll reconsider your trusting relationship with the sneaky little bastards.
