    I would have accepted portable or carry step.

    This is a really difficult one.

    Whereas it seems that many continentals and some manufacturers do indeed call these contraptions 'step stools', you don't actually sit on them. Everything I have ever known suggests a stool is something to park your arse on.

    I think an owed green to Lom is in order, but with a warning to clean it up a bit and be more concise in the future.

    I don't make the rules, by the way.

    Well done Lom, an owed green from Steady is awarded. Bet you wish Dillinger was playing... his greens were worth something!

    The gf has something very similar and I have only ever seen her sit on it. For whatever reason, she has a small wooden stool which she uses to stand on.

    Both about the same height. She only sits on one and only stands on the other.

    Incidentally, we have a similar item made of plastic with just two steps that can be quite useful, even for full-grown people when trying to get something from the back of the top shelf.

    I've always called it 'that step thingy'.


    But anyway, while waiting for Lom to sift through his photograph album I'll put this one up...

    No, no and no.

    All things considered I'd say that Shutree is the closest... but he's not very close at all.

    It isn't some sort of dreadful hospital equipment, I hope.

    No it's not.

    But many doctors and nurses do use them.

    ^ No.

    Maybe I should have said that lots of people use them, including doctors and nurses. In fact, forget all about medical people and the medical angle!

    I think that may have been misleading.

    I'd forgotten about this.

    I would like to say that you're close, but I'd be lying. Not even warm.

    Around 14% of the UK population use these regularly.

    ^, ^^ I said 'regularly'...

    I could say that I used to use these all the time, but no longer.

    Is it something from which something else is poured?
    Or not?
