Hello, I have a sentence I wouldn't say that I doubt as well as it could be a problem of authors of a school book of mine... anyway!

Be careful! If you fall off that wall, you'll hurt yourself.

I've just filled in 'yourself', but the question is: why someone is on the wall? A person could be using ladder, because only spider-man can go on walls and accidentally fall off them :D

So, it could be an idiomatic expression? Do you say so if someone would be painting your walls?

I've seen on the forum, and on the Internet some examples (wall + fall off), but it were clocks, pictures, not people.

Waiting for your thoughts, thank you! :)
