My new chair!


I searched all over for the perfect chair to use at my tiny living room table where I keep my personal laptop and where I write all of this crap (away from all of the home office stuff). I wanted something I could easily tuck away when people came over. And, I didn't want wheels of a rolling office chair getting marks on the carpet. Call me picky.

Anyway, here is the chair:

It is quite comfortable (much better than the card table chair I have been using) and has the following odd, yet impressive, notes on the warranty:

Warranty is based on an 8 hour, single shift day for users weighing up to 250 lbs. This warranty does not apply to damage caused by fire, accident, negligence, misuse, improper cleaning or other circumstances not directly attributable to manufacturing defects.


Also...

the warrant does not apply to: modifications of the product, attachments to the product not approved by OfficeEditions, and products that were not installed, used, or maintained in accordance with product instructions and warnings.



OK - this is a comfortable chair - but if you sit down at work for 8 hours a day and all you are getting is a $24 folding chair, you're getting a raw deal. I'm still pondering how I can misuse this chair (maybe I better not use it to hold up the car while I change the oil). My favorites are the modifications (install your own reclining action) and unapproved attachments (cupholders?).
