WIDLM: my chair

We’re going small time this week. I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out what I don’t like and it’s been right under my… nose.

I got this chair about 8 years ago. It is a Costco computer chair. Probably like $90. And I have sat in it quite a bit. I have sat in it so much at this point that pretty much all the padding has been smooshed the sides where I don’t sit. It makes the chair difficult to use for the marathons I would put it to. It is not so uncomfortable that I move around very much more than I would otherwise, though, I don’t think. Once it gets to that point it will probably actually sorta be a good thing, and I’ll probably switch chairs.

In the mean time, if any of you have any techniques or fixes for this particular problem, let me know.

    Hello, did you know that chairs are built with ratings for how long at a time they’re intended for being used?  A $90 is almost never rated for more than a couple of hours.  Well if you have any more questions you be sure to let me know.

    Your friend,

  • I did not know that. I’m sure you’re right that my chair was never rated for the kind of abuse I put it to. Still, while your advice will certainly aid me in avoiding this problem in future, it doesn’t really help me with my current predicament. So my original plea for a solution would be my follow up question. I put it to the internet at large.

    You could ignore my plight, siding w/ Big Chair, and believe I deserve my fate for not properly observing the chair rating code, but if you choose not to, that’d be swell.
