Toodles old chair!

Yesterday I went in to buy perogies and ended up buying a computer chair instead! I rolled the floor model up to the front, mentioned to the clerk I was interested in buying it, but wasn’t sure if it would fit in my car. She offered to roll it out to then car then painstakingly put it in my jeep. While she was maneuvering it to fit the seat I noticed a dirty spot and a tear on the underside.I got that feeling of disappointment in the pit of my stomach. You have no idea how many computer chairs I have sat on in the last three years. Especially in my price range. The rip wasn’t noticeable, and wouldn’t affect the actually seat of the chair but the clerk kindly offered to reduce the price. We went back into the store, I usually jump at a discount, in fact it was at a Liquidation World where this all transpired. Instead I took a second to ponder the longevity of the chair and decided the rip wasn't worth a ten dollar discount. I opted for the boxed version instead. So the girl went back to my jeep, pulled the chair out, rooted around in the warehouse, brought the boxed version back to my car. Yes…. yesterday I was that nightmare annoying fat lady customer, probably not the best part of her day!

Bryan assembled it last night while I was asleep. Hurrah! It was time for a new one, dontcha think? The old one is sixteen years old! What a difference eh? No wonder I have had so many back aches lately!

Hey you ain't no fat lady sweetie. You made a wise choice and she earned her wage. That is all that happened.

You want to see some cool art. Drop by my site and click on the link to "Dragon", in the list of other peeps sites I have there. This gal is right in our gall park with her art style. Let me know what you think. I think it rocks personally.
