I gave it to good will not long ago, and used a 20$ plastic chair for a year or more maybe. Recently I was lifting myself up to put my leg underneath me and the arms broke off and the back cracked. So I've decided to invest in a chair, as I figure I might as well be comfy while I'm immobile.
I have a built in desk so with some chairs the arms hit the middle draw before I can even scoot in. Right now I'm using some big black chair I had from when I moved into the dorms last year. I have it sitting in my room in front of the tv, so I just moved it over. You sit down in it so it kinda hurts after a while when your on the computer.
Now that I probably gave you way more info than necessary, what do you guys think my best bet would be? Going to Cosco and seeing what I could find or like Staples?
I don't wanna take the chance ordering something online since I dono what I'm getting. I got a tv cabinet from overstock and besides the fact I put part of it on backwards it was a good buy. But I analyzed the picture for a week before I ordered it so i had some idea.
2nd time tonight I had a good laugh at your expense. You're on a roll! ... then I noticed your name, Lollies.. troll account?
I'll play fair and give you guys a chance to laugh at me also. I am over 300 lbs. While that may sound like a mega fatty, believe it or not at 6'3" and with a big footballer frame I only look 'overweight'.
Needless to say, I have demolished so many desk chairs it is not even funny. I had one that all 5 roller wheels broke off by the time I'd had it 2 months and it was actually a very nice chair (real leather, highback over $200 from Office Depot). Major design flaw? Plastic roller wheel housing.
As if that wasn't bad enough, I took a metal base from a similar chair and duct taped (Black duct tape, comeon I have a LITTLE class!) it so the chair was stacked right on top and could roll again. I used this rig for well over a year.
A few days ago the column on it broke, like literally snapped in half a 1 inch or more piece of metal. I am now using a leather recliner as my desk chair and I love it! Hopefully I won't break this one... it seems a lot sturdier than any office chair that ever existed.
