The Chair

We found this chair at work. More precisely, we noticed it one day. It just kind of appeared, and nobody knows exactly when it arrived or who it belonged to.

It's similar to your standard office chair with dark blue fabric and dusty black plastic frame. We pretty much agree it's what they call a "manager's chair", because it has the high back and arms typical of that style. But there's something besides the back and arms that tells me it's a chair for management. The seat has this odd, indentation, that I've never seen before. It's designed that way too.


We have theories about the reason for it. I'll list three of them here:

1. The indentation prevents the manager's voice from being muffled when he's making a command decision.

2. It's designed to hold the overflow when the manager wets himself upon discovering the catastrophic consequences from one of his decisions.

3. The indentation relieves stress on the neck when the manager is in the typical managerial position.

So what do you think? Give us your thoughts, theories and conjecture. Be creative and entertain us.

PS. if you know what it's really for, we'd like to know that too.

1 As a management person, I resemble that remark and will get even with you if it's the last thing I do here.

Actually, that was pretty good!

2 Obviously it was custom made for a hemmoroid sufferer....

3 We actually have one of these chairs in darkish red. It has a pump bulb on the side for lumbar support.

The hole in the seat is to reduce pressure in the lower back and to encourage good posture, as you can't sit comfortably, slouched over, in that chair.

(The person it was bought for found it made her back pain even worse, so it sits unused.)

4 Susie, someone with hemmoroids like that would probably be begging to die, not going to work. LOL

John, that's interesting. I've never seen anything like it. Our new office chairs adjust 12 ways from sunday, but that little 'well' just threw us.

5 Bartender? How the hel to you "resemble" a remark?
