The story of the chair

So I have a horrid morning getting Ray into daycare. It happens, and I’m almost used to it. And then it’s off to Office Max to buy home office supplies.

First things first – a chair. I’ve been using a wooden chair from the kitchen set for about a year now. But We may actually NEED that chair now that Ray is older and we have another on the way.

I sat in every chair for sale in the store (except the obviously unacceptable ones) and settled on a cloth Samsonite for $169. Grab tag, grab chair mat, head to cash register.

Delivery only. No worries, they can have it to my house tomorrow. Cool.

Out of stock. Is 7-10 days OK? Nope.

I head back with the guy to pick out a chair. As he’s putting the tag for this one back he says : “this chair? I think we have one.”

They had one.

It’s now in my house, and my back is happy.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
