Those who know me know I am a cheapskate. For the past eight years my computer desk chair is one I salvaged. The right arm support had broken plastic covered with bubble wrap and duct tape. The duct tape was wearing out.
Yesterday found me in an office building where a tenant was selling off chairs and computer monitors.
The first chair selected didn’t fit. The office manager was kneeling trying to make the various levers work. Her low cut peasant style top didn’t cover her ample assets well and I had time to do a good check out.
Another chair did fit (pictured above) and I tried to negotiate. The quoted price was $40. Doing my best Fred Sanford imitation I clutched my chest. The ladies called me on my bullshit so I showed them my pacemaker scar.
Had them all laughing, usually a prelude to getting the price down. No go.
Bought the damned chair for the asking price. Perhaps a bit of little head thinking? Again, nice assets and my sex life has me feeling married.
I’m soooo ashamed!
