So I in no ways think I am a super fattie...I am only 5'8 and about 340 ish it fluctuates all around the 340's lol. I did however break my car's driver seat yesterday lol! I drive a ford escort, so it's a small car but still lol.

I went to get in the car and all of a sudden the seat leaned back on one side. I discovered that it had come up from the metal track on the front left side. My boyfriend clamped it back down for me today with some metal (hopefully it will hold) because the whole rocking while driving thing is not cool. The whole idea of breaking my car seat got me super turned on though so I thought I would share:happy:

I've broken a lawn chair, a few pool ladders, a few desk chairs, a scale, a seat from a couch set, a futon, and a rocking chair. Some of it because I just wasn't taking care of how I used it, though. Not exactly because of my weight.

I kept buying really cheap beds that looked nice and they just kept breaking! lol

I then bought a second hand divan for a tenner and its not broken yet so woo!

I do think people of all sizes break things, its just about stress on the joints and stuff. I just think people think more about it when the breaker is fat. Ie: if I broke someones toilet seat it would be because I'm fat, but if nik broke it it would just be one of those things lol

Good point curvy Em! I always watch myself when I am around flimsy stuff. My friend who weights all of 100 lbs broke a really flimsy chair once...it was no big deal but if I had sat in it different story lol.

Don't worry about my car Kev! It sucks but hopefully I will be getting a new one when I graduate in May!

lol Chaotic that is funny! I haven't been skinny since I was 9 so I can't compare :p.

Vampire Kitten- my friend has the most laughable bar stools in the world. I refuse to sit on them, I don't even think I can fit in them. They are metal but they lean and kind of wobble. Some kind of modern crap lol. Yea needless to say I won't even chance it!

Okay, I've killed a lawnchair in front of a group that was abusive about it, sofa parts, springs in the carseat...

However, I have a king-sized water bed. I love it and it handles my weight fairly well. I bottom out at times which isn't great for my buns, but I love my bed.

One of those flimsy plastic lawn chairs, a wooden chair (that was already broken really, I barely touched it and it broke, and a wooden toilet seat.

That last one sucked because I was staying at an acquaintance's house a few years back when I was in town for a wedding. When I got home from the wedding, kinda drunk and frisky, I somehow I did something that cracked apart the toilet seat. Don't really know what. I just gave her a Target gift card before I left...

Actually though, it was probably just some defective part with the car seat, or some metal that fatigued over time until it finally snapped. (You have to figure that in a high speed crash, there's a lot of force being instantly placed on a car seat, even if the person driving isn't very big.)

To me, that's one of the fun/sexy things about big girls though, if they're willing to have fun with it too. My ex-g/f Brandi was 5'9" and about 325lbs. and we used to get a kick out of seeing if various stuff was strong enough to support her weight or not.

I remember once, we stayed in a hotel that looked like it hadn't been remodeled since the 1970's.... We went in the bathroom and they had this ugly sink/countertop arrangement where some material was bolted to the wall on each side, with no legs or anything supporting it from underneath. Brandi was standing with her back to it, kind of leaning on it with her hands on the edge of it. Suddenly, she gets this devious look on her face and says, "Dare me to hop up here?" I just said, "Think it'll hold you?", and she says "Let's see!" and lifts her butt up onto the counter. The whole countertop made a loud creaking noise and bowed in the middle, under her. It held her though, legs dangling over the edge. She said "Wow! It's stronger than I thought it would be!" and hopped back down. That's when we noticed all the caulking along the top edges was cracked and the sink was now loose in the cut-out for the counter. Hehe....

Another cool thing was the time she tried riding her kid's PowerWheels Barbie jeep. (It was one of those ones designed for two kids to ride it side-by-side, so it actually had a somewhat decent weight-limit listed for it. I think 150lbs. or something?) Her kid quit playing with it and the battery wasn't holding a really good charge anymore, so she was going to trash it. She put it outside and one of the teenage neighbor boys dropped by, and decided to try riding it down her driveway when he found out it was getting thrown away. He was kind of surprised when he could drive it around just fine, even through her front yard. Brandi asked him how much he weighed, and he said he was around 175-180. After that, she said, "That jeep handled his weight just fine! Let's see if it can handle MY big butt! I want a turn too!"

She put the jeep at the top of the driveway and slowly lowered herself down on it. At first, it seemed like it was going to support her. It made a few popping sounds and was squatting down kind of low but she had most of her weight on it, except for her legs still on the ground, on each side of it. Then she lifted her legs and tried extending them out in front of her, over the hood of the vehicle. That's when we suddenly heard a loud crack and some suspension part must have snapped. She started laughing and said "Oh man! It *almost* held me too!"

(So our guess is, those things can probably hold almost 2x their weight limit, which is pretty impressive! Maybe some smaller BBW's can test that theory out sometime. Hehe.)



So I in no ways think I am a super fattie...I am only 5'8 and about 340 ish it fluctuates all around the 340's lol. I did however break my car's driver seat yesterday lol! I drive a ford escort, so it's a small car but still lol.

Most of the time I've broken things it always seems to happen in a very public area. One of my most embarrassing moments was while I was still in high school and occurred in front of my entire English class. On that particular day my desk gave up and surrenderred to my weight. I was so humiliated, the teacher I'm sure assumed it was a defect of the desk. Right? So she told me to go sit at another desk and it turns out that desk wasn't up to my standards either. Two desks in one day and this just added to the reasons I HATED High School. So there ya have it something I never tell anyone.

ya those things are made very poorly. It doesn't take much to break those. You would think that they would make them stronger because there made for kids so they don't hurt themselves.
