another lawn chair! Down to 3 now lol
How does it break??
I sit down and the legs bend and break off:doh:
I hope you did not get hurt. I am surprised that you broke the chairs despite being on the light side of the curves here.
I wish I had a girlfriend to allow me to factually contribute to the thread.
I have to agree! They break with such ease that your weight must be concentrated on your lower parts, or so i would think with my imagination.. Stupid weak lawn chairs!
Honestly, some of them are so poorly engineered and cheaply made that it's a wonder they don't collapse when even skinny people use them!
This isn't exactly a break but my partner was apparently sitting on a wooden chair in his house every day for a while and one day a skinny friend of his came round and sat on the same chair and it just cracked and broke! My bf is around 450lbs so I guess taking that weight repeatedly just weakened it! He sticks to to the metal leg chairs now!
Well I just officially broke my first thing! I sort of thudded down on my bed as I usually do and there was a huge cracking sound, loud enough that my family were concerned and asking what that was. I actually checked my bed frame it was so loud! It seems though that I broke something inside of the mattress as the part I flopped down on now has no resistance at all if I lean on it and just squashes down flat. It was an old mattress but I am still in shock! :doh:
My futon is broken. The area where I sit is now sinking. Time to replace it I think.
This Xmas I was so embarrassed. Being the holiday I dressed up in a blue buttondown shirt, nice slacks and a belt to hold my big belly in. Well obv I gorge myself during dinner to a point where I overate so much I could barely move. I stood up and stretched out raising my hands to my side. Then with a gunshot pop my belt bursted off of me flying to the floor and revealing a big brown button on my slacks.
Sooooo...I was sitting on my son's desk chair, which is like a folding chair, but padded, and supposedly sturdier...and I suddenly felt the chair literally bending beneath my weight. It didn't actually break...but it is definitely not a useable chair anymore. :blush: :doh:
Well if you have to pay for it, sorry to hear that. Otherwise, nice lol
Well, my son is only 8...so I think he'll forgive me and not make me pay for it. *Giggles*
Hahaha that's cute
How much do you weigh?
I think a chair of a 8 year old Boy is not made for a big woman! Every time when i am in a furniture store and the the furniture for Kids ore Teens then i think: Will this hold the weight of my girlfriend or will it break immediately?
Well, lol, this was actually a type of "sturdy" folding chair with padding. It's a full size desk with the full size chair...so in essence, I broke an adult chair. :blush:
How do you feel about that?
Probably not the word every FA wants to hear...embarrassed. Kind of like "Oh wow"! :doh: :blush:
Was this your first furniture breaking??
