(2003 to 2005)

Wasting my time.

Because I drink a lot of cola, I go to the bathroom a lot.

The problem with going to the bathroom, is that you have to move.

I have to get out of my chair and then come back.

Many months ago I was really angry and I kicked the living shit out of my chair.

I broke one of the wheels.

It's a good chair, but the wheel is broken.

Because it cost hundreds of dollars, and because “I bought this upon myself”, I've just been living with my broken chair.

I estimate that I waste about 10 to 20 minutes a day 'repositioning' my chair.

It annoys the crap out of me, and is bad for my concentration.

Every time I come back to my chair, I have to readjust the wheels so that the broken one is directly behind me, or else my back has to compensate for the subtle 'slope'. Adjusting it is really hard, it's almost impossible to get right.

Sometimes I'm busting to go to the bathroom, but I don't because I finally got my chair in the right position.

I think I should get a new chair.


p.s. If you're angry because people are fuck-wits, don't take it out on your chair, you will regret it. Break your keyboard instead. Keyboards are cheap.
