Buying a chair

I thought it would be an easy thing. Actually I thought the only people who do that kind of thing are those who draw up balance sheets and things. Companies. But like most things, a guy has to do what a guy has to do.

I kind of pictured it to be like buying T-shirts. You check in, and as long as you like how it looks, and it has a tag somewhere on it reading XL, you just take it with you. No need to try it on or anything. Chairs, apparently, are a whole different story. You can't just look at one, and go "I like that one. I'll take it". Or you'll end up with a broken back. You actually have to try it. Try all of them. It's so hard to choose. This one looks nice, but doesn't feel as comfortable. This other one isn't so bad but doesn't quite feel right. And so on, going around trying everything in sight. Feels a bit wrong actually. But in the end you have to choose one. So you just bite your lip and tell them to wrap it or roll it out or whatever.
