Now, this was not the best office chair in the world and the foam rubber arm rest which I was able to carefully baby at work after it cracked was not likely to survive contact with a two year old. I tried gluing it back together a few times, but it just wasn't working and the exposed metal was actively dangerous to two year olds. And with the prospect of working at home in the future, I decided that it was time to get a new chair.
After far too much entertainment with the folks at Staples.com, I went back to the store and bought their floor sample, since the website wanted to charge me $50 more than the store claimed the chair cost.
Easy button? Not so much.
But I like the chair. :)
