Love your chair, for its kindness and support

I’ll admit I don’t know any words to this song, I don’t even really know what it’s about, but I think it has something to do with love. At least that’s what I tell myself since my wife requested this be played as we walked down the aisle to be wed. I mean, she wasn’t going to pick something sad, but this makes me think of a couple of whiney, bitter persons banging on keyboards and sobbing softly into pillows afterwards. I can’t get into this kind of music…there just isn’t any oomph. I prefer music with guitar riffs so chunky I can spread it on potato bread with my Polanar All Fruit, which is definitely not jelly. (That commercial reminds me of every fancy dinner I have ever attended.)

I don’t know the words because a friend played it on a piano when we walked down the aisle, whist wearing a colonial outfit no less. (It was a Halloween wedding.) My wife looking at me saying, “Isn’t this song so pretty?” “Of course dear.” So to this day I don’t know what this song is truly about. I know this was in a movie and the people in the move were in love, but beyond that I am clueless. Maybe they died in the end or were stuck under a boulder for days, only surviving by cutting off each other’s limbs, it doesn’t matter. The point is it’s a love song, and in business you need this kind of song to remind you of the most essential assets a business has and we all love dearly. The bond one has with this piece of business equipment is strong and powerful.

Your chair is your most trusted coworker. You spend the majority of your day her soft folds and have grown close to her. (Mine is a girl, you can choose whatever you like.) A good chair gets you through the day and makes work tolerable. If you doubt this, try going to work and finding your chair missing, or heaven forbid, taken up with another co-worker. You will steal other chairs to get yours back. We love our chairs. We protect them and make sure no one else has relations with them. If you sit in your chair and it’s warm, you scan the room for suspicious eyes. Who violated your bond? Jeremy? Probably, he always wanted a smoother lumbar adjustment since he spilled coffee into his. It’s all gummed up now and not your problem. You will even stand up on the bus or train during your commute because you know; you will be sitting all day. That’s commitment and every good business understands that.

So take a moment and thank your chair for supporting you all day everyday, no matter what.
