When to consider making changes

Have you ever wondered why you sometimes see recommended weight limits on camping chairs and certain types of lawn furniture? Well, it's because some of it is plainly built like crap. Others though, like the new patio chairs we purchased a mere two weeks ago, wrought iron rocking patio chairs, are meant to withstand some abuse.

Apparently not the girthy girth of a certain friend of the wife. I noticed it reclining abnormally far backwards as she incessantly rocked it, placing her full and exceedingly high weight where a normal sized person wouldn't have had problems.

I am not going to get all 'weightist' here but if you bend wrought iron chairs, it may be well past time to consider some lifestyle changes. With the help of an in-law, I was able to repair the damage but I think that her friend shall now be relegated to sitting on the concrete steps the next time she visits.

And just how are you going to (politely) ask her to sit on a concrete step?
Maybe you can direct her to the already damaged chair?
Good luck!

I am not above telling someone something that they have already vocally and repeatedly professed ("I need to lose wiight") although a bent wrought iron chair is one helluva visual.

Does this friend read this blog?

Not likely but I am not worried either way.

We have the same iron chairs and one guy bent it all the way back to where it was unusable. Now we make him use it.
