Folding Chairs

Is a chair still a chair if nobody is sitting in it? Philosophers have debated that question for centuries. One thing they all agree is that an unused chair is useless because nobody is using it. But no one did anything about it until some guy invented folding chairs. Now an empty chair can be folded up and stuck in the closet until the next time you have people over. Folding chairs will never replace stationary chairs, but there’s no denying their practicality. I can’t think of anything witty to say about folding chairs. Ummm, how about this one: folding chairs seem to be the weapon of choice for professional wrestlers. That’s kind of decent. I wish more folding chairs had armrests. People like portable seating, but elbow support is nice too.

Fighting for the Armrest

Humans are very territorial creatures. We put white picket fences around our lawn and yell at little kids for stepping on the grass.  There are very few situations as awkward as fighting for the armrest with a complete stranger. You want to arrive to your seat first on the plane or at the movie theater so you can establish control of an armrest and preferably both of them. You need your elbow support. It sucks when you get to your seat a little late and both armrests are occupied. You have to wait until someone moves his arm and you can casually but quickly sneak your arm onto the rest. It’s yours now. He didn’t call dibs.
