Free back-shave with every SDMB post!

All the lovely reviews and sites offering Herman Miller’s Aeron chair left out one little thing. It’s not only a chair, it’s a giant back safety-razor!

This is my chair at home. See the bar across and behind the mesh back, low down (the lumbar support)? After a month of pretty steady use, the top of that bar has a thick coat of dust/lint/whatever. It certainly was clean a month ago when I installed it.

I can only conclude that everytime I sit in it and shift my back around, the fine mesh of the chair is shaving off fiber from my shirts or skin/hair from my back. I don’t feel any pain or pinching, nor do I feel any tug of resistance as I rise from it.

Who’d a thunk? Ladies, do you go for a nice, smooth shaven back on a guy?

Yikes!!! My first thought was “sliced ham”.
Second was “severe case of waffle butt” (would get that from mom’s lawn chairs with the strapped webbing).


As long as you don’t shave out the logo of a sports team or commercial enterprise (Nike, et al).

That is totally inacceptable. The wear on your clothes will undoubtedly prove to be quite unattractive, and therefore expensive, in just a few short weeks from now.

The only reasonable alternative I see you having is to get rid of that chair. Being the great altruist that I am, I’ll be glad to take it off your hands for you.

Are you kidding? A whole 'nother class of women may now consider dating me. Plus, I plan to sit in some, shall we say, unusual postures to shave OTHER bits. That should really put me on the market!

And if the woman thing doesn’t work out, I have backup plans: spokesmodel for Gillette Good News razors, Epilady, and Nads. I gotta pay for this chair somehow.

Take a look at the top of your thighs, to the left and the right of your gonads… Is there also a hairless area caused by the constant carriage of Wallet & Keys?

Hmmm. Mankind is being sculpted by the environment he created.

Presuming you mean the upper backs of my thighs, where my wallet resides: I haven’t stared at my butt in a mirror recently, so I don’t know. It would be difficult to assess, because I don’t really have a sense of my baseline butt hairyness.

However, I am nearly clean shaven on the outsides of my calves, due (I presume) to constant abrasion against my pants legs.

I didn’t consider those daring enough to carry their wallets in the back of their pants… hmmm, I needn’t imagine a Doper looking for bald patches on his arse. Better take a polaroid and leave it on the street…

Good god people! Stay Away!
We have nine of those chairs at work and not one, not ONE, is unbroken. Between the back thingie falling off, the arms not adjusting correctly, the reclining function not working, and the plastic on the seat just plain snapping off, these chairs are not good! Beware! Beware the devil chairs!!!
