I'm thinking two days away from Bacefook and my mood is much better.

More rudeness in the last couple yrs on forums since 2005 when I first started, or it's probably more the forums....don't know BUT.......

And wonder if all the rude people also kick animals and hit children or just like to pick on older ladies????

I finally decided this is real, and I should settle in. Bought a new desk chair after 6 months in the old shitty one left me all stiff and creaking with an ache in my knee.

A used Herman Miller Aeon classic.

Yeah, it was pricey. If I didn't have to work, I could have shopped around locally during the work week to try to find a bargain in person.

I knew I wanted this particular chair, because I have had the same model at work for years and it just fits me. And a fucked up knee would be more expensive than a chair.

The big factor is my wife urged me to pull the trigger.

I often buy the cheap thing, and it works just fine. But often, the cheap thing, like my old chair, winds up being a total waste of money, and I have to go out and buy the expensive thing to replace the cheap thing I wasted my money on. I wish I could identify the cheap worthless things from the cheap and good enough things when I make the purchase.

Quality and value can be hard to spot and their connection to price even harder.
Clothing, furniture, vehicles and especially tools usually turn out to better bought trying to recognize when pricier means worth.
Two or three failed wrenches, e.g., cost a bunch more than one good one.

yep, but that Harbor Freight $40 wet tile saw worked just fine for the bathroom I did, and I didn't need to buy the $300 tile saw.

You might think that a $50 chair is a simpler item and not as hard to screw up, but the $500 chair is the better deal. I fully expect to have this chair for the rest of my life, and that $50 chair is going out in the trash, even though it's in good shape.

Tires, shoes helmets. buy the best. For tools, it depends on how much you'll use it. I still have the claw hammer I bought when I was 18. One new handle in 32 years. still smashes things. I also have a bench grinder that was $25 at a hardware store. I use it maybe once a year to sharpen mower blades....



You spend over 2000 hours in a chair a year. get a good one. Mattresses too.
