Have you ever sat on a chair and broke it? Were you overweight at the time, or did the chair just fail?

My story isn't about me. It's about a high school student I had in class at one time. He was a boy who seldom came to school, and he never said much. He was severely overweight. He was in my reading group. We were all sitting around a table working on our reading when he went crashing to the floor. The chair lay in several pieces, and the boy looked like he wished he could fall through the floor. I tried to make light of the situation by reminding the students that this wasn't the first one of the old chairs that had fallen apart. However, kids will be kids, and a lot of furtive smirking continued. That poor boy left class that day and never returned to school.

My goodness would you blame him. I would have been on the floor. I have the hardest time holding in a laugh. My mom has always hated this. She say ( girl one day somebody is going to beat your azz) I tell her I can not bea assaulted for laughing. and If tthey did I would lay on the floor. And press full charges.

I personally have never sat in a chair that has broken under me thankfully but once when we were out, we were offered these really flimsy chairs to sit on. We chose to stand and when one of them broke under someone else, I was oh so thankful I had spared myself that embarrassment. :)

Yes. One was an old office chair that was occupied by me and a larger kid when I was a kid. The others were plastic stools. The really low kind.

I've never broken a chair but I've seen people who have and I've seen it happen. It's actually pretty funny. I saw this one guy (huge, not fat but just very tall and very muscular) sit into this ITTY-BITTY chair and it just collapsed under him. It was really funny.

Nope, I've never broken a chair. I'm innocent of all counts, and genuinely this time.
