Okay, this one is just a quick rant. Let me just say, Do Not Use Your Chairs as Step Stools, Ladders, Jungle Gyms, etc. Seriously. One of my nephews apparently saw fit to use Grandpas chair to stand on while getting something down in the garage. This would have been fine had he only stood in the seat, however, standing on the arm rest is not a good idea. As the name implies, they are to rest your arms on while you sit down, or maybe set a drink on. They are not made to stand on or sit on. Just so you know right up front, I will not warranty this kind of damage, and odds are, you might fall and hurt yourself. Do Not Sit or Stand on the Arm Rests of Your Chairs or Benches.
