{chair squeaks: a paper rant}

  1. This happens to me all of the time. But usually with people I like, so we laugh about it. Why are you going to dinner with people you don't like in the first place? That's an awfully expensive meal, if you ask me. :)

  3. Oh dear! This is the absolute WORST! And you know how red I can turn, even at the smallest, stupidest things, so this is always REALLY embarrassing for me! Sad day.

  4. favorite paper rant ever!

    I'm pretty sure that these chairs are actually "transformer chairs" who just like to play pranks on us.

    Do you think that's likely?

    ;)

  10. The only thing worse than a sound like that happening is when you CANNOT make it happen again on purpose. I totally know this situation! If this unfortunate dinner situation has recently happened to you, I'm sorry..and if not, well good! Oh my, your paper rants are so great.
