    "I once tried to sit on this when my boss isn't around because I wasn't able to test it out when we bought office depot chairs. This is too comfortable and the seamless shift is amazing. I don't think my monster boss deserves to sit on it, tho. He's too bossy and demanding he only deserves to sit on a monoblock chair. πŸ˜πŸ‘ΏπŸ˜ˆ"
