It seemed that a few days earlier, Clausen had been visited in his official Park Commission office by a man named Oscar F. Spate. Spate seemed amiable enough, and he offered Clausen a proposition Clausen saw no difficulty in accepting. It seemed that Spate said he wanted to place comfortable rocking chairs in the parks throughout New York City. And for the privilege of doing so, Spate offered the city the tidy sum of $500 a year.
Office chairs look as if they'd be easy to buy and use. I guess I've shown that to not be the case. I have bought what I thought were executive chairs, reception chairs, fabric chairs, leatherette chairs, chairs with arms and chairs without, a sitting ball, and I've even bought ergonomic chairs.
After about four years of making do I broke down and bought a chair at one of those big box office stores. A high-back office chair looked so professional that I went with that style. I couldn't afford a leather chair like my dad had, so I went with a fabric-covered chair. I thought I'd really improved my seating arrangement. I had softened the seat, but I wasn't any more comfortable than I had been before. Sure I now had a swivel chair -- unlike any of my dining room chairs that I'd used, but the first one just didn't fit me. I have now been through more chairs I could almost start my own office chair store!
