Mr. Fix-It

Pop bought me a new executive chair. There was one big problem. It came unassembled. It only took him 20 minutes to figure out how to put the wheels on which was the first step. MOL! I got ready for a long morning.

Can you see the anguish and concern on my face?
I sat on the bed to get the best angle to snoopervise as the bumbling old geezer Pop attempted to assemble the chair. Gasp! The wrench was missing! No, the wrench was found! I watched intently as he tried to make heads or tails of all the hundreds of pieces of chair. Just another piece of fine craftsmanship by the Zhejiang Henglin Chair Industry Company in Zhejiang Province of China. Let's say Pop needed an interpreter to read the instructions. Heh-heh. The anguish and concern is written on my face when Pop screwed up which arm went on which side. Note here that he blamed ME for the misleading information. Thanks, Pop. It was time for a scritching to relieve the tension. Ah, I feel better. At this point, I got bored and left the room. Good luck, Pop, with the rest of the assembly.

I later returned to see how the bumbling old geezer Pop was making out. Not well. Things had gone downhill without my snoopervision. I was now snoopervising from the hall, a safe distance away. Even from this distance, I could hear Pop's foul language and HBO words. He tried in vain to cover them up with laughter. I wasn't buying.

I jumped back on the bed because a spirited game of rockets was in order. I grew concerned when Pop enlisted TW's "help" to connect the back of the chair. Hey, Pop, she's "helping" me right now! Apparently, this was a 3-person job; counting me as snoopervisor. It took slightly over half a day hour. Now who would be brave enough to actually sit on it. Once again, the cat Pop was victorious! I had a new executive chair. There had to be some sort of mistake! This WASN'T an executive chair; it was a regular office chair!

Pop, what's the 411 on this? Pop said the room and desk wasn't big enough for an executive chair. I looked at Pop and then the chair, wondering how long this chair would hold up. I was reminded of that advert from W.B. Mason. I'm sure you've seen the one where the chairs all fall apart. Can we get bets on how long this one will last?

I'm working hard snoopervising Pop assemble the chair. I've got the best seat in the house.

  1. It's a very nice looking chair...but I'd let TW and Pops take it for it's virgin spin. Better safe than sorry.

  6. Oh, that's a very nice-looking chair! Your peeps would never have managed to put it together without your snoopervision. We think that mesh on the back looks really inviting for claws, too.

  12. What should the humans do without our help ?!
    I think the chair looks really nice even if it´s not a executive chair :)

  13. It looks like a nice chair CK. Actually I go through about a chair a year because of back problems. It's a "pain in the neck -- back" You tried to do the right thing by snoopervising - it's an important job. Mario has to keep an eye on us too or we get lazy.

    That is the Keisha from Twitter. She's already at the Bridge. :-(

  15. I have only one question...

    Were there any pieces left over?

    Purrs,

    PS. Leftover pieces are never a good sign.

  18. Hmmmm. The new office chair here was a "no tools needed, assembles in 10 minutes chair". Ha. Took mommy an hour.
    She didn't swear, though.

  19. Great snoopervising CK. I think we could probably use a new executive chair over this way too. If I need help putting one together, maybe your peeps can give me some tips.

  20. I bet it would have taken him a week without your help, CK!!!

  21. Haha, glad Pop managed to assemble the chair :-) Great job snoopervising. I'm sure he couldn't make it without your help! And I hope it won't fall apart when you are using it :-)

  22. I've read them directions before. Something like, "tool wrench into Phillips head slot C please."

  23. We're thinking that chair looks pretty good, and as long as it doesn't fall apart and gets a nice blankie, we bet it will be pretty comfy. We'll wait to hear more about it. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  24. CK, we bet if it wasn't for your snoopervising, that chair would still be in pieces! Definitely make Pop sit in it first to make sure it holds up.

    ReplyDelete
  25. You did a pawsome job. Make him sit in it first though, just in case he messed up :-)

  26. Thanks so much for lettin' me know 'bout that inappropriate ad on my blog, my friend. I've notified Blogger that if it should happen again, I will drop out of the Blogger AdSense program immediately. This is the second time... that I know of! The ads I see are different from those cats see in other places so I don't even know it's goin' on unless someone tells me. Thanks so much for lettin' me know. I really appreciate it a lot.

    Purrs,
    Nissy

  27. I notice you are too leery of Pop's DIY skills to be testing out the chair, CK. Probably a wise decision. Kinda like: Who is gonna be brave enough to be first to drive across the Bay Bridge with its "snapping-bolts-that-are-no-problem-at-all-really" next Tuesday morning. Hint: It will not be the Human.
