In the “How Embarrassing” Category: Lawn Chairs. Some lawn chairs are better than others. On the way to speak at a camp a couple summers ago I tried out a beach chair. It wasn’t very high-quality. How do I know, you ask? I tested it. I set it down in the isle of the store and sat down on it. Immediately it collapsed on the floor. I decided I would keep looking for a chair of a little higher quality. They just don’t make lawn furniture like they used to. Quality being what it is these days I would recommend that you always test drive your lawn chair before you buy it. Somewhere someone is going to get a real laugh when they watch that little episode on the security tape.
