Sit Down

I think we can all agree that sitting is awesome.

Everything about it is awesome - not supporting any weight, the comfort, the NOT standing part.

Yet, time after I time I offer my seat to someone and they say, "No thanks, I've been sitting all day."

WHAT!

It sounds like you have had an awesome day! Why not continue the awesomeness and sit more? Sitting is not drinking - you won't be hungover tomorrow from sitting too much.

I can't think of a situation where I wouldn't want to sit down. Standing is ok for MAYBE 5 minutes. Like "Hey! We're standing and talking and this is great."

But then I start looking for something to put my arm on to hold me up, then I try to lean on something - around minute 7 I am doing a tripod to avoid standing.

Know what I like to do after a long day of sitting? Sit more. As much as possible. I've never been like - "OH MAN - what a hard day. I am exhausted from all that work - I can't wait to get home and just stand there for awhile. Oh it shall be so relaxing. The standing. I don't even want to lean - just stand and relax - you know, because standing is so relaxing in comparison to the amount of relaxation you get from sitting. Standing rules sitting drools!"

So don't ever tell me that siting is overrated -

I can't stand it.

That's one of the reasons I don't go to church.

Just when you get comfy, they make you stand...then you sit back down...get comfy and then - BAMMO! - they make you kneel.

KNEEL.

Insulting, is what it is.

id never turn a seat down. I enjoy sitting myself.

I had to work in a store one day for work as observation (i work in an office mind you at, a desk) and I think I went on for 2 weeks how happy I was that I decided to go to school to sit on my ass all day.

praise jesus.

I am cool with sitting, but some times you just need to stand and move.

i just got back from a four hour road trip, and guess what? i'm planning on sitting in all the various places in my house today to make up for not sitting in them while i was in the car.

Standing is retarded. Just look at horses and cows, and it's no wonder we make glue and boots out of them. Sitting sucks too! Laying down is the BEST!

Depends on who's doing the sitting a where.

This word verification is for Kristen to work on - reartuff

Sitting is cool and all but sometimes you get that flat butt syndrome or worse the numb butt. Numb butt is scary and makes you look weird when you’re pinching your own ass to get feeling back in there.

I love seating! I never turn down an offer to sit down...especially to sit on...wait, I am not going to make this an x rated comment.

Lying down is even more awesome than sitting down!

I am not a fan of standing. I hate lines.

At 26 years old if it's going to be awhile I park my ass on the floor if it isn't nasty.
