Chair-tippers work my nerves. Not only because they distract me as they wobble unsteadily on the back legs of their chair like they’re in some grade school version of Cirque du Soleil, but because I get nervous that they will fall and crack their heads on the tile floors. I only have CPR training, guys. Also, I can use a defibrillator, I know the Heimlich, and I’m massively dramatic, and none of those will help a kid with a head injury. I warn kids, I tell them they will be very hurt (though I doubt anyone has ever gone to the ER from falling out of their chair, though I make it seem that way) and then I take their chairs away so they can stand for a bit. Maybe that’ll learn ‘em!
Also, you never feel like more of a mammoth than when you sit in a kindergartener’s chair. Also, a tad ridiculous.
