That’s crazy. 200 isn’t THAT much, especially for a guy.

Ugh I would not give him a special chair. That’s worse than the possibility of a chair breaking.

I would ask the rental place what they usually do. Is the 200 lb weight limit just a precaution or is it constantly a problem?

@Blush_and_Bashful:  As a heftier gal myself, there is an art to sitting on those horrible chairs. It’s called “not relaxing” and being ever on guard for creaking sounds. WTF!

Maybe you and your sweetie can sit on a chair together, give it a good whomp, and see what happens. Not very scientific but perhaps your own sanity check will help allay your fears.

That is kind of ridiculous- lots of guys are that big without being overweight.
