The trials and tribulations of office chairs
From XKCD (click the image to see a larger version at the comic strip's Web site):
This brought back many horrible memories! I've run into so many office chairs that are awkward and difficult to adjust, and none of their controls seem to work in the same way from chair to chair. Push this thingumajig in one chair and it raises it; in another, it lowers it. Pull that doohickey in this chair, it reclines; in that chair, it locks solid.
Why can't manufacturers adopt a relatively sane set of operations for desk chairs, and standardize on them?
