What Comes After The Standing Workstation? [Comic]

Standing desks are all the rage these days, but what if you get tired of your standing desk? There’s no need to go back to sitting.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    I imagine the middle one is saying, “Look! No hands!”

    Where I used to work as a tech support guy, the quality inspectors, both male and female, HAD to work standing at their inspection table, period. The company wouldn’t allow even pregnant women to sit as this would “establish a precedent”, and corporations HATE establishing precedents. When a pregnant woman couldn’t stand any longer, it was time for maternity leave – unpaid, as I remember, not ever have been pregnant myself. Yes, this was in California – NOT some overseas sweatshop, but a domestic one.

    @ lizbit. If you had my back and feet, you wouldn’t be asking that question.

    This is an inhuman practice, and should be banned. If it were me, I would quit and sue.
