I get tired of the fight. It took a month of arguing just to get a smaller seat cushion.

the other one not let your feet touch the pedals or something?

how many miles on that truck? They might be looking to get rid of it soon.
They come with enormous seat bottoms that are too long when measured from rear pad to knees, so I was losing leg circulation. A shorter pad eliminates that. I finally got one but it took arguing with my boss that they're not all the same (he claimed they were) and finally a trip to the OC to visit an ergonomic specialist supposedly to show me how to adjust the seat correctly. Boss was convinced I didn't know how to adjust the seat. 3 minutes showing the seat to the guy at the OC and he sends an email to my boss saying it needs a new seat. 😏

I'm not afraid to say it, my boss is a prick. Like, a total prick who insists he's right about everything.

Kind of like a mndriver, TBH.

I dunno if yours does or not without it in front of me but ours do have an adjustment that slides the seat bottom in and out from the seat back. I didn't discover for the first while in this truck but when I did it changed my life.

Yeah I showed them that inspite of that, it wasn't enough. It's a two stage and if there was a third it might work.

The seat I use is the same seat my old truck had before they got rid of it and put me in one with the fat people seat. Both seats are aftermarket seats.

Now that I've convinced them there's a need because we're not all built the same (duh) they keep at least one in stock.

My boss is truly retarded to say they're the same seat. They're not even the same color. Mine is grey, the big ones are black, and the OEM is that brownish..

This asshat is so insistent on being right he wouldn't even go outside with me to let me show him the difference, or look at my photos. Instead he wastes my time sending me up to the main operations center in the hopes that they'd tell me I'm wrong.

It sucks when they're so clueless and won't even let you show them different.

It took 2 months to get them to believe my truck needed and alignment. Another month for them to actually do it (they'd claim they did, but didn't touch it). When they finally did it it was only because I stood there and waited and watched.

I am so glad I do not have to deal with those issues.
