You need to unweigh yourself in order to raise the seat. It cannot rise with weight on it.

(the grammar police may say I should have said rise instead of raise.)

A stool is an inanimate object; it cannot raise something. A correct sentence would be, "...my stool could be better if I could raise it while sitting on it."

You couldn't substitute "rise" in there, so "raise" is correct

I have an office chair that I can raise or lower (see what I did there? ) If you can lift yourself up while pressing the lever to engage the mechanism, you should be able to raise the stool while holding yourself just above it. HTH.

Thanks for your help there GG...

The trouble there is I have these short stubby legs that belong on someone a foot shorter than me. I'm 5'8".

How tall would Kayelle be if her legs weren't short?

Taxi, my guess is I'd be 6 foot with the right legs. Steve and I sit at the same height and he's 6 foot. Who ever heard of a 5'8" woman having to buy short pants? Sigh, I've always wanted long dancer's legs, but as long as they still work, I count my blessings.

What is it about the length of lady's pants? I have long legs for my 5'4". When I am my right weight, all trousers have legs that are too long. When I'm overweight, I find trousers that are the right length.

Stirling is 6 feet tall. We have the same inseam in jeans.
