Tuesday Expert Advice

Dear Cupcake,

Do you think the people responsible for the layout at IKEA were going for a feeling that mimicked the terrifying maze scene in The Shining or did they simply want to create a gargantuan public place where couples could go and get infuriated with one another in front of onlookers---kind of like a giant Argument Zoo?

Dear Need,
Good luck,

Apparently the same people decided to have "Free Day at the Denver Zoo" today - geesh, I need a martini after that.

I discovered this weekend that Ikea is apparently designed so that sounds travels as far as acoustically possible. That way, every customer will be sure to hear all 4213 children who are screeching at the top of their lungs that they want to go home.

Does Ikea have a play center for children? Why don't people use it???

Glad I didn't use that connection to get a job, oye vey.

The giant furniture superstore near me has a miniature Fenway Park, a trapeze school, and to top it off, a jellybean and ice cream emporium.

Or as I like to refer to it, the gateway to hell.

Dear Cousin!

My last trauma at Ikea was after almost 2 hours of shopping, get lost, getting enraged, getting thirsty, then getting enraged again, I finally found the check out counter, where I proceeded to leave my cart full of crap and just walked away! Just got in the car, sweating, needing to pee and more enrgaged then ever. I am sure I am not allowed back in Ikea's in North America.. Have you asked your husband wtf is wrong with the Swedes? No wonder they have such a high suicide rate!
Kiss my arse Ikea.

IKEA can eat poop as far as I'm concerned. Don't even say "AS IS" in my presence. EVER!
