Ikea Employees Share the Worst Family Meltdowns They’ve Ever Witnessed


IKEA may seem like a place where people go to innocently shop for furniture and home goods — but think again. Some people joke that the word “IKEA” is Swedish for "divorce" because of the number of fights and meltdowns that occur in the store between couples. It doesn’t end there, though. Whole families have been known to get into it while navigating the labyrinthine paths leading through IKEA stores.

These hilarious stories of IKEA meltdowns are the real deal, and they might make you think twice before braving one of these furniture warehouses with another person. Need a new LACK table or BRYGGJA dresser? Perhaps it’s best just to go alone.
