I HATE Ikea!

I went to Ikea for the very first time over a month ago, in Newark, NJ.

I felt like a pig feeding at a trough. Thousands of people running around trying to find bargain furniture that only lasts a year before it begins to fall apart and without any sense of direction or order, all of them running around carrying those stupid yellow bags. Meanwhile, customer service people who are utterly useless and often unfriendly are sitting around probably thinking that they have better things to do than be at their shitty barely-above minimum wage jobs. Follow that with the fact that at the end of my rampant shopping spree, I must wait in line for nearly an hour in the check-out line just to get to the cash register.

All the while, I'm supposed to think that Ikea is some great SAVIOR from the heavens because it allows me to have lots of home supplies and furniture at basement bargain prices so that I can be a 'self-made man' and build my own bed/bookshelf or what-have-you like a pathetic loser.

It's amazing how stupid everyone is. I never felt more like a pathetic little rat as when I was at Ikea--it's even worse than Walmart. It's amazing how desperate people are to save a buck, they even sacrifice their dignity. We have no standards at all anymore, we should be ashamed.

Here's what I'll take: I'll go to my neighborhood furniture store, where a salesperson who's actually interested in speaking to me and spending time with me, can help me find what suits my needs. Then, I'll bargain a price for what I want and have it delivered, already assembled, to my residence. Sure it costs more than Ikea but it's worth every goddamn little penny, trust me

You're a dope.

It's called "free market".

People can choose where they want to spend their money.

People are "desparate" to save money because they have LITTLE FREAKIN' MONEY to spend!!

and yes, you are a pathetic little rat.

Amen. Never understood, why they are complaining,no one, forced them to buy there. If I walked in and saw that kind of cluster @#uck, I'd just turn around and walk out.

Just went to Ikea for the first time yesterday.. Never again!
Lowest concievable quality, ridiculous prices.
It's the same pressboard and cam-lock screw crap as Wal-Mart or Target, but with no service (even less than Wal-Mart? yes, it's quite a challenge but Ikea succeeds) and double the prices or more. But you ARE gettng screwed European style, so you should feel etter about it.
Pay a bit more and get something that wil last you a lifetime instead of two years. If you can't aford a bit more, check your local antiques stores or Craigslist. Or an estate sale. Many times, they just want someone who is willing to move a bigger item like a bookshelf or dining room set.
There are people who pass n and leave really nice sets with no heirs willing to bring a truck from wherever to come get the stuff. I have picked up a lot of good items that way. You can too.
Don't waste your time and your money on trash that won't last.

Why buy when you can steal from the white man. Save wasting your money on that for stuff that really matters like blunts, bling, 40oz, and Air Jordans.

Good, what time do you want us over to clear out your home? Not that we'd find anything good or expensive. What we dont want or need we'll just sell on Craigslist.

I agree with you. If you are forced to buy from ikea or any other sure you can also choose ti use other small,businesses to deliver and/or assemble your furniture. Saving money is important, but saving time and frustration is priceless.

If you want bargain prices, then IKEA has it. But a lot and I mean a lot of people will go for a bargain. Yes IKEA has products that you could assemble yourself but you cannot expect these to last long. I think it would be better to invest in the more expensive but reliable furniture and get experts like those from http://www.americandirectlogistics.com set it up for you and enjoy your furniture stress-free and without having stress from all the crazy bargain-looking crowd from stores like IKEA.

I am sure that nothing would make PP happier than finding your ignorant, high, stealing rear end creeping through his house in the middle of the night so that he can get some actual use of his firearms. I know that I would feel the same way.
