You're English is horrible.
I would be more forgiving if I were you with folks from other nation where English is not their first language. If they do make mistakes, so what?
But to us it is rude to point your finger at them.

But for one like you or me where English is our lingua franca then perhaps there are is a justification to your annoyance.

Would you like to try communicating with her in Mandarin or Putonghua or perhaps correcting your own sentence "You're English is horrible" which should be "Your English is horrible." instead.

No, dummy. Do not confuse stupid Chinese Communist Party propaganda lies with the real world. In CCP propaganda, the party is god-like and all-powerful, but in the real world it is a lying, corrupt Stalinist dictatorship!

IKEA's ownership?

Here, from wiki, a site your CCP owners block in China:

IKEA is owned and operated by a complicated array of not-for-profit and for-profit corporations. The corporate structure is divided into two main parts: operations and franchising. Most of IKEA's operations, including the management of the majority of its stores, the design and manufacture of its furniture, and purchasing and supply functions are overseen by INGKA Holding, a private, for-profit Dutch company. Of the IKEA stores in 36 countries, 301 are run by the INGKA Holding. The remaining 47 stores are run by franchisees outside of the INGKA Holding, with the exception of IKEA Delft which is not franchised.[45]
INGKA Holding is not an independent company, but is wholly owned by the Stichting Ingka Foundation, which Kamprad established in 1982 in the Netherlands as a tax-exempt, not-for-profit foundation. The Ingka Foundation is controlled by a five-member executive committee that is chaired by Kamprad and includes his wife and attorney.[46]
While most IKEA stores operate under the direct purview of Ingka Holding and the Ingka Foundation, the IKEA trademark and concept is owned by an entirely separate Dutch company Inter IKEA Systems. Every IKEA store, including those run by Ingka Holding, pays a franchise fee of 3% of revenue to Inter IKEA Systems. The ownership of Inter IKEA Systems is exceedingly complicated and not publicly known. Inter IKEA Systems is owned by Inter IKEA Holding, a company registered in Luxembourg. Inter IKEA Holding, in turn, belongs to an identically named company in the former Netherlands Antilles that is run by a trust company based in Curaçao.[46] In 2009 the company in Curaçao was liquidated and the company responsible for this liquidation traces back to the Interogo Foundation in Liechtenstein[47] Ingvar Kamprad has confirmed that this foundation owns Inter IKEA Holding S.A. in Luxembourg and is controlled by the Kamprad family.[48] The IKEA food concessions that operate in IKEA stores are still directly owned by the Kamprad family and represent a major part of the family's income.[citation needed]
In Australia, IKEA is operated by two companies. Stores located on the East Coast including Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria are owned by INGKA Holding. Stores elsewhere in the country including South Australia and Western Australia are owned by Cebas Pty Ltd.[49] Like elsewhere, all stores are operated under a franchise agreement with Inter IKEA Systems.[50]
In June 2013, Ingvar Kamprad resigned from the board of Inter IKEA Holding SA and his youngest son Mathias Kamprad replaced Per Ludvigsson as the chairman of the holding company. Following his decision to step down, the 87-year-old founder explained, "I see this as a good time for me to leave the board of Inter IKEA Group. By that we are also taking another step in the generation shift that has been ongoing for some years." Mathias and his two older brothers, who also have leadership roles at IKEA, work on the corporation's overall vision and long-term strategy.[51]

^Not "all" of wiki is blocked, is it?

Just the FACTS about China are blocked, eh?

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

When I lived in mainland China everything on the net but fluff, sports, and shopping was blocked!

The TV stations from Hong Kong went to a picture of a frozen lake with classical music playing, every time the news was on, in a crude and obvious censorship of the facts about the world!

Have YOU ever been to China?

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
