Nice, cheap furniture or the worst, most depressing shop, possibly in the past and future history of the human species ?
My room at parents house is like Ikea mania, in uni is like random antique mania... Best of both worlds innit.
I spent three hours in there last night.
I ended up pushing myself around on a trolley and jumping around the big shelves because i was so bored.
I just mess around in the kids section for ages then whizz round the rest.
Im not going to your ikea.
but you do get accused of being a cheapskate if you say you got it from ikea to someone who reckons they got their table at an antique fair for a squillion quid
but some people take the shop seriously.
Here's a poem about it.
simply becuase it's populated by cunty office workers, aged 25-35, who just started being serious about relationships and the future yet still think that they're young. The men have ridiculous haircuts, designer glasses and spend all their money on gadgets. The Women are just plaing wankers.
and its nothing to feel proud about, but its reasonable quality stuff at very good prices, just a little characterless.
its great to havce it as an option.
is the most depressing experience, ever.
You follow the little arrows around while they show you their entire catalogue with their stupid displays with words like "contemporary" and "lifestyle" and they make you feel so unstylish and horrible whilst managing to make you want to give them all your money at the same time.
i just go in, knowing what i want, pick it up and am out in 30 mins, depending on queues.
are you going with your parents?
I wouldent go otherwise...
I'll get me coat...
i live on my dad's sofa.
