Re: How to survive Ikea: 10 dos and don'ts
There are fun things you can do in IKEA too to help beat the boredom.
You can take those fake tacky books out of the bookshelf and hand them out to people, telling them "read this, it will change your life".
You can also randomly load stuff onto your shopping cart and then dump it somewhere else. For example one box on every step of the escalator.
Strangely, my OH is no longer as keen as she used to be on me joining her on IKEA trips. I can't think why.
