It confounds me to find people shopping at Ikea like they shop for groceries at the supermarket. And it's not them buying couches, desks, shelves or any other big items (i.e. stuff that requires you to use the furniture trolley or a forklift for that matter) either. Seriously, folks. If you want to shop for items such as chopping boards, clothes hangers, AA batteries, etc. you'd really be better off at either Carrefour, Giant or Tesco. Not only they're cheaper, you can pronounce their names properly too. There are some of us who would really like to get in and out of Ikea without having to do a stakeout at the carpark stalking people going back to their cars and then having to wait for your credit card to clear for that RM31.80 purchase that you're making, y'know.

Tsk tsk. You don't understand, DJ. The
shopping experience is a beautiful thing. Yes, I
know, purposeless wandering and unnecessary
traffic-building is irritating. Just avoid the stress
and go in first thing monday morning. C

mamasan: i was hoping ikea would have a couple of express checkout counters actually. but then again, it may not be "ergonomic" in their sense. it would be cool to have a drive thru counter though. imagine:

customer: "i'd like a flarke table and a couple of those kubbo lamps, please?"
attendant: "very good, sir. we're also having some specials on our swedish meatballs. would you like those to go with your order?"
customer: "sweet!"

Apparently they have drive through
supermarkets in Japan. Get your pampers and
noodles all at the same time without ever
leaving your car. No fun at all!
