Guy Put 'Relationship Saving' Stations In IKEA And We Want Them In Every Store

By Mustafa Gatollari

There's a reason why Liz Lemon was so afraid of going to IKEA with her man in that episode of 30 Rock, and it's because there are few furniture outlets that will test the strength of a relationship as seriously as the Swedish retail giant.

And that's mostly due to the fact that IKEA is a gosh-darned Labyrinth of a store. Seriously, have you been inside one recently? You go inside for a napkin holder and walk out with a Klimpske-Kerfuffle over your head, peaking out the back of your tied-down trunk and a newfound hatred for life. Oh, and your significant other is mumbling to themselves a mile away from the store looking for the nearest bus stop. Because yeah, your relationship's over at that point.

But the low, low prices of pretty much everything at IKEA necessitates that you go there. It's not like you're ever going to stop, you just need to hope that your relationship will be strong enough to withstand the store's insanity.
