Tips For Navigating Ikea

Going to Ikea is one of the worst experiences of my life. I chose the one in Burbank one Saturday to buy a dresser. Sure, I found a nice, inexpensive place to put some clothes, but I had to endure three hours of torture to do so.

Ikea is not for the faint of heart. In fact, it’s seemingly only for idiots — all the idiots in your town. They gather there and plot against you, trying to figure out the best way to ruin your day, impede your progress and generally foul up everything that is good and right.

On my visit, I found myself trapped behind the roving horde of slow walkers, which ranks highly among my worst nightmares.

This is why I have only been to Ikea once and will never go again. However, if you’re looking for a challenge or are just a glutton for punishment, you may find this map and these tips helpful.
