The Church of Ikea

Monday, 3 September 2007

Yup, that's where we spent our Saturday--along with half of the Klang Valley, and their extended families from outstation on account of it being the Merdeka weekend. We wanted to get the treasure box thing to keep Brandon's ever growing pile of toys in, so we turned up at Ikea just after 9am to get some breakfast before the store opened.

For the first time ever, we got a space in the family parking lot! There was plenty of room on either side to load up the car seat, sort out the stroller and boy what a nice change not to have to squeeze in between cars to get to the lobby area. So feeling chuffed and very pleased, we headed off upstairs to shop.

CheekyAnd here's what we saw just when we were pulling out of our family parking lot. Ikea's trying to instill some noble values through its products and services, like being family-friendly and caring for the environment. But like every religion, you can't count on your devotees to be shining examples of your teachings all the time I suppose...

Mr WPA 5826, I hope you're going to brush up on civic-mindedness. We know that you're proud of all the little corners that you can squeeze your Kancil into, but please don't put your fellow drivers in a bad light.

That reminds me of a story my aunt was telling me about how some people (without disability tags) also park in the spots reserved for the disabled. So she left a big note on the windshield that said, “Which part of you disabled? The BRAIN?” Hee.

The only thing Ikea should instill in this noob is a nice big yellow clamp on the front wheel. And a knee to the groin. Metaphorically speaking, of course. Maybe.
