Funny: Husband documents forced shopping trip at IKEA with wife
This young man found himself in a situation many spouses will be familiar with: being dragged shopping, in this case to Ikea. And he had no idea why. To entertain himself, he decided to document the secret mission to buy Item X, posting hilarious pictures on Imgur throughout:
"We are here. Our apartment is furnished. I am not sure why we are returning."
"We appear to be here, in part, for lunch."
"I have dropped fruity purple sauce on my pants. As is tradition. It will likely stain. On Facebook, my aunt advises pouring boiling water over the spot. She further advises removing the pants before doing so."
"Perhaps we are here for industrial storage solutions. My wife says, 'Maybe when we have eight kids.' We have zero kids. We move on."
"We are looking at candles. We have many candles. We bought our current candles at IKEA. These are slightly different."
"She has asked for my thoughts on this storage solution. I said, 'We don't have room for it.' This was apparently an incorrect response."
"We seem to be here for a mirror. I begin to recall a conversation where she expressed this need."
"My wife is charmed by the stuffed rats. This does not alarm or surprise me, although I am surprised that the rats feature so prominently in the display. It is a strange marketing choice."
"'Ready?' she asks. I say yes, but I'm not sure what she is referring to."
"I've been busted."
"We are checking out. We have a microwave cover, a sugar bowl, and a drawer divider. We do not have a mirror. 'I want ice cream,' says my wife."
"'I love you forever, even though I already have to,' says my wife. I love her, too."

Anyone who's gone on a three-hour odyssey with their partner through IKEA, only to emerge at last with two packets of tea candles and a hot dog, will understand!
