IKEA - Furniture Warehouse or Creche ?

We went to IKEA yesterday to buy a mirror. It was an unforgettable experience and one that we don't want to repeat too often. You see, it seems to me that IKEA is the place that mums and dads bring their bored and unruly kids so that they can run amok. All those little trainers covered in dirt climbing all over the leather furniture, over the nice clean bed linen. All those grubby little hands in amongst the kitchen ware, loads of stuff scattered over the floor where it was dropped in front of mum and dads eyes and who just walk off as if it was not their little darlings who threw it there. If you can't get the picture think of a household store version of TK MAXX.. o.k.

Having experienced this horrendous situation I think I would rather shop in John Lewis where you pay more for a quality item amongst more upmarket clientele. God knows what these kids will be like as teenagers, although we can guess can't we. Lack of manners, lack of respect for people and their property and lack of parental supervision leads to a potential ASBO. I will say no more.

There is a lot to be said for mail order isn't there.
