Cool.

I think being stuck in an IKEA might be more of a nightmare.
 
2021-12-02 12:07:04 PM  
I hope they all decided to play hide and seek. What else are you gonna do?
 
2021-12-02 12:07:30 PM  
Yeah.  Well, there were 20 people trapped and just before the came out with another batch of meatballs, someone ' wandered off' and probably 'won't be back'.

Twenty entered.  Ten left and they all gained weight.

They were probably just trapped because they couldn't make any sense of the emergency evacuation instructions.

This sounds like the start of some kind of bad survival horror game. "You have found an hexagonal Allen wrench. There are grumblings coming from the darkness"

That's worse for the clean up lady. There's enough toilets that they could have one fresh each.

Busses started running again in the morning, so they could go home.

ABBA played throughout the night on the store's PA system.

They managed to turn it into a commercial already, where the IKEA store chef gets all the customers tucked into the perfect bed for them during the night, all the whilst he's praising their choices and good taste.

Never turn your back on a Breen. Never turn your back on a plate of breen. Both are very good advice.

Kinda surprised that Danes got shut in by 12 inches of snow. Makes me think the government couldn't say for sure if it would be 12 or 36 and issued the SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING order.
