CHINA – Ikea Doesn’t Really Mind If Its Customers Go On Dates, Vomit And Pass Out In Stores

An elderly Chinese (bottom) women rests

What is it about Ikea that inspires customers to behave badly?

At the furniture and storage company’s flagship mainland China store in Beijing, customers are picnicking, reading newspapers, napping while tucked under the covers, and even urinating, the South China Morning Post recently reported:

~
Toddlers in split pants play on model furniture with their naked parts coming in contact with all surfaces. On a king-size bed in the middle of the largest showroom, a little boy wakes from a nap next to his (also sleeping) grandmother. When the old woman casually helps the boy urinate into an empty water bottle, dripping liquid liberally on the grey mattress under his feet, most passers-by seem not to mind or even notice.

China’s shoppers, analysts said, seem to like a theme park atmosphere and they appreciate the free air-conditioning.

personal thought:

There are MANY Chinese tourists now coming here to Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Awhile back, I was having a buffett lunch (not Chinese), and at the adjoining table there were EIGHT VERY LOUD Chinese.

A kid, I’m guessing three or four had to take a leak, so his mother took him to a nearby potted plant. Note: right above the plant was a sign pointing to the nereby restrooms.

Putting the ‘Chinese problem’ into context: 1.4 billion (1,400,000,000).

The world is F*CKED!
