5 ways to go to IKEA and leave with your relationship intact

A trip to IKEA guarantees several things. 1) You'll come away chuffed as you like that you've picked up a brand new bookcase/sofabed for very little money indeed. 2) You'll come away chuffed as you like/confused that you've bought several things you definitely weren't planning on buying but that you're quite sure that you almost certainly probably need. 3) You'll argue with your significant other, though you might not be able to pinpoint exactly why or how it started (but it was definitely their fault).


For anyone nodding their heads in agreement with number three, US comedian Jeff Wysaski has built a relationship-saving station at his local IKEA, and they're (not-to-be-taken-too-seriously) ideas that might just save you from heartbreak on your next trip to buy a Billy bookcase.


1. YELL AT A HORSE

See this tiny horse? Yell at it instead of your partner, and, hey presto, no divorce!



2. LOOK AT A PICTURE OF A PUPPY

As Wysaski puts it: "Here is a picture of a dog in a cup. Gaze upon it and remember that there is joy in the world."



3. DRESS UP AS A CARTON OF MILK

Wysaski's theory? It's impossible to argue with someone while wearing a milk carton hat.



4. MAKE LIKE ELSA FROM FROZEN

Use those stupid tiny pencils you find all over IKEA to write down your frustrations and then LET IT GO.



5. BLOW BUBBLES

Adios, problems.
