Noisy IKEA Assembly Prompts Police Call
If you have trouble assembling IKEA furniture, you’re not alone.
The Swedish company is known for designing and selling ready-to-assemble furniture, but not everyone is cut out for the process, including couples in Sweden!
According to The Huffington Post, police officers were reportedly called to address a domestic disturbance. Instead, they found the commotion was caused by a couple putting together IKEA furniture.
The assembly process reportedly woke up the family’s young child around 1:00 a.m. Frightened neighbors called police and reported loud “banging” and “crying.”
The customers aren’t the first to struggle with the company’s instructional diagrams. The Huffington Post reports IKEA began posting upbeat musical instructional videos online in 2012, an attempt many critics say was an effort to compensate for the difficult instructions.
