There are so many reasons to love — and hate — the Scandinavian furniture store we all know as IKEA. The labyrinth of low cost goods found within is reason enough to spend a good six hours filling up your cart with things you don't need, even if this exhausting activity gets in the way of your relationship. Come on, you know what we're talking about. It's no secret that the big box store is where relationships go to die. You and your partner end up fighting about anything from the size of drawers in a wardrobe to the overall "aesthetic" you're trying to achieve, ultimately resulting in a very quiet, very awkward ride home. It's ok, we've all been there.
Luckily, one artist from California is here to save the DIY furniture day. Jeff Wysaski came up with a genius plan to end all IKEA couple fights for good — with a comical "Relationship Saving Station." Here, bickering duos can take a few minutes to chill out and, GASP, maybe even laugh. The station features five fun activities including yelling at a tiny horse, gazing upon a pup in a cup, writing down why you're upset and letting it go a la Elsa from Frozen, putting a horrendous looking Milk carton on your head, and blowing bubbles, natch.
Since posting the photos of this magical creation to his Facebook page, Wysaski has garnered more than 2,700 shares and loads of comments that sympathize with its cause. One commenter hilariously wrote, "You need some IKEA names for those, like "Yellähors," while another wrote, "This is actually a very healthy way of resolving fights; why scream at each other when you can wear stupid hats and scream at tiny horses TOGETHER?"
But all hilarity aside, there IS (somehow) a downside to this story, one being the fact that this station is only located in Burbank, California's IKEA. The second being that even after a couple gets a good laugh whilst perusing affordable furniture, there's no guarantee that a fight won't erupt later on when the actual assembly begins at home. Womp, womp. Maybe IKEA will create a take-home package of their own once they get wind of this? For all of our sakes, we hope so.
