#IKEAfail Is The Only Hashtag You Need To Know About

IKEA is one of those stores that means something different to everyone. It might be the place that helped you furnish your first apartment; or perhaps you see it as a miserable maze to get trapped in on weekends. Despite all this, one thing's for certain: the Swedish superstore does make for some great entertainment.

And if we ever needed proof, we've found it in the hashtag known as IKEAfail. Check out some of our favorite highlights below.

People on Instagram get it.

That awkward moment when the drawers don't fit...

That terrible realization that one's a bar stool and the other's a kiddy chair...

That sinking feeling when the tool gives up before you do...

That painful awareness that even the directions confuse themselves...

That miserable moment when the post-shopping ice cream you bought falls...

And the frustration on Twitter is so real.

That awkward moment when the register line knows you're making a bad investment...

That terrible realization that something's just a little off...

That sinking feeling when the shipping label is trying to warn you...

That painful awareness that even the screws aren't on your side...

That strong regret when you ordered things separately...

That miserable moment when you're not the only one who dropped their post-shopping trip ice cream...
