This Man Who Set Up 'Relationship-Saving Stations' In Ikea Is A Hero

No amount of cinnamon buns can save you from an argument.

With its maze-like layouts and massive crowds, Ikea is notorious as a place where relationships go to die. (At the very least, you and your S.O. are going to get into a mega fight while assembling your brand new Hemnes bed frame.)

Knowing how dangerous a trip to the Swedish superstore can be for couples, comedian Jeff Wysaski recently set up some handy “relationship-saving stations” in the store’s Burbank, California location.

“Shopping can be stressful,” the sign reads. “Here are 5 quick ways to ease tension with a loved one.”

Wysaski said no one noticed him putting the signs up. Probably because they were too busy arguing.

And starring at a photo of a puppy in a cup, as a reminder that joy exists:

Wysaski, who tweeted photos of the hilarious project on Monday, told The Huffington Post that he and his wife have been lucky enough to avoid arguments at Ikea.

“We both agree that getting in and out as fast as possible is the key to success,” he said.
