Trolley rage @Ikea

8 posts in this topic

According to http://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/05/14/trolley_warfare_german_ikea_store/

 

 

Weekend shoppers can now add trolley rage to the list of reasons to avoid their local IKEA store after an altercation in southeastern Germany ended up with a visit to hospital.

 

The fracas in Eching, on the outskirts of Munich, reported in Bavarian local papers Echinger Zeitung and Merkur began with an argument over which trolley had right of way and ended with police being called from nearby Neufahrn.

 

Two women, one aged 49 and another 18, began shouting and, allegedly, shoving each other, presumably after one failed to follow the arrows painted on the floor to the satisfaction of the other.

 

According to reports, which quoted Neufahrn police, the father of the 18-year-old then allegedly got involved. The older woman reportedly fell into a nearby shelf and is said to have injured her head.

 

With each party blaming the other for the incident, Bavarian cops are appealing for witnesses. One individual who apparently saw the whole sorry affair had scarpered before the fuzz arrived, leaving coppers unsure which version of events to believe.

 

Thankfully, it appears that the options of getting stabby with IKEA's stubby pencils or lobbing meatballs in a menacing fashion were not taken up during the Teutonic tantrum.

I thought the main reason to avoid any store at weekends, not just Ikea, is because of the amount of pensioners clogging up the isles.

 

If you exclude Wednesday's, Thursday's and Saturday's from shopping then you can normally get things done in half the time and without hospitalisation.

This happens everywhere sadly, and is not confined to Germany. (see link below)

This man even died! Absolutely terrible!

 

It seems society as a whole is to blame. People are always in a hurry, think only of themselves and there is no respect for one another. Good manners and respect are free after all!
