“I went to the worst escape room ever. It’s called IKEA”

The IKEA furniture store can be confusing to many people, who have compared it to leaving an escape room.

Wikipedia: IKEA
IKEA (/aɪˈkiːə/ eye-KEE-ə, Swedish: [ɪˈkêːa]) is a multinational conglomerate, that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture, kitchen appliances and home accessories, among other useful goods and occasionally home services. Founded in Sweden in 1943 by 17-year-old Ingvar Kamprad, IKEA has been the world’s largest furniture retailer since 2008. The brand used by the group is an acronym that consists of the founder’s initials (Ingvar Kamprad), and those of Elmtaryd, the family farm where he was born, and the nearby village Agunnaryd (his hometown in Småland, southern Sweden).
 
Wikipedia: Escape room
An escape room, also known as an escape game, is a game in which a team of players cooperatively discover clues, solve puzzles, and accomplish tasks in one or more rooms in order to progress and accomplish a specific goal in a limited amount of time.[1] The goal is often to escape from the site of the game.

I went to the worst escape room ever.
It’s called IKEA.
Every time I go there, I get lost.
I found a security guard inside IKEA and asked him, “can you help me get out of here?”
He’s like, “I’ve been lost here since Halloween. I’m wearing a costume.”

Went to the worst escape room ever today.
It was called IKEA?
Got super lost, but luckily bumped into an employee, and when I asked for directions he said; “I don’t work here, I’ve been lost here since Halloween, I’m wearing a costume.”
