Go to IKEA, I was socked by all kinds of sleeping postures on each bed and each sofa, deeply deeply shocked!  0 to 80 years old, are all so indulged in sleeping! Beds without someone sleeping on them were all a mess.  Daycare center does not require store receipt to pick up their child.  People are so clever! My husband said, we have to wait till after our generation all die first, then we can talk about quality (of people).  Ay ~ daughter, it is up your guys now!  IKEA, I am really impressed by your tolerance!

This blog post showed some pictures form Ikea in Beijing:

北京人已經用行動表達「宜家是咱家」,是咱們安睡的好地方。

Beijing people already use their action to express “IKEA is our home”, it is good place for a peaceful nap.

    Breaking News

  4. Bent says:

    Well, what would happen if you vent to bed where there already was a person sleeping. Would they mind.
    I could imagine if there was a beautiful woman in the bed, it would be an invitation ?

    Peasants ROFL

  8. Jazz-on says:

    Chinese people have no manners.

  9. WaiDiRenGoHome says:

    Chinese people care so much about “losing face” but with their peasant-level education they have no idea what an embarrassment they are for the rest of the country since everyone around them are peasants too. For the sake of the country, can all the peasants please leave Beijing and Shanghai? The world is watching.

    Ikea knows better than to shoo away these peasants. They’ll burn the place down, if they’re offended. Look at what they did at the Apple Store.

    • got to say something says:

      i was in guangzhou in 2009 – 2010, it was my first time in an IKEA in China and it was just like the pictures above, i remember it was summer time and a bunch of chinese people rolled up in IKEA just sitting around,

      they werent even buying the hot dog because it was 5RMB, and they definitely were not shopping for furniture because it proves too expensive for them

      its not just IKEA that they loiter at, on any given street, you see people just sitting or standing around with no business there, its simply too much people in china

    Nothing a blowhorn can’t fix.

  11. I need weed to survive china says:

    The Chinese = Peasants

  12. Sweetvoice says:

    The Chinese need to be taught respect for public properties and ettiquette.

  13. Sunny says:

    Don’t take it so serious. They might just wanna test those furniture’s quality.

  14. Wolfbella says:

    These people are not peasants; they are alrgely wealthy and have money to waste. But the truth is that these people in IKEA are all uncivilized. The failure of Chinese education and breakdown of better manners.

  15. Dumbo Tin says:

    Another reason why people look down at Chinese.
    Very SAD.

  16. Mai says:

    It’s amazing to visit this web site and reading the views
    of all friends concerning this paragraph, while I am also eager of getting familiarity.

  17. I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog.

    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice
    blog like this one nowadays.
