People camping out for Ikea opening

Apparently there are people lined up and camping outside of the new Ikea store here in Colorado in anticipation of the grand opening.

Look, I get it, Ikea coming to town is exciting – I’ve been waiting for years for this to happen. But seriously, camping out two days before the opening?!? What is the point?

Don’t these people have jobs? And, if they don’t, what the hell are they doing at Ikea? They won’t be able to buy anything.

I’m a card carrying shopoholic but I have way better things to do than camp out in front of an Ikea in anticipation of opening day. Furthermore, while I’m downright giddy over the fact that we’ll have an Ikea – I have little post-it flags littering the pages of my latest Ikea catalog – I will be NOWHERE near that place for the first couple of weeks. The hoards of rude, unconscious people paying no attention to anyone else on the planet but themselves and their herds of unruly kids running around like wild animals does not sound like fun times to me.

No thank you very much. I will wait till things calm down.
