Better Living

My brother and SIL were there since around 8pm and managed to hang on till just after midnight or so. Apparently the crowd was well behaved until a few queue jumpers triggered mass hysteria. After that it was pretty clear the night could not be salvaged and so they both, quite sensibly, scarpered.

Still, it's a brave person who goes to witness such a hyped event in such a chav locality. These kind of deals just prove to me how crazy we all really are. Ikea should really have known better and although in some ways this may be good publicity, you gotta wonder how much money they'll be losing while their largest branch remains closed.
