IKEA is known for their budget friendly, minimalist style furniture. They are also known for getting some of the best customer complaints!
Meet Claus Jørstad, a Norwegian customer who recently purchased a MARIUS stool from his local IKEA so that he could sit down and shower following a knee injury.
Sadly, Claus suffered an additional injury at the hand of the stool.
While sitting and trying to bathe using his newly purchased stool, his testicles became entrapped in the stool’s hole details and he was in a serious pickle.
The Daily Mail translated his complaint about the incident on IKEA Norway’s public Facebook page as him referring to his balls as “down there,” and “the skipper and two sailors.”
He goes on to describe his experience by stating, “I was sitting there and I bent down to see what the f**k happened, I realized the little nutter got stuck.”
In his hilarious post complete with pictures and updates, Mr Jørstad described his genitals as the ‘skipper and two sailors’ because he said Swedes did not like direct descriptions of genitals.
‘As you can imagine, the skipper is the captain down there, and the sailors are the two nuts that dangle,’ he wrote.
In his post to Ikea, he described himself as a ‘free man again!’ and asked if the stool came in yellow but was told only in red, black and white.
While the post was liked and shared tens of thousands of times, IKEA responded, using their customer’s maritime theme.
‘Hey Claus. We recommend that you take the stool out of the shower… or that you sit on it with the right uniform on and in the right setting,’ the staffer posted.
‘If you choose to keep it in the shower, make sure you are well dressed for your next sea excursion.’
