One store review exposes the danger lurking in IKEA beds

Don’t shit where you sleep.

There’s nothing like spending an afternoon in IKEA—carousing through the showroom, opening up drawers, and sitting on various couches. But imagine testing out one of their mattresses and finding a surprise you weren’t ready for: a pile of steamy poo.

In a post that’s going around Tumblr with more than 36,000 notes, it appears this nightmare was a reality for one IKEA customer. 

While the screenshot of the reviews regarding the pooper and poop discoverer is a bit old, the posts are still on this IKEA’s Google Plus page if you scroll down far enough. Sounds like the browned bed contributed to this IKEA’s lukewarm 3.6 rating.

It’s a little disconcerting that the person who pooped in the bed left a three-star review—was the IKEA not that nice to poop in, or was the poop itself somewhat underwhelming?

And if you think this is a fabrication, well, these dudes seem pretty reliable sources. The pooper left reviews at a number of other places on Google Plus when his profile was more active. And the dude who confirmed the poop has some pretty thorough reviews for other establishments as well. It’s unlikely they’re shitting us about this.
