Shopping at IKEA is a truly one-of-a-kind experience, something the store's true devotees know all too well. I mean where else can you get incredible Swedish meatballs, basically complete a maze, and walk out with furniture and accessories you'll never be able to pronounce?
And that's not to mention the process that is actually building your IKEA wares.
But after you've been once, you get it, and these tweets sum up the experience perfectly.

Me, age 23: “man I can’t wait until I’m a real adult with an expendable income so I don’t have to shop at IKEA anymore.”— LindsYEE Ellis (@thelindsayellis) August 27, 2018
Me, age 33: “yeah we should probably upgrade to the Hemnes. Let’s go ahead and grab an Ingolf and a Bekväm while we’re here.”
