This Man Who Set Up ‘Relationship-Saving Stations’ In Ikea Is A Hero

With its maze-like layouts and massive crowds, Ikea is notorious as a place where relationships go to die. (At the very least, you and your S.O. are going to get into a mega fight while assembling your brand new Hemnes bed frame.) 

Knowing how dangerous a trip to the Swedish superstore can be for couples, comedian Jeff Wysaski recently set up some handy “relationship-saving stations” in the store’s Burbank, California location. 

“Shopping can be stressful,” the sign reads. “Here are 5 quick ways to ease tension with a loved one.”

Strategies include taking your Ikea-motivated anger out on a mini horse: 

And starring at a photo of a puppy in a cup, as a reminder that joy exists: 

Wysaski, who tweeted photos of the hilarious project on Monday, told The Huffington Post that he and his wife have been lucky enough to avoid arguments at Ikea.

“We both agree that getting in and out as fast as possible is the key to success,” he said. 

Smart man. See more of Wysaski’s relationship-saving stations below:

BLACKOUT: Dish Subscribers In 36 States Lose Access To Nearly 130 Stations

(Reuters) – Dish Network Corp said subscribers have lost access to more than 100 local stations due to a distribution dispute with Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc, affecting viewers of a string of ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC channels.

Dish said 129 stations in 36 states and the District of Columbia were pulled from its service on Tuesday, in the latest of a string of distribution disputes between media conglomerates and pay TV companies such as Dish.

Dish and Sinclair had agreed on fees to carry its TV stations but the broadcaster was holding out to try to negotiate a carriage agreement for a cable channel it does not yet own, Dish, the second-largest U.S. satellite TV company, said in a statement.

“Sinclair rejected our extension offer and has chosen to use innocent consumers as pawns to gain leverage for the economic benefit of Sinclair, while causing substantial harm and disruption to the lives of consumers,” said Warren Schlichting, Dish’s senior vice president of programming.

Sinclair could not immediately be reached for comment outside regular U.S. business hours.

 

 

Dish had filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission on Aug. 15 regarding Sinclair’s intention to black out channels.

Dish asked for a stay action the next day after the two companies agreed to a short-term contract extension to renegotiate a new retransmission agreement.

Like other pay-TV operators, Dish has been losing subscribers as viewers shift to online video offerings by rivals such as Netflix Inc.

In another distribution dispute in December, CBS Corp and Dish reached a multiyear deal hours after CBS pulled CBS, CBS Sports and Showtime from top Dish markets, blacking out NFL football games and TV shows such as “The Big Bang Theory.”
