IKEA accused of spying on customers; allegedly learned that assembling its furniture is frustrating

17 Dec

PARIS–revelations that the French division of IKEA has been spying on its employees and customers for years caused an uproar here today. According to court documents, IKEA used wiretaps and private detectives to learn that assembling its furniture was “really annoying” and that “no one likes those hex keys.”

According to court documents, IKEA put customers under surveillance. In doing so, it discovered that “our furniture is really a big hassle,” but that “a lot of people have some weird attachment to it anyway.”

IKEA also spied on its own employees, according to the same court documents. Its key finding was apparently that “those meatballs contain some weird-looking meat” and also that “working at IKEA totally sucks.”
