On visiting Ikea I was amazed how busy the shop was but how quiet the pay points were.

Yup, only in China will you see sleeping in furniture stores - and never buy anything.
This behavior would never be tolerated anywhere else.
I'm just here for the money

IKEA said, its China business grew at a "double-digit" pace, faster than the domestic market overall or in other countries.
In fiscal 2012, IKEA China's revenue reached 6 billion yuan ($970 million) at its new and existing stores, up 23 percent year-on-year. Revenue was up 15 percent in terms of comparable stores.

This behavior ...

In Israel staff concerned for the welfare of an apparently drunk woman let her sleep off her hangover in a bed after she vomited on a showroom couch.

Rather than being emitted from the shop, she was allowed to sleep it off and was undisturbed throughout the evening until the store was closing.
A statement from the Netanya outlet, quoted in the Times of Israel, said the woman 'felt unwell when she arrived at the store, and our people therefore permitted her to rest until she felt better.

'We wish her the best of health.'

New Yorkers and Germans alike have been unashamedly using the furniture store's free creche to release themselves from the responsibilities of parenthood and to have some free adult time.

In Germany, parents have played tennis or got their hair done while kids were dropped off to play at the creche, according to Der Spiegel Online.

This If you could just inform yourself before using your rear end to post you wouldn't give the permanent impression that you're dumb!

Better become a migrant like me and enjoy having a choice of where you live rather than be a wanna ...

China provided you the choice, snakeey. That's why you chose to leave your own country.
