10,000 Ikea Trolleys

    Newer Older

    I like to browse through the Ikea stores, although I haven't ever really bought much. Maybe when I get a more permanent home, I'll get some Sweedish flat pack furniture.

      I like IKEA and that they make fun of it on Futurama.

      This is a great perspective and angle! You make it seem like the Ikea carts never end. I suppose that Ikea makes that easy for you since they have about five hundred parked on the bottom level.

      Wow, a very unique ange for sure. Took me a while, even having read the title, to realise what they're! Nothing speaks of Big-Box-Store culture better than your photo!

      Wow, for some reason I thought this was a picture of a train yard full of IKEA boxcars! Haha, then I realized. Do you call shopping carts "trolleys"? I've never heard that!

      Hmmm, in Canada we call it a shopping cart, or sometimes a buggy. Interesting regional and national differences in English. Like in Britain they call the front part of the car a bonnet, whereas in North America it's the hood.

      Yeah we call them shopping carts where I'm from. Buggy is also common. I think trolley is more British.

      I just thought trolleys made for a better title. Maybe I should take Ikea out. I like the alliteration of Ten Thousand Trolleys.

      On a side note flight attendants are called "trolley dollies" in Europe. I'm not sure if thats politically incorrect.

      i say buggy. and my step mother who was born in london and lived there briefly and who has a mother that still refers to English figureheads as scoundrals, says cart. I say buggy. and i am always right. kidding. but really, you can't trust her and her cart theory, she says a buggy is what is pulled behind a horse. this woman also says "disattatch". I don't care what anyone says. It isn't a word. The correct word is 'detatched'. Oh god, i've gotten off track again. . . .

      I've found that most people down here in the South call it a "buggy."

      My family always just said "basket," and I know we're the only ones, but that's what I still call it. Obviously a basket is something you hold, so I don't know why we call it that. Maybe it's a New Orleans-ism, which my dad is full of. Examples of New Orleans-isms include "southmore" instead of "sophomore" and "yoooge" instead of "huge."

      I know.

      You have no idea how badly I wish I could speak New Orleansish.

      I may just start calling it a basket.

      a tisket a tasket a blue and yellow basket . . .

      The first step in speaking like a native New Orleanian is to say "Nawlins" and "Maahdi Graw". Haha, I love it.

      I'm trying to think of more words that we make fun of my dad for! Oh! "Roon" instead of ruin. And he uses "y'all" for possessive pronouns, too, which makes me cringe. Example: "Y'all need to get y'all shoes out of living room."

      We tease him, but secretly I wish I talked that way, too. :)
