Time to 'fess up. ;)

Have you ever pocketed a handful of those little free pencils and/or paper tape measures from the Ikea store?

I have an Ikea pencil in my pencil case, actually. However, I tend to use my other pencil, because it is sharper. :p Although that's still not very sharp. I'm one of those people who's pencils never get sharpened when another pencil arrives on the scene. ;)

Like, every time I visit Ikea :D
(which isn't too often, since the nearest one is two countries away)

I've never been to an Ikea store so, no. I have stolen those crayons they give you with the kiddie menu at certain resturaunts though. Yep, I'm bad. :D

I have a couple of the tape measures but not the pencils. But I have an excuse. I was designing my kitchen at the time and it was handy to check the cupboard sizes.

As their store is not close to us anymore most of my kitchen was designed on the computer. Ikea have a handy little kitchen designer program you can download free. Just put in the dimensions of your room and off you go. It even gives it to you in 3D and you can look at it from any angle. Then you use their little cut out cupboards and stick then onto graph paper. So their pencils were unnecessary.

Haven't been to Ikea in years, though. But who knows, I might be moving out soon.

I confess! http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c261/AmpersandTR/daEmotes/cries.gif I haven't been to Ikea in ages, but every time I left that place I took some of the stubby little pencils with me. They were of horrible quality, but they were free and pocket-sized. :o

But since they're free, it's not theft, right? :pi: Greedy, maybe, but not illegal. :cln: Just like grabbing a handful of free mints from a restaurant counter isn't theft... :whi:

Nope. Nothing like that in Czech IKEAs. And I would not do that even if there was. It may be a small thing, but it's still a theft. And as such, I will never EVER commit such a thing.

There is no IKEA in Ireland, yet. They had to change the planning laws to allow for a store of that size to be built here.

So, no I haven't.

Maybe if the Ikea people decide one day that they don't like people taking lots of pencils, they could put a sign up by the pencils saying "Only take one per visit. And don't just keep going in and out either, smart arse."

Never.I think their pencils, as well as their design are as atractive as a sheet of white paper,but that's just my point.
