Leftover Screw And Wedge Dowel Still Haunt Local Ikea Customer Years After Assembly
Lansing, Michigan -- The event has haunted him for years, but Lansing resident and homeowner Michael Washington-Smith is ready to speak about the chilling events of that cold January day in 2007. On this, the tenth anniversary, we were able to get a candid Mr. Washington-Smith to sit down with The Flake News and discuss his personal tragedy.
He had just passed the two-hour mark of assembling his new Mackapär shoe storage cabinet. Having already questioned whether he should have just purchased a similar and similarly priced pre-assembled item, he was quite satisfied to have completed the sturdy white cabinet.
His wife spent the evening packing and stuffing all sorts of shoes and clothing into the cabinet. The next day, Mr. Washington-Smith made a horrifying discovery while moving the packaging into his recyclables.
“They were just there. A screw. A wedge dowel. Where did they even come from? Everything was perfect, I put everything together perfectly. It made no sense, and even to this day ten years later, the cabinet is in great shape. But where were the screw and wedge dowel supposed to go? Was it worth it to disassemble the whole thing? She had already put all that shit in there.”
And it was a secret he kept from his wife until this day. Mrs. Washington-Smith was not available for comment.
