(Newser) – If you're going to get really drunk and pass out in public, aim for an IKEA. An apparently intoxicated woman recently stumbled into one of the furniture stores in Israel, vomited on a couch, and then passed out on a bed (after politely removing her shoes first). The employees were kind enough to let her sleep it off until the store closed, at which point a security guard woke her up so she could leave the building, the Times of Israel reports. As for customers, they simply avoided the affected area.

"The customers simply didn't try out that bed," explains one. In a statement, IKEA says 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." In semi-related news, you can once again order a hot dog at IKEA stores in Russia. They resumed sales today, following March's horse meat scandal, the Moscow Times reports.
