“The waiter said, ‘Your table will be ready shortly‘“ (at the IKEA restaurant)

When a waiter says, “Your table will be ready shortly,” this does not mean that the restaurant is actually constructing a table, but there are jokes.

“The waiter said, ‘Your table will be ready shortly.‘ This is the last time I’ll be coming to Ikea’s restaurant” was posted on Twitter by Bob Kostic on April 12, 2012. The joke probably originated on the Sickipedia website.


Wikipedia: IKEA
IKEA (/aɪˈkiːə/, Swedish: [ɪ²keːa]) is a Swedish-founded multinational group, that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture, kitchen appliances and home accessories. It has been the world’s largest furniture retailer since at least 2008. It was founded in Sweden in 1943 by then-17-year-old Ingvar Kamprad, who was listed by Forbes in 2015 as one of the ten richest people in the world, worth more than $40 billion.
