I saw a story yesterday about a guy who moved into a New Jersey Ikea after his apartment had to be fumigated. Even though this guy is a ridiculous cheapass, he might be on the verge of a great discovery. He should spend every second he has in that place trying to figure out one of life’s great mysteries: the extra pegs that come with every Ikea item. Who among us hasn’t built an Ikea bed or desk and then looked down at the floor and seen an extra set of pegs? It’s a scary moment. Do you rebuild, or do you take your chances and just assume that they gave you too many pieces?
