These IKEA instructions actually told me to throw away four screws at the end.

    This would be much funnier if this was the first step.

    That’s not uncommon. A few pieces can be installed a couple of different ways. The directions branch, and your path apparently resulted in unused parts. They’re telling you not to worry, just chuck the extras.

    Or they want u to crucify Oscar.

    I liked how they put an ID near the screws to avoid you trashing some random screws except the specified ones

    It would be more appropriate for the instructions to say:

    Place all leftover nuts, bolts, and brackets in a ziplock bag with the instruction booklet… and leave it in that drawer with all of the other ziplock bags full of Ikea leftovers.

    Note: It’s possible I am a low-level hoarder.

    There’s probably a similar piece that do uses those screws so it’s cheaper to just include them in your piece as well rather then having to setup some machine that doesnt put those screws in the box. Or they just like to fuck with you

    Those screws are HUGE or else that trash can is very small.

    It’d probably drive some people crazy thinking they missed a couple steps and their whole shelf is going to fall off the wall, kill their first born son leading them to think of the one time they summoned demons with a Ouija Board and they told them they were going to take their first born son. They brushed it off at the time but now their son is gone and they can’t help but to think it’s because of the a stupid game they played when they were teens. His death would lead to a lifetime of heroin and crack for the parents and yeah. Anyways thanks IKEA for letting us know up throw out the screws

    I tried to click the little “i” information dot next to it. That’s enough internet for today.

    Fair enough. Those 4 screws have a [sneaky look](http://i.imgur.com/8lnrgKQ.jpg) about them.

    Well, dammit, throw them away, OP!!

    This is so people that follow directions know they didn’t miss a step. The assembly package fits multiple items, and it is cheaper to toss a few screws than make a bunch of discrete packages.

    Those were your extras in case you can’t read in IKEA

    But I only got 3 screws.

    *goes to back IKEA to claim my missing screw, so I can throw it in the trash*

    Just do it and stop screwing around

    If you have little kids that like to climb, don’t ignore that bit about fastening the dresser to the wall.

    THERE ARE FOUR SCREWS!

    What is this, a trashcan for ants?

    Cheaper to produce the same screw packets for multiple items and have you throw away the spares than it would be to make bespoke ones without any waste.

    No telling where this thread will go.

  22. Superflypirate

    Yeah, screw them.

  23. Khourieat

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    Wha? They’re perfectly good screws! I’d keep those.

    Just screw it

  26. RicardoLovesYou

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    They have the extra screws in case you lose the originals, no?

    1 Chop the onions

    2 Grill the onions

    3 Fry the onions

    4 Discard the onions

    Lol, I literally built that yesterday and saw that too. Can’t think of why they would do that. Maybe they have it because that particular box goes with another piece of furniture that does need those 4 screws, but they just change the instructions.

    No one has a bin that small.

    Dad advice: the day you run out of screws is the day you’ll need just one more. Never toss out consumables.

  33. Se7enLC

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    I like this a lot better than getting to the end of the directions and thinking “SHIT, I have 4 screws left over. Which step did I forget?”

  34. Alpha-Methyl

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    Well, considering Ikea furniture is typically garbage and it doesn’t take all that long for it to end up reuniting with it’s screws… I’m not surprised, haha.

  35. devilhorns13

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    Or it could be telling you to retrieve 4 screws from a tiny garbage can.

    Perspective.

    something something ikea is trash

  37. asking2die

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    No, clearly they are giving instruction to throw out 16.

  38. My_name_isnt_Kvothe

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    What do you do if you lost one and only have three left.
    Instructions unclear, I threw the wardrobe out of my 5th story apartment.
    I killed someone. Oh, no the cops are coming.
    They’re banging on my door, i don’t want to go to jail, i’m too pretty for that.
    I’m in jail, what do I do now
    … 20 years later.
    Oh, just throw out three screws, silly me.

    IKEA apparently must be doing so well they can throw away money.

    That takes some balls to say, or show pictures (the IKEA way)

    But what if you want a good screw?

  41. The-Mighty-Loaf

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    Looks like it says 16 screws…

    Trash cans have to eat too!

  44. BabyToesAndMolly

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    Maybe they thought you needed them the whole time while writing the instruction booklet and decided they weren’t necessary at the end 😁

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    I just bought that same dresser too! Took me about 4 hours to assemble… while drinking and fighting my dog because she loves to steal wood to destroy it. It’s done now tho

    Just be glad it did not tell you to jump off the bridge.

    Cool, now you can build a comfort grip for your 10mm 🙂

    Wrong! They want you to screw your garbage to the floor

  49. finnknit

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    I think this is IKEA’s way of saying “screw you”.

    The success of this is that you had exactly 4 screws left after assembly. I commend you.

    IKEA as a company is horrible to supply for. So much redundant paperwork and audits.

    Just filling out their paperwork can tie up a supervisor for an entire day.

    They are the overly attached girlfriend of corporations.

    Retaining screws that were no longer needed once the furniture was finished.

  55. qn0x

    July 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    I guess that means that you should NOT screw it.

    I’m surprised the screws are too long in the illustration.
