At Ikea, by Gordon Lawrie

After weeks of precise planning and casing the joint, they were ready. Each aged 91, nobody would suspect them.

After making their way rapidly to their target, they filled their pockets with free pencils and measuring tapes. Then greed got the better of them. Heading for the exit, Annika saw a Knippe, couldn’t resist the temptation, and insisted Henrik smuggle it out. They moved unchallenged through the checkout and outside into the evening air – they had made it!

Suddenly from behind, came a voice: the security guard.

“Excuse me, sir, why is there a coat-stand sticking out of your coat?”
