Sometimes, at work, flatpack furniture needs to be assembled. I've come to call this the IKEA Test. A real-world IQ test, in which I quietly judge which of my co-workers is retarded at spatial visualization. Sadly, the test began with a black guy who I really like-- who is also kind & decent & pleasant to be-around-- but who couldn't build this side-table thing-- if his life depended on it.
"Every Time"** (**or not. my confirmation bias, my selective-memory, etc.) there's "always" some brown or black guy who puts the things together with parts sticking-out wrong ways or upside-down. To their credit... those guys actually go-for-it & try to build the thing & blatantly fail, like honest competitors. White and fancy-asian women, on the other hand, barely start working... before they quit at the slightest setback.
This week is a novelty-- a lesbian hired a klavern of more-lesbians. New stereotypes I'm learning: Lesbians are very messy, & they can't follow instructions, and they confidently/mindlessly disagree with every single thing proposed at a crew meeting-- except whatever the grade-school-teacher-like Head Lesbian says.
And one of them wore a hoodie similar to this trendy streetwear logo...

Except her hoodie said "PALESTINE" on the sides of the triangle.
If you're going to wear a garment declaring your race/nationality/religion to the world... maybe you shouldn't do anything that makes your group look like retards.
This chick made a rat's nest of packing-material all-around her. She kept groaning and declaring the chair-building task 'hard'. And, she gave-up-on using the little turning-cylindrical things which grab onto to the heads of the internal machine screws... which holds the furniture together...
Her final, amazing, farewell to any semblance of trying to do a passable job... was her announcing aloud, 'I don't think anyone is actually going to sit in these chairs, anyway.'
