If you’ve ever contemplated tossing IKEA furniture out the window mid-put-together, you’re not alone.

In fact, Quebec stands as the most-stressed out location around the world when it comes to putting together IKEA furniture, and we admittedly agree.

And guess where everyone goes to vent? Twitter.

According to a new study from Household Quotes, a homeowner UK publication, nearly 50,000 IKEA-themed tweets were used to identify where and who are most stressed out when it comes to the furniture retail company.

“We figured out where in the world all the shouting is coming from, which designs cause the most anger, and even how your name and gender might connect to the stress IKEA flatpacks cause,” says the survey.

According to Household Quotes, 60% of Quebec’s tweets about IKEA are stress-related, tying them for first in the entire world with Moscow.

The IKEA furniture most likely to cause stress are their sofas, according to the survey, with 50.5% of IKEA sofa tweets showing signs of agitation. Cupboards, nightstands, dressers, and cribs round out the company’s most stress-inducing tweets.

The survey didn’t highlight which swear words Quebecers prefer to yell during construction.
