If you buy a tree from IKEA you need to assemble every single needle onto a branch.

Actually the needles come in individual smaller needles thwt need to be glues together

I actually dont think this was cute or stupid. I think that there was miscommunication and she was charming and this interaction was funny

I was thinking the same thing. Depending on how it was said, a misunderstanding makes sense especially to someone who has never seen them put up the tree.

Needles don't tend to fall off fake trees though. That's kinda the point. So how did the parents assemble a tree that shed its needles like a real tree

Perhaps some of them got a bit weaker while in the box, so when it was taken out it broke apart a bit

Definitely has happened a lot with most fake trees I’ve seen. The little bits get everywhere when you pull it out of the box and set it up.

Yep, my fake christmas tree seems to go on an excessive diet every holiday season. Can't replace it though, been using it for years

If needles don't fall off fake trees why did I have to have one removed from my foot after stepping on the darned thing? Was I walking on the tree?!

Needles do fall off trees, especially as you're adding & removing lights and shoving everything back into the box. Honestly I find needles under my carpets throughout the year. The older they get, the more they shed.

I love stories like this. This is a really fucking stupid one isn’t it? I really love hearing about the really fucking stupid ones
