It’s not clear what the position was but it’s clear that whatever was, the folks at Ikea did not want this person working for them. They made that clear five times, which begs the question, what made this person attempt this so many times?
We all love putting together stylish Swedish furniture, but how desperate we are to work there? Probably not as much as this person.
Sweet Sweet Revenge
Sometimes the reasoning for being laid off on the first day has got nothing to do with the employee but falls down to ridiculous expectations from employers who believe that if they hired you — they own you.

We think the HR people at this place should have some training done, just to assure they know how to tell the difference between people who actually got the job, and people that haven't.
And for you, who got fired without even knowing you were hired, try seeing if you are entitled to compensation following dismissals without prior notice.
These sneaky law enforcement officers know how to catch people out. This poor kid was just trying to go easy on this woman, granted he probably thought that cutting her some slack might increase his chances with her, but sadly, it was all a ruse.
While they ended up sacking the guy, those cops are hardly heroes. This kind of bait and arrest schtick should be banned!
A Tad Off-Brand
It might be surprising, but multi-million dollar brands are rather image-conscious.

So when this guy rocked up at this big company sporting a product of a well-known competitor, they understandably got a little sensitive about the whole thing. From the sound of this story though, it sounds like he was looking for a way out.
