Of short screws and annoyance

Today we installed a couple of light fixtures we got at IKEA the other day. One (in Lucas' room) went up super fast and easy, but the other became an annoying series of trips up and down the stairs to find longer machine screws to hold it up.

Why doesn't IKEA sell their lights with these screws included? Why are these screws always so fricking short? Why doesn't anyone sell lights with the widest head/sort of built in washer screws included?


The lights are up. They look great, but holy crap, something that should be simple and pleasant becomes frustrating for want of about 10 cents worth of screws
