In the world of social media, there’s never a shortage of odd behavior to get the internet talking. In a recent TikTok post, a woman of a certain golden age is seen going to great lengths to ensure her garlic bulbs’ quality before purchasing.
Her tactics, however, have ignited a heated discussion online.
The 6-second video clip reveals the elderly woman peeling garlic bulbs at a local supermarket.
The skins pile up in the basket, with some even littering the floor. Interestingly, a prominent warning notice hangs from the garlic basket.
Yet, the woman continues her peeling mission, seemingly oblivious to the supermarket’s clear request, “Don’t peel me. Feel free to pick and choose but please do not peel off my skin. Thank you.”
The TikTok user who shared the video expressed irritation at this woman’s behavior, stating emphatically in the video caption, “Come on guys, this needs to stop.”
However, the user left many questions unanswered. Did they confront the woman? Did they alert the store staff? Where and when did this incident take place?
Since its upload on Monday, the video has quickly caught fire on the internet, racking up over 126,000 views.
Netizens have weighed in with a mix of reactions. Some sympathize with the elderly woman, recalling their own bad experiences with spoiled produce.
One netizen brought an economic angle to the debate, said: “Peeling the skins off can actually make the garlic weigh less.
A number of commenters are siding with the supermarket, citing courtesy and respect for store policies.
