This Teen's Neighbour Asked Her To Stop Smoking Cigars After She Was Seen With A Taquito In Her Mouth

"My whole neighborhood gossiping about my 'smoking habit'."

Sarah Holder is a high school senior in Kansas.

Twitter: @sarahholderr

She's planning to major in secondary education next year, but in the meantime does some babysitting to get by.

On Sunday, Sarah's neighbour – and the mother of the kids Sarah babysits – was told by her husband Randy that he'd seen Sarah driving with what looked to be a cigar in her mouth.

The neighbour promptly sent a text to Sarah, saying Randy had seen her smoking

"a cigar of some sort".

"A lot of children live on the street so I will speak on their behalf and request you keep your habits private from the kids!" she wrote.

See, what Sarah's neighbour didn't know was that she wasn't smoking a cigar at all... She was eating a taquito.

"I feel bad because in my opinion [my neighbour] is crazy nice and I get where she's coming from," Sarah told BuzzFeed News. "She hasn't responded, I'm assuming out of embarrassment."

More than 15,000 people have retweeted Sarah's tweet about the incident, and she says most people find it just as hilarious as she does.
