Yesterday, Chelsea Smith made a startling discovery.
She realised that you're supposed to remove the plastic backing attached to new earrings.
Clearly her tweet struck a chord – it has since been retweeted over 35 thousand times.
It's safe to say a lot of people lost it when they saw her tweet.
While others said they intentionally keep the plastic for other reasons.
BuzzFeed has contacted Smith to chat with her about her discovery. But meanwhile, please answer this important question.
Of course I take them off! They're supposed to be removed.No, I leave the plastic on! It deserves a special place by my ear.
