"OMG I was living my life wrong."

She realised that you're supposed to remove the plastic backing attached to new earrings.

After my nineteen years of living i have now realized that you are supposed to take the plastic part off

Clearly her tweet struck a chord – it has since been retweeted over 35 thousand times.

While others said they intentionally keep the plastic for other reasons.

@Chelsea__Smithh @zeldanarchy not necessarily, I had my ears stretched and when I wear regular studs the plastic/rubber is all that would

@Chelsea__Smithh @StaciAmor unless they tip forward in your ear then keep it on to stabilize the earring.

BuzzFeed has contacted Smith to chat with her about her discovery. But meanwhile, please answer this important question.

  1. Do you keep the plastic parts on your earrings or take them off?

    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.
