FROM biting our nails to sleeping with makeup on, many of us have bad habits.
But unfortunately for one reality show contestant, her drama was broadcast on TV for everyone to see – and it left the Internet completely divided.
The woman named Patricija caused a stir with her supermarket ritual during an appearance on Australian cooking show, ‘My Kitchen Rules’ – and some people even went so far as to call it “rude”.
In the episode, she is seen rushing through a supermarket in Queensland in an effort to quickly find the ingredients needed to make dishes for their Lithuanian menu.
While rushing to get the necessary ingredients to make cold radish soup, Patricija picked up four bunches of shallots from the vegetable stand.
However, as often happens when you’re in a hurry, she accidentally dropped another bunch on the floor – and quickly picked them up and put them back on the shelf.
And the act itself divided opinion among viewers – with some calling it “gross” and others admitting they would do the same.
One person wrote: “This is disgusting. I know we have to wash products when we buy them home from the supermarket, but no one does that.”

“So putting the fruit or vegetable back on the shelf is rude to other shoppers.”
A second person agreed: “I usually take it to the staff and tell them it fell on the floor.
“It was the right thing to do.”
A third person, who had a similar experience, wrote: “Today, at the grocery store, I encountered an employee who was angry because I returned the orange my child dropped on the floor.
“He went on to talk about how the ‘poisoned’ oranges needed to be re-washed.”
However, others defended Patricija and said that everyone else had completely overreacted.
“I put it back. If I damage it to the point where it can’t be sold, I give it to the salesman and tell him I dropped it. Then I continue shopping,” one person commented.
A agreed more: “I put it back. End of story.”
