Memes are something that makes the social media a complete fun. Without them even scrolling is not fun, but never thought that it would be unsafe for a washing detergent – Tide!
Yes! This time its not kid, not a woman or or minor, this year a washing detergent is not safe. This is not a joke; Tide, a commonly used detergent is not safe in 2018. It is now found locked up in different stores. Yes, the stores have started locking up the tide pods now.
The tides spokesperson said that It was not the company’s decision. He Said, “We do know that some Tide products have been in secure shelving in some retailers prior to the recent social media conversations.”
Several stores did this because they found that this has a high resale value. The stores claimed theft cases for this washing powder. Not just this but the people living around such stores say that people even eat such sort of powder. And other spokesperson from Walgreens claims that the memes have pushed this issue. He points at social media to be the big reason behind locking tide behind the store bars.
Still it is not clarified that are kids coming and eating up this detergent or are memes the real cause behind such action. All these things really creates that curiosity in mind to know the actual reason behind. Some people even commented about the issue in their social media platforms which brings out statement like:
“In my neighborhood, laundry detergent has been locked up for years (along with baby formula). It’s a high theft item even when idiots aren’t trying to eat them.”
“Yeah, I don’t know about this craze about eating them, but where I live, laundry detergent is a high theft item and those pods are kind of pricey, not to mention, they’re probably easier to conceal than say, a giant ass jug of liquid detergent. People are stealing them because they’re easy to return for the cash or store credit and just because some people would rather steal than pay out the ass for some clean clothes. If it’s about not being able to afford them, I don’t understand why they can’t just shop the dollar store like I do. Or shop the sales. Clip some damn coupons. Etc.”
The world really wants to know that why such actions are being taken up for a minal product.
