So I was reading… trying to get my mind off the stuff that’s happening to me… And I found this hilarious article. Apparently there is a massive wave of organized crime going on in America, and it targets this highly unlikely item: Tide Laundry Detergent.
Apparently the run on the product is so large shops are putting the detergent behind glass to prevent people from stealing it. Generally, people come into a store, load a cart full of Tide, and run off with it. It is a form of organized shoplifting. *OMG*
On the streets, Tide has become a form of currency. Even drugs are being traded for Tide! Of course, the big question remains: Why On Earth Do People Steal Laundry Detergent?
I’m still trying to figure out if this is a hoax, because really… It is almost too stupid to be true. But then, knowing people and the nature of people… It might very well be possible. Enjoy, my dear followers!
