It's the case of a guy who thought he was helping, but ended up bearing the full brunt of social media outrage.
Now, I don't eat them, so I don't have to wrestle with the apparently daunting task of peeling hard-boiled eggs. Seems like a silly problem to me, since it's the year 2020 and how difficult can it possibly be to peel an egg? But here we are with a tweet showing an egg being sloshed around in some water, after which the shell just slips off, like magic! Some people did appreciate the ingenious technique, but most were focused on something else happening in the short video.
The guy leaves the faucet running the whole time!
The twitterverse exploded with negative comments about the wannabe egg hero's lack of ecological acumen.
They say no good deed goes unpunished, and I know the eggman was trying to be helpful, but as far as I'm concerned, he got what he deserved for perpetuating the presence of smelly hard-boiled eggs in the universe. Watch this conservationist's nightmare now.
