Woman blasted for gross supermarket etiquette – but some say they do the same

It's safe to say that the majority of us have habits that are a bit grim.

From wearing the same socks three days in a row to not washing your hands before eating, some people like to test the limits of what is deemed socially acceptable. But one woman recently committed a 'gross' habit in a supermarket that certainly caused mass controversy.

She was even caught red-handed on video – and then it was shown on TV. After it was aired, people were quick to comment on the 'gross' act that was committed by a contestant on Australian cooking show, My Kitchen Rules.

The contestant under fire for the habit, Patricija, had to rush around a grocery store in Queensland to find ingredients for her team meals. But in her haste, she made one error – and her reaction to that is what caused the stir on social media.

Many viewers are not happy so shared their wrath on social media. One person snapped: "It's just gross. I know we're supposed to wash our produce when we get it home from the supermarket, but no-one does it.
