04 Aug Who Knew?! Earrings And Little Plastic Discs.
A Twitter user is burning up the internet with the astonishing news that the little plastic discs on the back of inexpensive earrings can be – wait for it – removed. “After my nineteen years of living I have now realized that you are supposed to take the plastic part off,” she reported breathlessly, and nearly 40,000 people have shared the news. “But not everyone was on the same page,” reports Woman’s Day, among several media outlets that have picked up on the issue. “Apparently the plastic part keeps the earring in place, especially if it’s one that tends to tip forward and is a little heavier than regular studs.” Indeed, some sources maintain that the discs not only hold the earrings in place nut can also prevent droopy lobes.
