There seems to be a new “viral complaint” about something every day!
Have you seen this one yet?

Someone from Thornhill found “Avocado Halves” for sale at their local Sobey’s, and that person’s friend was so upset about it that she posted a photo of it on the Sobey’s Facebook page.
“Surprised and disappointed after a friend posted a picture of an avocado for sale at his local Sobeys in Thornhill, Ont. It’s been pre-cut, then wrapped in plastic and cardboard. Avocado’s have their own perfect, compostable, wrapping. Adding packaging to an avocado is strange to say the least. This is wasteful and I’m curious about the reasoning for Sobeys stocking avocado this way?”
Sobey’s responded with this:
“This product was developed for people who might be new to using avocados and for a little more convenience. It eliminates the guess work when it comes to ripeness and any challenges if you are not familiar with peeling and seeding a fresh avocado. The packaging is there to keep the fresh wholesome appearance and quality of the avocado without it browning prior to consumption.”
But many people are leaving comments on the Facebook post saying it’s for “lazy” people, and some are calling it “distressing”.
What do YOU think about it?
