Most people post on reddit with the intention of getting a laugh or two from people, not to be criticized for behaviors that take place within their home. One reddit user received lots of backlash after posting that every week his wife buys him two bananas and every week he throws away two bananas. He then proceeded to attach a picture of these bananas. One banana was almost black and the other was heavily spotted. After posting he was met with multiple different comments telling him what he should do with his bananas instead of throwing them out. Making banana bread, smoothies, pancakes, as well as putting them in oatmeal and feeding them to the birds were just a few of the suggestions he received. One commenter suggested that all it takes is a little creativity to reduce food waste.
