With so much going on in the world its the little things that still matter most.

Things such as hiding the beans for you and your significant other in the woods just in case the world comes to an end and you have to dig them up.

Apparently some guy bought some beans and he and his girlfriend couldn’t agree on whether to eat them immediately or burry them in the woods and save them for “if things get bad” with the current pandemic.

The story was posted to Twitter, although it originally appeared on Reddit. While the original post apparently was deleted, a Twitter account dedicated to the “relationships” subreddit shared the original text.

According to the post, the unnamed author bought 30 cans of beans and 15 cans of chickpeas in preparation for the coronavirus lockdown.

That’s either a lot of chili or a lot of hummus, both equally delicious.

According to the story, one night he opened the cabinet to make some chili and found the beans gone.

He said, “I asked my girlfriend, and she told me she buried all of the beans in the woods.”

After realizing that she wasn’t joking, the author said his girlfriend explained that she wanted to save the beans for “if things get bad.” When the boyfriend accused her of being “ridiculous,” she reportedly responded that she was “protecting our beans.”

She sounds like a nutcase. According to the story, the girlfriend buried the beans because “canned food was most valuable for long-terms means.” Grocery stores have yet to close, lady.

The author claimed she said she planned on burying more beans in the woods.

The woman can’t be trusted,  as it turns out their argument escalated (with the girlfriend apparently declaring that she will never “jeopardize the beans”) and the couple stopped speaking to each other.

Their story has received over 23,000 responses.
