Mai, who is Mason’s partner, posted a video on social media showing Mason peeling bananas before weighing them at the self-service checkout to save money.

Mai expressed her discomfort in the caption, saying, “The secondhand embarrassment though.” This suggests that she doesn’t fully agree with the method her partner, Mason, used.

People in the comments had different opinions about Mason’s money-saving technique. One viewer supported him, even suggesting that truly frugal individuals weigh bananas without using a bag. However, another person seemed to think that the effort Mason put in wasn’t worth the savings, commenting, “All that to save 25¢.”
