Weird ass thread I know. At Target every once and awhile I'd get an item, usually a pack of Room Essentials or Threshold bath towels in the polybag (usually but not always out of a repack) and there's this sudden overpowering stench of garlic. That's the only way I know how to describe it, "garlick-y" and "metallic" with a hint of sulfur, but mostly garlic. I asked around at Target and nobody seemed to know what the hell I was talking about, then I bounce over to a new job at a DC and once again, I'm getting shirts and pants and even purses with the exact same garlic stench sticking to them. In every single case, the items never appear dirty, stained or soiled with anything, but always look perfectly clean and new and the polybags are sealed and unopened. The worst part is that the stench will stick to anything. If I'm wearing gloves it will stick to the gloves, and if I accidentally rub my nose then it stays stuck in my sinuses for over an hour. It's fucking awful. Please tell me at least somebody on here has noticed this too?
