What does one do when you’ve got 5kg of durian on you and the nasty security guard doesn’t allow you to take it inside the train station? You eat it of course.
At least that’s what one woman did at an Anhui railway station on Monday, quickly trying to gulp down as much durian as her nose could handle before her train departed.
The woman was stopped by always alert Chinese train station security who sniffed out a strange scent coming from her luggage. After careful investigation, they found a hefty durian inside and told the woman that regrettably she couldn’t carry the noxious fruit onto the train, local news reports.
Rather than let a perfectly good durian go to waste, the woman quickly cut open the fruit and devoured 5kg of the flesh, finally being forced to stop when her nose started to bleed just as it was time to rush off to catch her train.
While some enjoy the sweet taste of Southeast Asia’s “King of Fruit,” many find the smell simply unbearable. Back in 2013, Sydney officials evacuated a building after mistaking the smell of durian for a gas leak.
This woman is just the latest in a long line of practical travelers who have quickly resolved their disputes with train station security. Last month, one migrant worker simply slaughtered a pair of chickens he was carrying to get on the train, while another guy chugged down a bottle of baijiu to satisfy security.
Does this story make anybody else hungry for some durian?
