Just like most people, Chelsea Morris from Edinburgh thought that someone was breaking and entering her home after hearing a loud slamming from downstairs.
Chelsea texted her brother after hearing the sound, telling him she thinks "someone's banging on the door" and to "go check" because she felt like the "whole house was shaking." But her brother's response left the woman baffled as it revealed the reason for the terrifying loud slamming.
"I think someone’s banging on the door. Go check I’m scared. Like not tapping, proper banging," Chelsea said in her texts, to which her brother—Ryan—promptly responded with: "I was breaking up my Terry’s chocolate orange."
While it may seem absurd that Ryan would slam the chocolate, and unintentionally scare his sister, he was just following the brand's slogan: "Don't just tap it, whack it."
Chelsea shared the hilarious misunderstanding on Twitter, saying: "When you text ur bro from your room thinking the house is getting broken into and he replies with this," and attached a screenshot of their conversation.

Her tweet gathered over 125,000 likes and nearly 15,000 retweets since posting it last week. Aussie blogger Rachel Hawkins replied to the tweet, saying that she "put chips in tables doing mine before, so I can really appreciate this."
Chelsea responded to one of her friends, who replied with a bunch of laughing face emojis, saying: "My whole house was shaking I thought someone was trying to come through my front door."

Another one of her friends shared the tweet and said that she "can't believe my gal has went viral over a f*cking Terry’s chocolate orange." Other users related to Chelsea's situation, saying it would be something that would happen to them or something they would do.
Terry's Chocolate Oranges are famous for being stocking fillers for Christmas and, as the holiday approaches, let's hope that dining tables survive the slamming of these chocolates.
