A convenience store worker has been caught inhaling a gas believed to be nitrous oxide from a balloon from behind the counter.

The worker pauses for a moment before sheepishly replying: ‘Yeah, he’s doing nangs, I’m not doing nangs.’

The woman then asks if she can do a nang, to which the worker replies ‘yeah, but you have to come in’ pointing to behind the counter.
He then appears to indicate there are more people doing balloons behind the counter before asking the woman if she’ll pay for it.
‘I have to buy it?’ the woman asks. ‘Nah, I’ll just have this.’
‘Tell me you’re from Australia without actually telling me you’re from Australia,’ the woman captioned the video.

Commenters indicate the incident took place from a convenience store on Hindley Street in Adelaide’s CBD
Some social media users accused the woman of being a ‘Karen’ for exposing the worker for inhaling the gas – believed to be nitrous oxide – from the balloon.
The use of nitrous oxide isn’t illegal in Australia but it is an offence if it is sold for misuse.
The consequences of misusing the drug are very real, with symptoms including brain and nerve damage, heart problems, fainting, memory loss and psychosis.
Prolonged exposure to the gas can lead to memory loss and depletion of the vital bodily vitamin B12.
In South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales it is only an offence to sell nangs to someone reasonably believed to misuse them.
