People are just realising how ballpoint pens actually work and are amazed they didn't realise earlier | The Sun

SOMETIMES you use something everyday but don't ever stop to think about how it actually works.

Well that's exactly what happened to one woman who was in total disbelief when she realised how ballpoint pens work.

Sharing on her TikTok account, Amber reacted to an extreme close-up clip of a pen gliding across a sheet of paper.

She watched in amazement as she realised that ballpoint pens are called that for a reason – there's an actual ball.

That's right, it's not just a name, but Amber and other TikTok users had no idea.

She said: "I'm 24-years-old and didn't know this is how a pen actually works, it's rolling!"

A second wrote: "I didn't realise some people didn't know this… it's in the name."
