Are people hoarding toilet paper again in your area?

I just talked to my daughter and they are in her city.  I will likely go to the store after work and try to get pack.  So we do not run out.


WHY???? Are they hoarding it again????

    That's what the news online is saying.  I have many leaves in my yard which I will sell at a good price when the Toilet paper supply runs out.

    LOL.  Good luck if you can get someone to pay for your leaves.

    The aren't small leaves.  They are big ones, each one the approximate size of one square of toilet paper.  It's a better idea than the ancient Roman's idea of wiping.  The Romans had a sponge-like item on the end of a stick.  After using it, they would rinse it off and give it to the next person in line. Just the thought makes me a little sick.

    After that, the leaves look pretty good.

    I think they are because there didn't seem to be as much on  the shelf as usual. I have lots of TP stocked up but I didn't get it because of the viris I got it in case we get snowed in.  Cheers!

    So far, no.  The stores were fully stocked this morning. 

    What I want to know is if people are hoarding intelligence.  It seems to be a scarce commodity.  From the looks of things, we may run completely out of it before years end. 

    Don't hoard it people, use it!

    Looks like we're headed down that path again.

    I never really thought much about it. After I read your question I decided to check locally. It looks as if the stores are sitting pretty well so far but that could change in a hurry. Mainly because our governor just decided to stop almost all indoor gatherings for up to 3 or 4 weeks once again. I'm sure the people will panic horde again at some point.

    I did too until my daughter called. We were not that low. But I did go to the store to pick up a package. And I could tell it had been hit hard.  I got a big pack so I know we are good for a while.

    They did start in the UK, but the supermarkets have kept the shelves fully stocked, so I'm gathering people have calmed down.

    Unfortunately, yes. South Australia, after being COVID free since May, just had an outbreak (it only takes one idiot). For some reason, ppl have this irrational idea that it causes explosive diarrhoea.
    Panic buyers following the masses, not realizing than the "m" is silent.
