Seems more like, tell somebody they cant have something and they will break their necks to get it. Snow storm - bread and milk, covid-19 - TP and bleachI still can't believe that after more than six weeks - toilet paper is still a very rare commodity. Normally I wouldn't care, but I don't have just my own family to supply but also my elderly in-laws, who can't leave their residence.
I try to get some anywhere I go - but it seems incredible that it is SO HARD TO FIND ANYWHERE. How is it possible that there's a much greater need for toilet paper than there was just two months ago?
I was really tempted to steal the giant roll from the store bathroom the other day - although I know there's no way I could get out of the store unnoticed.
Heck, I'd buy online if anyone had any. We have plenty, but when is it going to be back? Is there some house somewhere where someone has floor to ceiling TP?
But yes, for the most part people are just panic buying because what happens when something really is no longer available. You learn to live without. Demand and supply just aren’t keeping up with each other. I know GP is running 24-7 and producing more than ever and even they dont know where its all going When it leaves there.
