Default Panic buying of toilet paper, really?

I can understand there being no hand sanitizer, but toilet paper?

Even Dr. Fauci and the secretary of HHS at the press conference were chuckling about that

And paper towels in case they run out of toilet paper.

I was at Sams yesterday and seen this elderly couple (my age) with three 48 roll packs in their cart. These were the kind of rolls that are like 4 single rolls. That's like 576 rolls of TP! That is over a years supply! No I didn't buy any!

Default No poop tissue anywhere!

The crazy people buying up all the toilet paper is nationwide! Every store you go to in Indianapolis is completely sold out. I don’t get it. Diarrhea is not a symptom of the Corona virus infection! Went to Sams Club today and have never seen crowds like that ever. Far more than at Christmas. There are probably 15 cash register checkouts and each one had a line of at least 10 customers. It was insane.

I was in Walmart around midnight and there were pallets, upon pallets and more pallets of toilet paper and paper towels.
As was said in another post when the reorder stocks arrive the buying will be slower as the TP paranoid use up their horde.

I have plenty of the Scott 1000, single ply toilet paper. Apparently, no one else uses single ply, but it is the only kind I ever buy. It's the best.

It’s actually worldwide. Some larger TP manufacturers are in China and the factories are temporarily closed allowing the employees to stay home. Almost impossible to find TP here in NY, not at supermarket or drug store or BJs or Costco, we also have empty shelves in Seattle. AND you have a difficult time finding TP in Italy or Japan. I will say the shortage is mostly due to hoarding but the supply is limited, so can’t be blamed all on hoarding.

What cracks me up is they're also cleaning out the bottled water. At least here in WA. at our local Costco. And of course there's near riots waiting for a rotisserie chicken.. lol
