Some people are just selfish. When some people hoard things like toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, etc. other people have to go without. So I guess these people only care about themselves. Because few people buy 72 rolls of toilet paper or 10 canisters of disinfectant wipes or 10 bottles hand sanitizers at one time. But it's all about you. Many of you bristle at the thought of the government telling you what to do or dictating what you can buy (eg. NY ban on large soda's). Yet you do things like this that proves the point of people that want more governmental control.
Take a breath, people. Especially now that there is a pandemic. Be respectful and mindful of the fact that your neighbors and other people also need supplies.

Ebay? I thought that is where people sold used items. Are you actually buying used .... Oh, never mind.

Adults can also use washable reusable diapers as wipes.

In days of old,
when Knights were bold,
and tissue was not invented,
they wiped their a**s on clumps of grass,
and the were quite contented!

You can always use the Lifestyles section of the Daily Sun since there is no need to read it with everything closed

We used the Sears catalog at grandma's outhouse. It hurt a little.

Newsflash! In October 2020, the remaining people who are still alive travel through the United States checking the 300 million bodies that are lying all over the place and noticed one particular thing, all have very clean rear ends.

I buy my tp in the big packs at costco or bj's but only when I am nearly out. No sense in hoarding this. Of course as we get nearer to hurricane season i will keep two cases of water in the house.

Part 2
In days of old and Knights were bold and toilets weren't invented

They left their loads upon the roads and walked away contented

It's because you can't get masks. If you have to go out, wrap yourself (or just your head) in toilet paper like a mummy and you'll be protected.

I would be curious to know how much fresh food (bread, milk, eggs, meats, etc.) people are hoarding will go to trash because it spoiled before it could be consumed. Or how much weight will people gain trying to eat all this food before it spoils. People are nuts!!! The virus will not stop the chickens from laying Hess, the cows from giving mild, water running out of the faucet, etc. WAKE UP EVERYONE; calm down and use some common sense before you go overboard hoarding!!!
