As The Great Cornholio once said "I Need TP for my bunghole".

As we know people have been bulk buying toilet paper for some weird unknown reason, and until today, I thought it was just a thing they have been doing in the cities, but the toilet paper aisles at Coles and Woolworths here in Gunnedah are completely bare.

Is there some, sound logical explanation about the whole toilet paper saga, or are some people just ****ed beyond measure?

The whole thing's just nuts.

no logical explanation, the average Australian is as dumb as a rock!

I actually thought this would be an American thing, but idiots here are doing it. I can't believe it

I work with a person who was stocking up on things including toilet paper, I asked 'why', they couldn't give me a an answer. I looked them squarely in the eye and said "you know this is just a flu? This isn't the Bubonic Plague, it is just the ****ing flu, 2 weeks and you are over it if you are fit and healthy and IF you catch it. What the **** are you thinking?" They just looked at me like 'dumb as a rock'. So I repeated it is just a flu, and walked off

Someone please tell me the the logic of needing all the toilet paper for the flu, it is NOT gastro or anything. I can't ****ing believe some people

My wife did the normal weekly shopping yesterday and couldn't buy any at our local (regional) Wollies, not because we were stocking up, it just that she buys it when we need it - thanks all you dumb ****s!

It's not just toilet paper that people are stocking up on. But toilet paper has hit the headlines because it's a large item that uses a fair amount of shelf space. So if a bit more than normal is sold it's easy to notice. It's probably also made the news because it's toilet relate.
Frustratingly, news of a run on toilet paper (or anything) will cause people to stock up. There doesn't need to be panic buying at all, just a rumour that there is somewhere or might be in future. That's enough to cause people to stock up in case it isn't available when they need it. Toilet paper is cheap and nonperishable therefore easy to buy extra and you know it won't go to waste.
If you heard petrol was being purchased in greater quantities and stock was low, you'd fill up before you needed to to avoid the hassle of running out later.

Good thing is, people are forward buying toilet paper. They won't be using any more than normal so those that have stocked up won't need to buy any for a while so sales will be below normal for a time restoring order (or at the very least sales will drop back to normal levels if people decide to maintain higher stock levels in their homes. But over time as people see stock in shops they'll probably return to previous purchasing habits). So the shortage is temporary. It's a flash in the pan.

I can see the point if there were issues at the various paper mills, but this is just truly astonishing.

If you think this virus is just the flu, then boy you are very ill informed. this virus was man made in a lab in china and was accidentally release hence the first person the contract and die was a healthy scientist.

I heard there will be a name change to the series next year, the new name is Penske mustang cup series with their major sponsor to be Laxative guarantee to clear any backing up at Bathurst 2020.

You panic buying toilet paper? Or just tin foil?

I had the day off today because of the weather so i thought i'll do a bit of shopping while i'm out dropping the boy to school.
At Victoria Point. 2 Woolworths 1 Coles and an Aldi. No Toilet Paper. It's still pissing down rain so i thought i'll o and pick him up from his school at Cleveland so he doesn't have to catch the bus.
Cleveland has a Coles, a Woolworths and an Aldi.

Not one ****ing roll. I only wanted a pack of it. We are down to the last 5 rolls with 4 people occasionally 5 in the house.

To all these numb nutted ****tards that are stockpiling it. If i see it in your garage or see you doing it, i swear i will smear **** all over your front door
