• Why is TP the indicator of panic anyway?!

      When I went to the store, they were out of a LOT of stuff! I think many people live week to week and when they were told to stay home they decided they needed to stock up on everything. Here when there is a prediction of snow everyone buys up all the tp, milk and bread. But then I heard that pop tart sales skyrocket as well... and beer!

      Prior to one snowstorm, not only was all the bread, milk and toilet paper gone, but all of the flour was gone too.

      If all of the businesses shut down, they will have to lay everyone off. If everyone is laid off, there will be a shortage of unemployment benefits. It could be 2-3 months before this winds down enough for things to go back to normal. But that milk and bread isn't going to be good for 3 months. Maybe the extra TP is for when you get sick from drinking milk that expired 6 weeks ago?

      Flour?!! I didn't know anyone still knew how to cook!! Hahaha! I had a loaf of bread left on my door!

      I know some people that are still getting paid, and most grocery stores do curbside pickup now which will limit contamination, but certain items are out of stock and I couldn't schedule a pickup for today and not until noon tomorrow. They were out of pizzas and distilled water (I need for my cpap machine).

      Now I can't order at all. It keeps giving me an error message.

      TP is cheap, consumable, and nonperishable.
  • The paper and portable bidets are not bought because of diarrhea - imodium and other medication would be more useful.
