I don't quite understand the whole toilet paper craze. People are even fighting over it a lot like what you see happen during Black Friday.
Why do you need it with a new virus? Why spend so much money on that and not something like water? I can understand buying a crap ton of water for drinking I guess but toilet paper?
Where I live the shelves are wiped clean of toilet paper. Not only that Lysol, Lysol wipes, water, milk (yeah wtf?), bread, and common sense.
I'm so glad I remembered to get my toilet paper while doing my normal grocery run before people were fighting over it. See I was almost out and picked up a 6 big roll count like I usually do when I need to stock our house.
According to Fox News:
Haidee Janetzki meant to order 48 rolls of toilet paper, but instead ordered 48 boxes, Reuters reports. Now, she and her family are the proud owners of 2,304 rolls of toilet paper, which they have stacked up in their garage.
Australia is currently facing a shortage of the bathroom necessity, ABC reports. This is likely due to Australians stockpiling everyday items after hearing about reports of the coronavirus outbreak. This has forced some factories to ramp up production to a 24-hour-a-day schedule.
“I’m relieved my friends and family don’t have to worry about it,” Haidee Janetzki stated.
Chris Janetzki shared a video of his family’s unexpected toilet paper haul on Facebook, where he showed Haidee sitting on a throne made out of the large boxes of toilet paper.
According to the family, they don’t plan on using all of the toilet paper themselves (which they say would take them about 12 years to do). Instead, the family says they plan on selling the extra boxes in a fundraiser for the same price they paid.

I mean how can this honestly be an accident? How do you not see such a huge price difference in 48 rolls of TP vs 2,304 rolls?
That's a significant price difference no matter what country you live in.
