Mankind has shown many faces in the last few months. One of the faces is of a hoarder who wanted to make a profit off his products that many Americans were trying to buy.
Toilet paper, baby wipes, hand sanitizer, Lysol products all are in the scope of hoarders nowadays because it is something that is needed more so then ever.
According to News Week:
A man in Australia who purchased around $10,000 worth of toilet paper and hand sanitizer was recently denied a refund by a supermarket owner.
John-Paul Drake, director of Drakes Supermarkets in Australia, recently posted a video to YouTube and appeared on a radio show to talk about the situation and why he denied the customer's refund request.
"I had my first customer yesterday who said he wanted to get a refund on 150 packets of 32-pack toilet paper and 150 units of one-liter [hand] sanitizer. I told him that," Drake said as he showed his middle finger to the camera.
While appearing on ABC Radio Adelaide in Australia, Drake explained that the man reached out requesting a refund after he was unable to sell the products on his eBay account.
"In the conversation [the shopper said] 'my eBay site has been shut down, so we couldn't profiteer off that'," Drake told the radio station saying that the sum of the products equated to around $10,000.
The situation comes amid a time when many people across the globe have participated in panic buying, with many believing that they need to stock up on products like toilet paper and hand sanitizer, mainly as a result of the novel coronavirus, which has kept people isolated and quarantined.
Following the influx of panic buying and stockpiling on different items, a number of supermarkets, including Drakes, have placed a ban on the number of items per customer, but according to Drake, this specific customer was able to find a way around the limits.
"The person had a team of people that bought the products, because you're only allowed to buy one of each at a time," Drake told 3AW Radio in Australia. "So, you do your sums at 150 separate purchases to buy these. Absolutely disgraceful."
"The rest of my team [is] over this sort of behavior and having to police people taking more than they need – that's a tough thing to deal with," He added.
What this man should be ordered to do is donate it to homeless shelters, etc.
