Got Toilet Paper?

GOT TOILET PAPER?

Seriously, no joke but my sister was out for over 3 hours today going from store to store in the local area to find toilet paper. My mom was down to only 2 rolls and her caregiver doesn't have a car to shop for her, so my sister does all the shopping for the week.

All the stores in our local area, including Walmart, did not have any. Tried to buy it online, Nada! No hand sanditizer, no flushable toilet wipes, and no alcohol (don't mean the drinking kind). What will be next?

This is absolute craziness! I can't even fathom the idea of not being able to get toilet paper. I've never seen anything like it in my time.

I know there were certain things rationed during WWI & WWII and I can remember in the 1970's when gasoline was rationed but never something let toilet paper.

I'm MAD AS HELL!

Okay, I've had enough! Does anyone out there have a roll or two they can spare?

I got lucky! Down to the last few rolls and the clerk at check out was kind enough to go into the overload stash - the baskets of things that people tried to buy above what they were allowed. She came back with 2 packages. I've never been so grateful! Come on by! I'll share.

I hear ya Barb. I was out today also going from store to store trying to pick up a few things.

One of the things I needed was a dozen eggs. None to be found anywhere. I finally tried the largest Walmart in our area and they had some of those non-cage eggs (forgive me if I told this story).

I grabbed some and as I turned to go I heard a woman behind me saying "this is all there is, grab them all". Her friend asked why and she said: "just get them all". There were about 6 dozen left on the shelf.

There were about 3 others standing there trying to get some eggs also while this woman corralled them into her shopping cart.

I shudder to think how our society will act in the event of a real threat to the human race.

Stay well,

Michael

It's a sad thing to see. We need to support each other to survive not horde everything in a panic. If we trust in God there's nothing to panic about. Fear is of the devil.

Hi Barbara

I am looking myself. lol

I went into my local supermarket yesterday and it looked like there had been some sort of fight in the store.

Cardboard was thrown everywhere shelves were empty and shopping baskets were left full in the aisles.

I asked a member of staff when I found one what had happened and they said nothing.

I was surprised that the store was still open in the state it was in.

I hope that this is not a sign of things to come.

A few days ago I visited a few more supermarkets and could not find any toilet paper at ALL.

I am going out again tomorrow and check out some of the smaller stores and see what I can find. lol

Who would have thought that I would be having a conversation about toilet paper. lol

Barb, I don't want to take over the subject, but the shortage of toilet paper has been caused by Manufacturing. All toilet paper in America is manufactured in China. They cut the trees down here turn them into pulpwood and then ship them by barges to China were their made into paper and then shipped back to America for resale.
Right now, the toilet paper is sitting on cargo container ships off the coast of the United States. United States will not let them unload because of the virus. ETA - Unknown

Sonny,
Thank you for that info.
I can't believe how stupid a certain POTUS can be sometimes.

That SELLOUT of manufacturing happened long before Trump took office. Do the names Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama come to mind?
