This week I’ll be talking about toilet paper…

Man, I can’t believe I just typed that out.

Yes, the toilet paper epidemic has hit the world as people have been flocking to every store possible buying as much toilet paper as they can fit in a shopping cart.

I recently saw a video shot at a Costco in Langley, BC where the doors open and every shopper literally starts running to the back of the store to grab as much toilet paper as they can.

While everyone else is doing this, I’m struggling to understand why.

There is absolutely no correlation anywhere that says the Coronavirus causes you to need 5,000 rolls of toilet paper at the ready.

I have yet to grasp how people can hear “wash your hands thoroughly” and change it into “I must buy all the toilet paper I possibly can!”

If people want to go on a massive spending spree to try avoid getting Covid19, then buy a bunch of hand sanitizer!

According to twitter (I know, not an actual source) some people have been saying Australia have already limited the amounts of toilet paper people can buy to one package a day.

While more and more videos of people stockpiling toilet paper are popping up on social media, the comment section of these videos is a mixture of people saying they got their bunch the day before and people just laughing at the weird decision these people are making.

One picture I’ve seen making the rounds on social media is of a paper telling customers “Due to the recent outbreak of stupidity and panic-purchasing by complete idiots, the nation is currently experiencing a shortage of toilet paper and common sense. We expect supplies to be replenished once these sheep-minded morons have all starved to death in their homes, surrounded by toilet paper but without anything to eat. Thank you for your patience.”

I just truly don’t understand what the thought process behind this is.

If there’s a genuine reason for it, please let me know because right now, I’m so lost at why this is happening.
