Ugh, Not This Again – Some People Are Panic Buying Toilet Paper
Well, here we go again. I was reading an article today that claimed some people are panic buying toilet paper again. This is something I just can't wrap my head around. I'm sure it's not even close to what we were dealing with in 2020 when the coronavirus pandemic first hit though. At least I hope not.
According to ABC12, there are reports that this toilet paper buying frenzy might be happening again as the delta variant spreads and coronavirus case counts and deaths rise. Apparently, manufacturers are working hard to meet the new spike in demand.
Some of this information is coming from toilet paper companies like Cottonelle and Scott toilet tissue who say they trying to get it produced and placed on store shelves as quickly as possible. I'm starting to wonder if these companies are only saying this to push sales, hmm, makes ya wonder.
Even though all of this is being said, I've yet to walk into a store and see the toilet paper shelves empty. However, I did see a guy at the grocery store the other day who had more in his cart than the average person should. I didn't really think about it until now.
Back in the spring, I drove by a house in Grand Blanc and their garage was wide open and what I saw inside I couldn't believe. They had toilet paper stacked from the floor to the ceiling. It's crazy how much was in there.
Let's all just stay calm and continue buying toilet paper like normal human beings.
