Guy might get a longer term for smuggling the TP than the "coke".

This toilet paper ridiculousness has been a boon for my business. People are flushing all types of things, especially wipes and paper towels, down their toilets. I have never snaked as many sewers in a three-week period as I have these past three.

I go into at least ten houses per day and I have seen where several people have hoarded more (a ‘slight’ exaggeration) toilet paper than Costco normally keeps in stock. It is these people who have unnecessarily caused others to be without toilet paper.

It’s just plain crazy!

Now's your chance. Switch from green backs to rolls of toilet paper for your services.

Recently read an article concerning the hoarding of TP. According to psychologists this practice is a mental sickness outgrowth of OCD. The experts have now labeled it as FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) Disorder.

These people need help!

I would like to see all companies take the stance Costco is taking on not allowing returns of essentials like TP bottled water or hand sanitizer. if you stocked up hoping to make a buck or because you are stupid so sad so bad. JMHO

I noticed that my local Walmart has implemented some rationing of "essentials". Go through the check stand with a cart full of TP, Paper Towels, soup, pasta, flour, etc and they checker will only allow the purchase of a small amount, the rest being re-stocked.

NO Government regulation necessary, just some help from the merchants to spread the supply out and let their distribution system catch up.

I recall panic buying in another commodity that can't be discussed here. Problem was that people bought up in one month as much product as factories produced in over a year. If people just bought what they needed for only the next month or so, no shortages would have occurred.

TP and Paper towels may not have an expiration date but many food items do. Hope people pay attention and down the road don't eat that can of canned peaches with bulged ends

Expect sales of bidet's to soar---

When there's no TP, why not a TP-less solution.

I'll bet all those that installed Bidet's in their RV's are feeling pretty smug about now

Maybe people will order up their own fancy Japanese toilet/toilet seat that is not only heated but also rinses and blows dry to finish off your seated session

No TP? Own one of those, who cares.

Everyone better hope these isn't a virus causing diarrhea or there will be a run on nasal spray.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
