That roll of toilet paper was so close but yet so far away the lone package of toilet paper was there on the shelf of the grocery store alone waiting for someone to buy it, but price seems to play a decisive roll in the purchasing of toilet paper.
Since I have a bit more time on my hands I have started my own toilet paper observation when I go shopping at the grocery store, and it seems the cheaper brands sell-out first and shoppers are hesitant about buying the more expensive sorts/brands.
Who wants quality when you can have quantity???? Though I am always biting my tongue not to ask people who have piled their shopping trolly full with inexpensive toilet paper…
I want to ask “Why are you buying so much and what is stopping you from buying the other product?”….
Plus, how much toilet paper do people need??? Let us be real here and think about the first lockdown in March 2020, when people stockpiled toilet paper as if the toilet paper would never be produced again.
Now we have November 2020 and people are hoarding toilet paper again…. Those people must have enough rolls by now to encompass the world a couple of times. Now what???
And to top it off on my way home from the grocery store there was a guy carrying 6 packages of the large family packs of toilet paper. This time I wanted to run up to him and ask, “Do you have enough toilet paper now and how much do you have bunkered at home?” Though as you can imagine I didn’t…
These people who have lots of toilet paper hoarded at home and probably not thought about buying food to eat, so that they can use the toilet paper, but they have toilet paper…. I guess it is like a life ring used when people fall overboard from a ship…round with a hole in the middle of it and will save your life; otherwise I have no idea??????
The mystery of hoarding toilet paper and the drivers behind hoarding it in 2020…. This mystery will remain until the toilet paper detectives go out and track down those toilet paper hoarders and ask them that all decisive question: “Why do you hoard so much toilet paper????
Let us stay tuned for the next episode of “Toilet Paper Hoarders” coming to a grocery to a near you!
