What will these folk going mad do when they do run out 😂

 

Jump up and down and curse and swear at all of those selfish [email protected] who have stockpiled them all.

 

And I ain't joking either.

The year is 2042. Kim from Oxgangs sits separating the ply on the last roll of Nicky bog roll. Quartering each sheet, she winces at the pain of holding her bowels for her bi-weekly dump.

Or right time to start on the 500 hundred kitchen roll just in case I ran out of bog roll 😂

Imagine the devastation when they need to open the smart price version

One way to stop this bog roll panic buying is for the shops only to stock this.

Like wiping your ring piece with broken glass.

Stuff I had at school was more like grease proof paper. Didn’t clean, just spread it around.

We've done some good stocking up on things, ensuring we have enough to go without shopping for 2 weeks in case we need to isolate. Not bought any bread,  a couple of bags of flour and some yeast. A few tins of soup and beans. Some UHT milk. We will. Ow just carry on with a normal shop each week but rotate stock. Also got plenty of emergency cider as well, just in case.


You’ll probably chuck all your panic buys in the bin in a couple of months having used none of it. 
 

Stick to normal shopping patterns and the supermarkets can then stick to their normal stocking patterns. There’s no need for anyone to act like they live in a post apocalyptic world.

Too sensible an idea. I’d imagine a hell of a lot of ‘panic bought’ goods will end up chucked. 
 

Supermarkets are making a killing off this, too. I’d imagine Amazon profits are through the roof, too. Folk staying home, bored, will shop as a form of entertainment. 
 

Whatever happened to ‘keep calm and carry on’?

Super, Well done you. Along with many others..

I watched a little old lady searching for toilet roll and bread today. Had to put the basket back. Probably going to walk a couple of miles up the road to find another shop... what's the bets that's all sold out as well by folks stocking up... 

Hope she's alright... 

 

If there's vulnerability folks out there, think of them guys...

Seen a report from Rome on sky news this morning, the reporter was standing in front of an empty St. Peter's Square, anyway she mentioned that even on day 6 of the lockdown people in Rome were not panic buying.

 

My local Premier Store has now got a notice saying that people are only allowed one item of cleaning products, toiletries, pasta & rice.

 

I think it's only a matter of time before the supermarkets will bring in similar measures, indeed I think some are starting to, because it's clear a lot of people are not acting responsibly so they'll have to be told they can't have 20 packets of pasta or 30 tins of beans, there is plenty of food and supplies for everybody, if some people stopped acting like selfish dicks, there'd be plenty for everyone.

I bought a 20 pk of super soft tissues from Sainsbury for a small outlay of £2.00 odd,  now selling on ebay a £5.00 a pop. If anyone wants one at a special JKB (paid members) price of £2.50 pm me. :laugh: I've never known panic like this. The fact that shop customers are fighting over the last pack of bog roll on the shelf is quite entertaining. Makes up for missing the Hearts game.

The mentality of stockpiling something with an infinite shelf life doesn't make sense to me.

Well said Boris. Our societal cohesion seem to be toilet paper thin. It’s ****ing embarrassing.

I’m not sure they are making a killing. Maybe initially. They have to employ more staff to cope and it’s only certain lines that run out which then take time to restock. I would imagine they would prefer it to be as it was. Again amazon has sold out of the main lines and will struggle to restock - believe me I sell on Amazon, they are slow at this.

You are right about keeping calm and carrying on - where’s the stoicism gone?

Someone at work knows someone who sells a hand sanitizer as main business.

 

They are going to retire early on what they are making.

If they can employ a few more overworked, minimum wage staff, then they're already doing well. I guess it depends on supply chains, which I guess governments and businesses will do their best to maintain. 
 

As for stoicism - it doesn’t create ‘likes’ on Instagrams.

Stop buying so many toilet rolls. You don't need them.

Make sure you get alcohol-based sanitiser otherwise its useless.

Just in Tesco, hardengreen. No toilet roll, many shelves empty. 

 

Thing is, looking about I don't see anyone with lots of one thing.. 

 

Is there some supermarket conspiracy to leave shelves empty to wind up the public to panic buy more? 

 

 

I can guarantee we are NOT hoarding toilet roll in the warehouse. What little we do get delivered is sold out before 8am.

I finished night shift this morning, was in the store for 8:30ish... I can confirm what you are saying. Place was busy... what little stock you had was flying off the shelf. 

 

Finally stores are doing something about it as I seen them taking loo roll off folk with more that two packs.

I was in Tesco Eskbank about 11am (as I am every Sunday). 
 

Much busier that usual and the checkout girl said it had been like that since she started at 5:30am. 
 

No mince and very little other meat, no pasta, bog roll, rolls etc. 
 

I asked a guy stacking shelves when the were re-stocking. Tonight he said ‘but it will all be gone in half an hour’.  
 

Utter dicks panic buying.

They should get a bumper delivery, publicise when they are expecting it and call it Brown Friday. They’ll make a fortune off the mugs.
