I left the house today for the first time since the panic buying was reported and must say I was shocked at selfishness shown by some of our community . There was very little choice so my weekly shop turned into that will do for tonight and that will get me through tomorrow . The amount of food people are storing will see a lot of waste in the months to come

I elected shopping the same but Im not bringing the usual shop home . I'll have to go out and get some more stuff at the end of the week and have decided I will target ingredients rather than pre packed , its a long time since I made fresh pasta or knocked up my own curry . Im actually quite looking forward to it .

Just got back home. It took me 3 different markets, but I got everything on my shopping list, including 2 packs of 12 rolls of toilet paper.

They were letting 50 people in at a time, which was working well. I managed to get into the first 50 (although they were letting people over 65 in prior to the official opening time).

I just noticed on one of the toilet Roll outer package in has a note saying 12 rolls = 12,000 sheets of paper = 12 weeks supply for one person. I assume they have added this to try and make a point during this situation. My wife is questioning their statement, as she gets through a roll abut every 3 days. Is that normal for a woman - I don't know? She claims it is.

Edit: I see transformerman has confirmed this in a post above!

I'm afraid you won't catch me out on that one today. I made a mistake, for which I apologised, yesterday. In the current crisis, I look on all politician equally lovingly at the moment. Even the beardie ones.

Ummm, I actually don't know, or have any desire to know what she does with all the toilet paper. I suspect something like this might add to the problem.

Some things are best left unanswered!
