Images of empty shelves where toilet paper normally sits in grocery stores across the United States capture the fear that has swept the country amid Coronavirus pandemic.
People are preparing to be trapped in ther houses for weeks and some of them have began hoarding toilet paper.
„I feel like an idiot, because I think all the people buying toilet paper are idiots, but now I’m buying toilet paper, because they’re buying toilet paper, and I don’t want to run out of toilet paper, so now I’m one of the idiots buying toilet paper“, explained one Redditor phenomenon of contagious panic shopping.
Unfortunately, because of people hoarding toilet paper fearing that they will not be able to wipe their asses, some are now in real problems.
Some are even calling police saying they’ve run out of toilet paper.
The Newport Police Department in Oregon put out a notice on Facebook urging residents to stop making emergency calls due to a toilet paper shortage.
“It’s hard to believe that we even have to post this,” the police wrote. “Do not call 9-1-1 just because you ran out of toilet paper. You will survive without our assistance.”
Apparently, things in United States are getting shitty.
Some have even turned to looting.
„People are looting toilet paper from rest stops in Nebraska. You people are fucking insane“, complained one Twitter user.
These are the horror stories of people desperately trying to find toilet paper.
