This is what it is like here. Shortages of lots of things but toilet paper is king. If you're not there at the shops within a few minutes of opening time, you miss out.
I don't think some people will be satisfied till they have about 300 rolls squirrelled away. :roll:

How are things in England?

Sorry about that.
Staying on the serious side, I saw a clip of two women in a store in Oz.
One had a buggy full of the last toilet rolls in the store and the other one wanted one.
Brawl ensued.
In defense of the lady with the buggy full, she had an enormous caboose, so maybe she needs more than most.

It's getting like that in quite a few places, beachy. It's no joke.
Still no toilet paper on the shelves in any suburb near here, hasn't been for a week.
My daughter was down to their last roll so lined up at 6am at her local woolies and was able to snag a pack. They were all gone by 6.05am though.
It is ridiculous but some people will be 'sitting pretty', so to speak, if we did go into any kind of lock down. They have enough for the next 6 months. :lol:

Of more worry is both my daughters & their families are booked on a Sth Pacific cruise leaving next week from Sydney.
Now the gov't has advised against going on any cruises at the moment.
Main worry is half the ports might close to cruise ships, but older daughter was offered a cabin upgrade to window. Was rapt, is loathe to dip out on that and the extra credit offering.
Me, I'd probably take up the cruise company on the offer to reschedule.

I think my middle daughter should give up on trying for a holiday in 2020. They booked into Merimbula in jan, only to have all roads in impassable with fires, so had to cancel. Now the cruise... :?
