      Only in the US tho. I dont think the problem was even half as ridiculous in Europe. In Warsaw toilet paper didnt run out for a single day, sure people bought it more and it was running low at times, but no fights and in the end you could always buy it

    I worked at a Walmart during this time. I can remember just wandering the shelves on my break and seeing what WASNT out. We were still fully stocked on trail mix and jerky, you know, food that is shelf stable and long lasting. As well as tea and cough drops, the things one would want for a respiratory illness. It. Was. Hysterical.

      I think my favorite stuff from that period was going to a store, and seeing that there was absolutely no hand sanitizer and all the antibacterial soap was gone, but the normal soap and the rubbing alcohol was still present. Like untouched. So $40 of normal dial and $40 of rubbing alcohol later, I was set for the entire pandemic.

      It's exaggerated for me, stores in my area were out of toilet paper for only a couple weeks before they were back again. Buyers were limited on how many they could buy. The stores would randomly run out at times, but nothing like going without toilet paper for months or anything.

    Wouldn't it make _more_ sense to stock up on ridiculous amounts of *food* rather than toilet paper?
    Sure, now you've got a ton of toilet paper, but without food, you can't crap, and no crap means no use of toilet paper.
    Also, no food means starvation, which means death.
    I'm *not* saying you should stock up on ridiculous amounts of food. I'm just saying it'd make more sense to do it with food rather than toilet paper.

      Where I live in England, people stocked up on all the cheaper types of food, especially the rich... "Why buy one tin of Heinz when you could buy five tins of store brand"
      This caused many people on lesser incomes to struggle to afford buying food and slip into debt more easily; all because people got greedy and didn't care for others.

    the virus had a really weird effect on my workplace - with all the restaurants and hotels in lockdown in the UK, half our business left.
    Strangely, the amount of products Costa wanted in their deliveries shot up, which made work weird, cause we'd turn up for our shifts and everything would be done.
    We got paid for 8/12 hour shifts, with no work... so we'd genuinely walk into work and could see people washing walls and the ceiling.

    I remember at the start of the pandemic, my Wal-Mart was completely looted of all toilet paper, medical supplies, canned foods, and more. I was starting my junior year in high school when news began to circulate about Covid coming in from China and at first I thought that if it reached the US, it would easily be contained by the CDC, but before I knew it, my school was closed, my town and state went into lockdown, and I had to finish the rest of my junior year online on Zoom, which by itself was a strange experience. I never thought I would live through an full blown pandemic, especially in the 21st century. I underestimated the power of nature, the food and supply chain, and human stupidity. I hope that we as a society learn from all this so future generations won't have to go through the crazy BS that we had to deal with. Also I had no idea that the Great Toilet Paper Shortage of 2020 started in Australia, I thought it began in the US lol

    As someone who has moderating and leading zoom classes as part of their job, yes, if you want all attendees to get into the room, you will risk having someone leak the code somewhere. Hence why I only recommend it for educational use in adult education, more private meetings with a lower risk of someone pulling a prank or whatever. It's easy to use, but also easy to annoy. It has had many quality updates in the last year tho, and my job of explaining everything to my new colleagues has become a lot easier since half of it doesn't consist of literal witchcraft, satanic sacrifice rituals and interface bug workarounds.
    Tho, to this day, we still sacrifice a goat or two before every super important meeting with more than 80 attendees and pray to the Omnissiah so it doesn't crash.

    Considering the CEO of Australia literally went ahead and (most likely himself) OK'd the creation of quarantine camps, where people who were sick were forced to stay there until they & their families were all clear, makes the line said at 3:51 either funny, ironic, aged _very_ poorly or the combo of the three.

    In all honesty, after seeing the toilet paper panic, I STILL feel the need to stockpile a bit. Like, there's plenty now, but it's cheap, it never expires, and you KNOW the panic, hoarding, and shortage WILL happen again the next time there's a crisis.

    Never got the toilet paper thing. We dont have bidets in the US, usually, but the general consensus on taking a shit and finding out you dont have toilet paper around is to just hop in the shower. Idk how in a nation where we have people masturbating with showerheads we didnt think theyd properly clean a butthole THAT WILL ALSO CLEAN THE REST OF THEIR BODIES.

    I remember when all this started, I already had a pack or two of toilet paper, I raced to the store at 5 in the morning to be there when the doors opened so I could get all the food I can to last a few weeks in case the stores get shut down/they run out of food. Oh shit, a huge crowd has formed in front of the store before I even got there. Doors open, everyone rushes in and starts shouting and shit, I make a mad dash towards the non perishables and.........There's no one there. They all ran for the toilet paper, they all left only minutes later with all the toilet paper while I enjoyed a nice stress free shopping trip. Was actually pretty calming when the store quieted down.

    I unfortunantly worked retail during this time (still do actually) luckily I didnt work a a big chain supermarket and just a small local one. But by the end first week it wasnt just toilet paper that we didnt have anymore. Canned soup and other things also flew off the shelf, emptiest I've ever seen the shelves at the store, also the most amount of people I've seen working at the store. However the busiest day wasnt until at least a month after lockdowns in australia were announced. April 25th 2020 I had a line for 3 straight hours half the time I couldn't see the end of the line. A reminder we are a small local supermarket. 3 straight hours. I still wear a mask these days but it's mainly because I enjoy not smiling at customers
    It's amazing how we sold out of toilet paper but still had plenty of news corps newspapers left

    Wow I didn't know that the toilet paper crisis was this huge over there. I live in France, and I don't think we ran out of anything during the lockdowns. I do remember huge lines in front of our local supermarket. But we just went to one 20 minutes on foot further. And we usually only had to share the supermarket with 5 other shoppers or less. We had a great time.
