    Hahaha yes I agree but I think they are really just joking about the 24,000 price tag. Just someone being stupid for a laugh, probably wants to be famous

    This seems to be an East coast issue...I went to the shops today and everything was as normal.
    The guy selling loo paper for 24k hopefully will be named and shamed. The one selling one sheet for 1k is clearly a troll.
    I have to admit though I have been buying extra supplies like toilet paper, dog food for the muts, extra meat, rice,pasta etc...because you'd be silly not to take the most basic precautions. I included cough medicine, puffers, panadol etc.
    The most important prep I did though was made myself 70 bottles of vodka and bought 70 bottles of coke....that should get me through a 14 day quarantine.

    The world is full of ignorance.

    And here I was thinking this thread was going to be about old mate @Tezza's ZB .

    No need to use a hand sanitizer........WASH your hands with soap and water........And it's far better for removing germs.

    We have just got back from Costco. They sell their toilet paper in 48 roll packs. They are preventing people from
    buying more than 2 packs and there were quite a few of them. How long do these people think this epidemic is
    going to last for?

    Maybe its empty because there no imports coming into Australia from china, therefor stocks running low. I wounder who started the panic buying? Probably the Chinese, I seen one buying boxes of handwipes maybe its the new thing they selling them to china instead of baby formula.

    It was said they are using it inside their facial mask as a extra filtering system.

    Kleenex, Sorbent and Quilton certainly are made here in Oz.

    My daughter works in retail and they have run out of toilet paper , hand sanitizer, flour , bottled water ,tissues and rice . The only rice on the shelf is basmati rice as it grown in india and the chinese won't use it .
    One chinese customer thought it was funny because she coughed in front of my daughter without covering her mouth, she looked at my daughter laughed and said corona virus . She quickly changed her tune when she called her a dirty asian c#nt.

    Wow. On one hand they plead with the public not to be racially prejudiced, then on the other hand they go around doing idiotic things like that.
    I would have given her a swift backhander for that little stunt.

    No prizes for guessing what nationality were trying to bulk buy toilet paper from Costco.
