True story; On a mission on Monday, I went to 6 stores before I could find paper towels. I was looking for paper towels because I was out of paper towels. I don’t need toilet tissue, but couldn’t find any of that either ! I bought two rolls, that’s all just two. If you’re hoarding, you suck ! You don’t have to continue being an Ass Hat, Stop Hoarding, Stop it Now !
