Dear toilet paper panic buyers, I have an issue. I am on my last roll of toilet paper and at Safeway, QFC, Trader Joes, Fred Meyer and beyond there is no toilet paper to be found. So far in this unprecedented global epidemic there has been no threat from the toilet paper manufacturers about ceasing operation, or from the government about shutting down our avenues of toilet paper purchasing. The threat of shortage is due to the panic buying itself. With this consideration, the next time you feel the panic coming on, please stop to think about your friends and neighbors before making unnecessary, selfish purchases. Thank you and be well. Love, your fellow, soon to be toilet paperless, citizen.
Dear Toilet Paper Hoarders
