Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic we have seen some really ugly scenes all around the world.
One of the awkward one was when people started panic shopping of toilet paper in Australia. We’ve seen many fights for toilet paper rolls, but what happened to this guy is worth mentioning.
Well, this guy bought 132 packs of toilet paper and 150 one-litre bottles of hand sanitizer, worth £5,000 (around 10,000 Australian dollars), hoping to sell this online, but…
Hilariously, the Adelaide man was left high and dry after unsuccessfully attempting to return his stash. When the supermarket refused to refund him, he was left with £5,000 worth of essentials he doesn’t need.
According to The Telegraph, the man began hoarding goods when coronavirus panic buying hit. Drakes Supermarkets director John-Paul Drake said the man was part of a team of hoarders planning to profit from shortages caused by their own panic buying.
But the man’s attempts to sell the goods online fell flat.
Drake told ABC Radio that the man bought around £10,000 worth of goods, but couldn’t sell them when his eBay account was shut down in an effort by the online marketplace to crack down on this precise sort of behaviour. (eBay, we salute you!)
The store manager didn’t hold back in his criticism of hoarding, saying the man’s actions were “absolutely disgraceful”.
