    Did you actually read the crap you posted?

    While other countries have run low on toilet paper, Australians are stockpiling despite there being no threat of running out as 60 per cent of the country’s toilet paper is manufactured locally.

    Chill out mate, I used a figure I'd read elsewhere... there are all different figures around;

    https://www.afr.com/companies/retail/panic-toilet-paper-buying-pointless-say-experts-20200306-p547gd
    The point is we make it here and there is no shortage of bog roll, apart from fuckheads buying too much.

    So we've established that you don't read the crap you link to. Fair enough.

    No all you established is I missed a figure in an article... hard day at "the office" mate? ... or have you got cupboards full of bog roll? :)

    No, I was just establishing the value of your posts. Without the news.com.au links they rate higher by three and a half bog rolls.

    Anyone been able to find any foam hand soap refills, that aren't in individual containers ?
    Not even Officeworks has them in stock.

    Not certain about that... I'm unsure you have the appropriate credentials. :weirdo:

    I'd offer them as evidence, but they are in my other jacket.

    eh, press the screen with your knuckle.

    how is this not objectively better than a normal checkout? might be different elsewhere, but there are a whole bunch of self servce machines at my local woolies.

    One check out operator, who disinfects their hands between each customer, versus being in a closer proximity to people walking passed and through, and touching a screen that isn't disinfected between uses.

    Dammit, looks like time for another scary pandemic statement about lockdown, only 11.5 million bog rolls sold at Woolies this week.

    Pretty much yeah. Don't know about Coles and the others, their CEO's don't seem to care about keeping shoppers dates updated.
    There was of course other things the Woolies CEO said about screens, product restrictions etc but no one cares about any of that, it's all about the bog roles!

    I don't know what you're reading but...


    I'm getting update emails all the time... but wtf does a supermarket CEO owe you an update on anything?

    Look, it can be embarrassing for some when they finally realise the world does revolve around me, but there is no reason to go all Attack Cat on me.

    What a hard luck guy, seems he really could do with a break. Maybe he needs a gastro outbreak, that will easy some of his load.

    A nice, virus-friendly, non-metallic surface that 100% of people touch is "objectively better"?

    I think at any point, a supermarket is going to be a terrible place for this sort of situation. Whether checking out by operator or touch screen, the many thousands of people congregating on a central location makes it shitty no matter what.

    Everything seems to have normalised around where I am as well, I can't think of anything that I needed last night when I did the weekly shop that wasn't available.

    Except for dutch licorice....... who the hell is hoarding it all?
