Went out earlier to buy a few bits from the local Tesco, loo roll being one of the required items. Shelves were empty. Decided to go to Sainsburys, shelves were empty. Only having a few rolls left indoors desperation forced me to go to Asda, shelves were empty. Local co-op same story. Ahh I thought I have a Costco card lets go there. I should also add that I have had a cold all week with a bit of a cough. The cough had gone but today for some reason came back.
By the time I got to Costco I have a dry throat, the cough makes an untimely appearance. The loo rolls had just been delivered and were being unpacked and they asked us to form an orderly queue. I was at the front minding my own business, coughing like crazy. Turn round and it was so funny, there was a huge queue behind me but the nearest person was at least 10 foot away from me. As i was coughing so much I had also started to have a flushed face. You can only imagine what they were all thinking “he has IT!”
Loo rolls in the trolley I trundled down to the tills. They were 6 or 7 trolley deep. Still coughing, sneezing into tissues. I have never seen a queue move so quick. Those in front disappeared into other queues and strangely no one queued behind me.
So I now have 45 loo rolls because you can only buy in bulk in Costco. I expect everyone in there at the same time as I was is now getting tested for IT.I have a bad cold and a stupid cough, I also have enough loo roll for the next 4 to 5 weeks. If you are desperate and need loo roll you know where to come to!
