my covid19 toilet paper


during my throes of my covid 19 infection i realized we were going through all of our toilet paper rapidly since i mainly had gastrointestinal symptoms initially
luckily i had just bought a 6 pack of toilet paper on my last shopping trip before i got sick

as our supply dwindled i got creative in ways to save the use of this scarce commodity
ill spare you the details
i also researched some survivalist websites for suggestions
we started accumulation of newspaper like material just in case

we tried to get some on our instacart order from the grocery store
there was none available
the same from the pharmacy

i went on amazon
there was some toilet paper on there but they were back ordered or not in stock

6/8/12 Family Rolls Toilet Paper,Ultra Soft Roll Toilet Paper,280-Sheet per roll,3-Layers Standard Rolls,Gentle Toilet Tissue Soft Paper Towels Enviro Friendly Recycled Bath Paper,White (6rolls)

there was this short non descriptive ad for toilet paper for rolls of 6 for about $12
i jumped on it and ordered it
the notice came
its back ordered but will be shipped soon
a few weeks ago a notice arrived its on its way
i waited
i waited
i waited
it said it was coming from china
a slow boat from china i presumed
after several weeks it never arrived
i notified amazon
they said they would refund me my money
a few days it arrived
looking like this below

then i opened it
there were 12 of these little bitty baby rolls of toilet paper
the one on the right is the one i bought from trader joes
the one on the left is the one i received on the slow boat from china

all i could say was
well ive been had
my wife she and i had a good laugh out of it
we even come up with a few joke lines
ill spare you them also

any suggestions for what to do with this
we arent disappointed
we got our toilet paper
we got our refund i think
ive decided not to complain if i dont get my refund
i guess i cant complain
we got a much needed laugh out of it

i think we will keep them as our backup in case we run out of our adult toilet paper
