Several people with not one but 2 large shopping trolleys. One old couple in front of me filled the conveyer belt to the cashier twice over with a pile of stuff. Anyone would think it was end of days.
Floods, fires, pandemic and locust, oh and inept governments...what could go wrong.
The media are to blame for reporting panic buying in other towns/cities, not just in the UK but down under etc, so it is the old adage, Monkey see, Monkey do!
