Friday Fictioneers: Thank You SO Much
I was on the hunt for toilet paper. I fear inconsiderate hoarders, who care only for themselves have taken them all.
Therefore I tell you this story . . .
A turned the corner of the TP aisle, I saw a lady with two packages, one under each arm.
“Do you need both,” I asked.
I expected her to say, “Yes I do.”
Instead she smiled, and said, “No” and handed me one of her packages.
I realize I had a package of eight rolls of paper towels.
Oh well, I thought, I have plenty of backup.
“Thank you so much,” I said.

This is not your typical science fiction novel. It’s set on a planet in the Pegasus Constellation, but there are no monster aliens, and no wars in space.
This trilogy is about people like Lieutenant Jessica M. Hewitt, Rona Montgomery, and High Priest Adumie who, like all of us, struggle with self-worth, rejection, and love relationships.
This trilogy might just be your next read.

Hey we all have to cooperate
So very true. ;0)
Pretty soon we’ll be buying other things with toilet tissue. “Three sheets for a chicken. Pass.”
With toilet paper in short supply, I have started letting the dock plants grow in my garden. Maybe I will be able to trade them.
Ha Ha. I presume you planed for the large leaves.
Something similar happened to me last week. Turned into the aisle and a fellow customer, straining to reach the last two packs on the high shelf gave one to me. Wow, that was unexpected.
He was a white night helping a damsel in distress.
My white knight was an elderly lady 🙂
Opps. A princess helping another princess. ;0)
Yea. I’m chuckling. How about fairy godmothers? Or dowagers?
Oh yes. You have a fairy godmother! Good for you. Take good care of her. ;0)
Better than nothing!
No one wants to run out but we could be erring on the side of ridiculous. 😉
Ah yes, the ridiculous. It’s what help in this time of seriousness.
Now that’s a real fiction, that she handed you a packet of toilet papers. It’s dog eat dog here. 🙂
LOL. No really . . . Okay I knocked her down and forcibly took only one package. Should I have taken both?
Ha ha, just don’t flush them!
Too late. Sorry. :0l
I confess that the panic buying of TP leaves me baffled, once again, by my fellow beings.
Cool story, but sadly not credible.
I wouldn’t lie to you. I don’t know you that well.
I was joking.
If it is a true story then I apologise unreservedly!
And I like your response.
No. No. I was joking too.
It is a true story.
I can see the confusion since most of my stories are made up and are therefore lies, which means I often lie to you. But you keep coming back. ;0) Thanks.
I also couldn’t understand the panic buying mentality. We didn’t partake and fortunately have had no problems. The crazy thing is why did the lady take it all in the first place? She obviously realised the stupidity of her action
At least she was nice enough to give me one.
I hear it’s just the opposite in our supermarkets. I’ve switched to the village shop. Fully stocked!
Ah man! Maybe you could send me some? I mean, how much could it cast? Maybe you could use your bonus check.
Ah, the kindness of strangers comes to mind.
Nice thought. ;0)
Over these last 4 weeks how insane the changes in our habits have become, anthropologists will look back at this time as a golden age of study of human behaviour. Good stuff.
Interesting look at the situation. Makes me curious of what they might say.
Ha… in Sweden there is no lack of toilet paper… we make much more than we need, so we send them all over the world
I think it’s time for a visit to Sweden. I even have friends there.
Too bad I can’t afford the trip. ;0(
Nice twist. A friend of mine saw a guy with two grocery carts chock full of TP, looking around like he’d take on anyone who wanted to challenge him 🙂
Too bad the store didn’t stand up for their other customers.
I think they’ve put some limits on some items now. People were just losing their minds!
I just hear Castco received an full shipment. Maybe things are starting to turn around.
