Be mindful of others

Toilet paper is the tip of the iceberg.

Quit hoarding toilet paper, you are all pathetic and should be ashamed of yourselves.

You people are the ones that are rapidly ruining the island I grew up on. Here I am thinking about poop again. How ironic! Or even better, move back to wherever you came from. You’re acting like children spoiled, rich children, which you probably were.

— David Mish
