It is quite clear that we should all be responsible and keep distance when we are outside, as well as we stay home when there is really no need to go out during an epidemic. It is also a responsibility not to spread a panic and be selfish because other also need the same things that we need, food, disinfectants, paper wipes, etc.
An angered woman has slammed two Coles shopper for loading up their trolley with nappies amid pandemic panic-buying.
The couple filmed at the checkout of a Coles store in Penrith, Sydney’s West had their trolley filled with nappies. Toilet paper, towels, pasta, flour and rice are limited to one per person.
‘Look at this woman. Despite everything that’s occurring, she has the hide. This pair right here with a full trolley of nappies. How disgusting!’ The woman filming the couple said. She added as she moved the camera toward the checkout staff: ‘And she served them.’
With nappies not being on Coles’ list of restricted items, the shopper was dubbed ‘greedy’ for purchasing such a large quantity while necessities run in short supply as a result of panic buying.

‘I can’t believe nobody in the store said anything to the shopper. There’s no way would I be able to restrain myself or say nothing.’ One user said. Another added: ‘This made me so furious. Coles needs to make their checkout accountable. It’s part of their duty.’
‘Parents with their children in their arms are permitted to have 1 packet of wipes. It’s very simple. They believe they’re more entitled than the remaining society.’ A third said.
Nevertheless, Coles, Aldi, and Woolworths have been persuaded to introduce buying lilimts on some items after panic-buying cleared out stores of pasta, frozen food, toilet paper, rice as well as dried goods.
Because of the selfishness that exists in humans, it seems irreparable, and clearly visible during such epidemics, an elderly woman left without what she really needs. Sad indeed!
