A tweet by Japanese user shihon on Sunday March 1 described how she'd overheard a stranger being turned away at a drugstore after it had completely sold out of toilet rolls, reported SoraNews She'd apparently bought the last pack. In a grand gesture, shihon then offered him two rolls from the pack she bought, and was even willing to give him more if he needed it. In full disclosure, she revealed that he was "her type in the looks department". She explained to him that since she lived alone, she wouldn't require that many rolls, to which he responded that he lived alone as well, which is basically a declaration of singlehood on both sides.

In Japan, the situation has spiralled to the point where people are stealing toilet paper from public restrooms , prompting officials to suspend usage of the toilets.
