Videos went viral of people stocking up large bundles of toilet paper rolls, sanitizing wipes and paper towels.

And now, they are regretting their decision of stocking up piles of toilet paper. Costco, the American wholesaler has refused to accept returns of toilet paper, paper towels, sanitizing wipes, Lysol, rice, and water. And the internet is praising Costco for their apt decision, like never before. Photos of Costco’s refusal posters are everywhere on Twitter.

Ensuring 100% customer satisfaction is Costco’s target but not this time. They usually accept returns on everything except tobacco products and alcohol. But this time, they took the right step. The hoarders need to realize their fault.

People expressed their love for Costco on Twitter. They are really happy with Costco’s decision.

Some people have suggested the hoarders to donate their unnecessary stuff to the needy folks. This way they can help others.

So, the hoarders are being punished for their actions. But what is the main reason behind this hoarding frenzy? Stocking up food, sanitizers, and water makes sense, but why toilet paper? Toilet paper is not as essential as food and water for surviving.

Andrea Greenman said that stocking up toilet paper has a connection with losing control over things. She is the president of the Contemporary Freudian Society. Greenman has also suggested a connection between hoarding toilet paper and a child’s anal phase.

According to her, a child finds it easy to assert control while maintaining cleanliness around B.M.s. And in this current Coronavirus situation, people felt a sense of losing control over their cleanliness. So, that has given them a regressive push to that earlier time of childhood. They thought to stock up a lifetime supply of toilet paper! So, they will not have to depend on others for their cleanliness.

Do you think others should follow Costco’s example?
