I was checking out today at CVS when an elderly man with a walker came in and asked if there was any toilet paper in the store for him and his sick wife. He had been trying to find some all day. The poor man looked like he was on the brink of tears. I felt so badly for him that I offered to help him find some, I offered to drop it off if he wanted to go home.
I walked him back to his car and found his wife waiting with a oxygen tank in the car. It had taken him so long to get to the counter from the door and back to his car, I could just imagine the day he had been having. It took me almost an hour to track some down for them. Remember this when you’re hoarding all of these products and remember to check on and make sure that those who have a harder time providing for themselves have everything they need to make it through the day.
