Wollongong motorist spots toilet paper hidden in a suburban garage next to a flashy Mercedes 

‘Don’t be like this w**ker’: Furious motorist spots an enormous haul of toilet paper hidden in a suburban garage next to a $180k Mercedes

  • A Mercedes owner hoarded at least 24 packs of Quilton toilet paper
  • They stacked the toilet paper packs in their garage, covering most of the wall 
  • An outraged passerby snapped a photo of the toilet paper and posted it online 
  • Supermarkets limit toilet paper purchases to one pack in parts of the country

A Mercedes driver has been slammed for hoarding at least 24 packs of toilet paper while supermarkets have limits on the item amid panic buying chaos.    

The enormous stockpile was spotted next a Mercedes C63s coupe in the garage of a home in Wollongong, NSW on Sunday. 

An outraged passerby took a photo of the stash and posted it to Reddit with the caption: ‘Don’t be like this w**ker!’

The toilet paper was stacked so high and wide that it covered up most of the wall in the garage. 

More than 20 packs of toilet paper were visible in the photo – but more may have been covered by the German car. 

The vehicle was a Mercedes C63s coupe, which costs $179,015.70 drive away in NSW. 

Redditors agreed the toilet paper stockpile was excessive given the item’s current scarcity in Australian supermarkets. 

‘Probably expected to make a profit on it. Now stuck with the consequences of greed,’ one person wrote.  

Around 24 packs were visible in the photo, stacked next to a Mercedes C63s coupe, which costs $179,015.70 drive away in NSW

The sighting of the Wollongong stockpile comes after a mountain of 10,000 rolls of toilet paper was discovered in Macquarie Fields in Sydney’s south-west last month.    

Elie Abousleiman and two of his colleagues stumbled upon the mountain of 48-packs in a park and posted a video of the bizarre scene to Facebook. 

Convenience store owner Celia Deng, 47, had imported the rolls from China to supply her two shops during the COVID-19 supply shortage and she and her staff were in the process of moving the shipment into her home.

She said her toilet paper – which retails at $1.99 for a four-pack – would help the elderly and disadvantaged in the community who couldn’t find any in supermarkets, and that her profit margin on the product was only five per cent.

Supermarket chain Woolworths limits its customers to two packs of toilet paper per purchase amid panic buying of the item. 

Meanwhile, Coles supermarkets in Victoria limit their customers to just one packet. 

Toilet paper flew of shelves at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and has once again come into high demand as a second wave of infections hits Victoria.
