SEINFELD: This is kind of embarrassing … I don’t have a square to spare!
NICK EICHER, HOST: Seems that life these days is imitating Seinfeld, and it may well be that missing toilet paper is the enduring meme of the COVID-19 era.
But one man in Southern California decided to do something about it. Johnny Blue stood at a busy intersection near San Diego, and held up a sign that said, “Share your toilet paper.”
He told his story to the local San Diego Union Tribune.
BLUE: I’ve seen pictures of people loading up carts, all these rolls of toilet paper, and all other kinds of supplies. And now that there’s a limited supply of that, we need to share that with people in our community.
So he set up a street corner toilet paper exchange.
BLUE: People would drive by holding it out the window. People would come up to a stoplight and toss it to me. And then, people rolled their windows down and said like, this is really great, I actually need some. And so I would say, well, I’ve got a bunch here!
Blue says he’s planning to keep encouraging “ people to be better” during these difficult times.
You know, these days we all have a spare to square!
Words to live by!
It’s The World and Everything in It.
