Despite people turning to social media to shame those selfish enough to be stockpiling supplies, this still seems to be a problem, especially in Australia.
One customer even had the gall to waltz right back into the store after doing the unimaginable, but he wasn't prepared for the response he got.

Stockpiling is still happening in certain parts of the world.

And as the virus continues to infect the globe...

Amid all the panic and hysteria...
via: TwitterShopping and stockpiling seem to have shifted into the same meaning.
Many panicked shoppers have been taking to supermarkets to stockpile on supplies.
via: GettyIn apocalyptic scenes all over the world, supermarkets have been overcrowded with people frantically stocking up on soaps, sanitizers, toilet rolls, canned goods, and other non-perishable foods.
People seem to think that buying a years' worth of toilet paper will protect them from the virus...

It's getting completely out of hand.People have been literally emptying supermarkets' shelves of their products, forcing large companies to put regulations in place to prevent people from buying too many things. Yeah, this is the world we're currently living in.
Some shoppers seem to forget that other people also need to buy these items...

People with families to provide for have also been hit hard.

It's one of the sadder realities of panic buying...
via: GettyThat those who need it the most are the ones who are left with nothing.
We've seen multiple instances of people left sobbing at the supermarket...

People have taken to social media to express their disgust.And it seems to be gradually making people think twice about panic buying.
Although there's always going to be ignorant people out there.

That's what one Australian shopper did, and now he wants his money back!
via: TwitterHe went into one of South Australia's Drakes' supermarkets and tried to make a deal.
What he wanted was crazy...
via: TwitterThe supermarket director said: "He said he wanted to get a refund on 150 32-packs of toilet paper and 150 units of one-liter sanitizer."
Mr. Drake said he couldn't believe his ears when the shopper asked to return the items he had purchased.
via: TwitterThe receptionist called Mr. Drake over to deal with his request.
The customer wasn't expecting this response from Mr. Drake, which can be seen in the video.
via: YoutubeDrake said: "This sort of behavior is disgraceful. He is the sort of person that's causing the problem in the whole country."
But that didn't stop the shopper from trying to make a deal.
via: YoutubeHe came in the next day to try his luck. Drake said: "He had all the receipts, he came back and offered me a 30 percent discount."
It's been revealed that the shopper would have had to come into the store 150 times to make the purchases.
via: YoutubeMr. Drake continued: "We're all about supporting the local community. I want products bought here to stay here but this is ridiculous."
