    What do you think should happen to the businesses that charged $5-10 for a loaf of bread during...

    the QLD floods? Our friends said the local shop in Brisbane put bread up to $5 a loaf, another shop $10 yet one bakery gave it away free. I was disgusted that they could do such a thing to their customers during a major disaster.

    These businesses can be dealt with very easily.......when the crisis passes all the people have to do is remember who helped and who took advantage.  Praise those who offered a helping hand and punish those who offered greed and larceny by finding somewhere else to do business.

    They should face the same charges as looters. My grandfather was in the 1913 flood of the Ohio valley.  He told similar stories of greed but he also told stories of courage and compassion.  The people who bought bread from them will remember. Every time the store owners see one of those customers....they will be reminded of their shameful greed.

    Scalping them would do. Or impale them and leave them as an example to show others the importance of compassion. That might work in a strange way.

    When all is back to normal, these greedy people should be shunned by all. Seems that during the crisis they cared only for themselves, shun them and run them out of business, shop at the bakery that gave bread away. One good turn deserves another?

    It shows us that we are far away from the race that we wish to be,,,far far away, we are but babies on the real scheme of things, I beleive it all goes around, sometimes we have to spend to gain even more, its quite amazing that some of the people that have lost everything and this was probly not the first time,,,just say "Oh we are ok, its just another day, and we'll get through it, (with a grin) helps us to really see the big picture.
    That we are all struggling on all levels all at the same time.

    Awful tragedy, and it's everywhere, global.

    they should be either shut down or boycotted. i think that any business that does things like this proves that they are only there for the money and they don't care about the consumer.

    Why pay that much for bread when you can make it yourself?

    It's easy to blame the people selling the bread ,what about the people who are supposed to be more responsable like the  government!

    An ounce of preperation is worth a pound of aggravation
