An Aldi shopper has taken the ultimate jab at a woman who was buying "$200 worth of toilet paper" at the checkout in front of her, and her 'slam dunk' has gone viral.

Posting in a popular Aldi Facebook group, the woman explained that she was at her local supermarket with her service dog, when the shopper in question asked her about her dog.

"The lady in front of me at checkout had about $200 worth of toilet paper in her shopping trolley. With an attitude she asked me what type of dog I had," the woman wrote.

"I told her it was my service dog. Then she got real snarky and said, I knew that. What type of service? I said he was an ALD."

By now she says her dog was being "super friendly" and licking the other woman's face and hands when she asked: "What is an ALD?"

"I told her it stood for A**e Licking Dog. She said A**e Licking Dog? I said yeah, he has been trained to lick my bum clean, because I can't seem to be able to find toilet paper because of hoarders. The cashier completely lost it."

The woman's take down blew up on the Facebook group and has since been shared over 4.5K times, with people calling her response "priceless".

"Well done," one person said.

"That's gold," was another response, while a third wrote: "This just made my day."

It's unclear whether the shopper responded to the jibe, or whether she may have simply been purchasing her usual amount of toilet paper for a larger family.

During the height of the pandemic in 2020, many Aussies took to social media to call out people shaming them for buying what they needed.

One mum revealed previously how she had been shopping at Woolworths for her eight children, when another woman shamed her at the register after looking at her items and “shaking her head”.

"None of the stuff I bought had restrictions on them and no it’s not for my stockpile, it’s just stuff I could not get last week," she wrote.

Panic buying had once again taken hold of Victorian supermarkets after the state entered a five-day "circuit breaker" lockdown last week.

Coles and Woolworths were forced to again implement purchase limits across the state

At the time Woolworths implemented a two item per customer, per shop rule on a number of items, including toilet paper.
