Cheap Bastards

The quality of the paper product in my office has been on the decline for quite some time. I can handle the printer paper that is only one slight grade above news print. I will tolerate the paper towels that you could read through. I understand why we don't even get paper plates anymore. But what I will not stand for is the fact that the toilet paper in my office is now ONE PLY and SO CHEAP it can no longer support its own weight on the giant roll. Thus, anyone who wants to use the restroom, rather than getting a single long piece of TP, ends up with a handful of teeny tiny scraps of toilet paper. We want toilet paper, not confettie! I know you all are trying to save a few bucks but really this is getting ridiculous. Buy some two ply you cheap bastards!

You're singing to the choir. My office recently swichted to 1/2 ply toilet paper as well. Even though the company saves money by buying cheapie toilet paper, the amount of extra time I spend in the bathroom trying to make sure I get all the paper off my butt is costing them even more. I should bring this up at the next company meeting. :)

I once heard some advice that really stuck with me (not literally like this TP problem):

No matter how hard times get and how tight money is, you should never scrimp on anything that comes in contact with your naughty parts.

LOL, I am going to send a note to the top office that says that. Maybe then they will buy some decent toilet paper.
