My niece brought home some toilet paper from her work today and I was flabbergasted... a pack of 16 rolls but fewer sheets than ever before.
The least sheets per roll I'd seen before was 160, but these.... these have only 150. And they're not very big at that!
Talk about quality...pffftttt... there is none! Like if yer don't fold it several layers thick... well ya know where yer finger's going, dontcha? That's right, right fechin' through it. Now that mightn't be so bad if you have plenty of soap and water on hand, but me, I just feel so sorry for long fingernailed haemhorroid sufferers. I mean, there's no warning on the pack, so it's a dangerous proposition for them, isn't it.... one wipe and suddenly yer need a transfusion.
For mine, it is a part of a greater conspiracy. I mean, I haven't figured out the agenda as yet, or who's behind it exactly but I know it's a conspiracy. It's not likely to affect the wealthy, not unless they're tight arses at the supermarket, cos they can afford that real expensive scented stuff that's permeated with Aloe Vera for that gentler, more soothing wipe.
Nope, it's intended to be a pain in the arse [pun intended] to the working stiff and the poor.... though some may escape the dastardly plot because they have to reuse newspaper cut up into squares. Now that takes me back! When i was a kid it was my job to cut up Sunday's News of the World into toilet paper sized squares, which I didn't mind 'til it came to the page 3 girl with her chesty bits all exposed. I thought they'd serve a much better purpose stuck up on the inside of my wardrobe door, but dad always insisted they went in the bog with the rest of Sunday's paper.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, we need to be vigilant and keep our ears to the ground if we are to learn who the conspiracists are and what is their agenda, then take it to our elected officials to have something done about this frightening trend.
Oh, and another alarming thing I heard about was condom manufacturers using 30% less rubber per sheath. I can not confirm this because I can't afford the Viagra to fill one, but a rise in the accidental sharing of bodily fluids could indicate it too needs to be looked at.
