We have that big roll that you have to tear on the serrated edge of the dispenser. It doesnt tear.

I'm thinking about picking up one of those free standing TP dispensers and leaving it in my cube. Then I'll just set that up in the bathroom when I need to go. I may even pick up a magazine rack.



Thats the design, they don't do it as bad if you load the paper over the top.

Uni has a rotating thingy which has 4 rolls.

The rolls ALWAYS jam and you end up breaking off at most 3 squares.

The TP is always 1 ply stuff which rips your arse up and is PAIN.

I remember visiting the Soviet Union back in the mid-80's. There was one public restroom (in an airport I think) that had a stack of paper sheets in the stall.

Not toliet paper, just PAPER. It reminded me of the wood pulp-like stuff they use in Kindergarden and the early grades... the stuff that has wood chips and splinters in it.

That was one of those "take to your grave" memories for this "Decadent American".

I remember that stuff from school, I used to have to use it when my nose bled, it nearly made it worse..


Protest the low quality, use paper towels and clog the toilet.

My elementary school had those things that are too big for the roll, so they shape the cardboard so you can't turn it at all.

Now my HS has those things that have two huge rolls of TP, that let you tear about a foot off, and are supposed to tear against a serrated edge but never do.

My sister went to Romania when she was a teenager, they just had a hole in a cement floor and a flat wad of TP that was basically burlap. She brought some back to show us, pretty hardcore stuff...you could use it for kindling to start a fire..
