I would like to talk to you today on a subject that we rarely talk about, butt (misspelling intended) is important to each and every one of us daily...toilet paper. It's something that I think a lot of us take for granted. You go to the bathroom, do your business, reach for the toilet paper and then leave (after flushing and washing your hands of course). So?...what's the big deal you ask? Quality. It's all in the quality.
About a couple months ago I went shopping after work. I had seen in the local flyer that there was toilet paper on sale for $2.99 (24 rolls), which is a great price. I didn't expect to see any left when I went shopping, but to my surprise, there it was. So I grabbed 2 packages. It wasn't a brand that I had bought before, but I thought "how bad can it be?" Ha! Ha! Ha!
First of all, it was only 1 ply. ONE FREAKIN' PLY!!!!! One ply toilet paper should be banned from the planet...BANNED!!!! Secondly, it felt like a paper napkin...you know, the cheap kind you buy at the $ store. Thirdly, when it gets wet, it disintegrates...poof...gone...and you're left with just your hand! I was not impressed, not at all!! Now I know why it was on sale! I had to use 4 times the amount I would normally use!
The moral of this story is, don't buy toilet paper that you have never used before! Stick to the brand that you know and love, even if it costs a bit more. Don't compromise your bathroom tissue! Take it from someone who learned the hard way.
