As Jesse and I get ready to move, I've been really careful with our purchasing of consumable goods, and one of these tightly-controlled substances is toilet paper. After all, we certainly don't need to transport a bunch of TP across the country with us. So, one day at the store, I grabbed a 4-pack of toilet paper of a different brand than the 12-packs I usually buy, because it was on sale. Oh, you can see where this is going.
When I got home and opened the package to stock the bathrooms with the TP, I discovered that I had accidentally bought 1-PLY TOILET PAPER.
I don't really understand why such a thing exists. Is there anyone out there -- anyone at all -- who actually likes it?
There must be, or stores wouldn't sell it. So I have a few theories about who out there is buying 1-ply toilet paper.
People Like Me, Who Buy It Accidentally
You're at the grocery store. You're tired. You're in a hurry. You see that the name-brand TP is on sale for the first time ever, and you decide to treat yourself, just this once. Silly fool; you should have read the label more closely!
Now you're really up shit creek!
Businesses that buy in bulk
I happen to like Industrial Blend Coffee, but that's neither here nor there.
It's too bad I bought the Kindle version of Fifty Shades, as it would have made GREAT toilet paper.
People Who Don't Really Understand Math
He thinks saving money is more important than a satisfying wipe. Must be in college or something. Someday he'll learn that, like hiring a maid or paying for your girlfriend's birth control, certain things are just worth the money.
Did I miss anyone?
And if you're one of the freaks who actually prefers 1-ply over 2-ply, please let me know. After all, I don't want to be associating with Communists.
Stalin will never admit his preference for 2-ply, that symbol of Western decadence!
