Friday Flop: The Toilet Paper Edition
My children haven’t seen a box of Kraft macaroni and cheese since the last time they were at their grandmother’s house. At lunch, my son requests “spaghetti rings and meatballs in tomato sauce” because he’s never seen a can of Chef Boyardee Spaghetti O’s in our cupboards.
More often than not, I buy generic.
But when it comes to toilet paper, I am a brand snob.
Actually, it’s not the brand I’m concerned with as much as I am the quality. We have pampered behinds in my household and I insist that those behinds be wiped with soft, quilted, multi-ply toilet paper. I will give up a lot in the name of a bargain, but a comfortable butt is not one of them.
Last week, my husband – who actually taught me everything I know about good toilet paper – lost his damn mind. And our butts are paying the price.
My husband bought 24 rolls of this crap.
Now, I have read reviews of Scott toilet paper on the Internet that suggest that this is the greatest toilet paper ever. They claim it’s economical and good for your plumbing. They rave about the fact that it is lint free.
All of these things might be true.
But it’s also true that if you insist on “only using a few squares”, you’re going to wind up with urine on your hands. At the very least.
I can literally see through this toilet paper. The fact that I have to use a piece as long as my body every time I use the bathroom completely nullifies any economical advantages of using this paper. They’d have to be giving this stuff away to make it a good bargain, and even then I’d be pissed off about having to use it.
It is bad enough that I am actually writing about toilet paper on a shopping blog.
