Georgia Pacific Can Kiss My Ass

I have had it with the clawing, begging and beseeching for a few measly inches (of seemingly prized) coarse, thin paper with which to dry my delicate side every time I brave a public restroom.

These contraptions should be used for friggin target practice. The whole lot of 'em.

Note the word "locking" in the description. Oh yeah, these things aren't defective when they do not allow us more than four inches of toilet paper. No, they are defective when they do.

The locking function prevents "waste" and "pilferage."

Yeah... I go to Six Flags or Dave and Busters or Jillian's - where I am pilfered to the tune of three healthy figures - and I'm gonna recoup it in the bathroom, stashing loads of the thin, rough stuff, so I can take it home and wipe my ass raw. That'll show 'em.

Know why you see "waste" all over the floor? Cuz I'm not the only one pissed! Once you get the damn thing to cooperate, you grab handfuls of it, and litter the stall out of spite...as it should be.

I've never seen that happen in a nice, well-kept restroom, with a normal, fully functional dispenser sportin' a roll of Charmin.

Very nice post, Key. Keep this up and you are well on your way to becoming an Official Shit Blogger, Wet Fart Corps.

We are having initiation ceremonies at Jekyll, if you're interested.

I dont see this as an insurmountable problem. By all means inform the management when they've cheaped you out, but carry a packet of tissues in your purse, and maybe some baby wipes as well, and you'll never have to worry.

I don't carry a purse, but I have those items in my jacket pockets.

I confronted one of these things just today... I agree with your frustration. We should require the people that sell and buy these things to use them!

That's one of the good things about being built like a silverback gorilla.


Voila! Free-rolling TP...

Locking? Well theoretically yes, but they open quite nicely using the nail file on my pocket knife.

One of our local theaters used to have them, but the bottom baffles keep getting broken off and they fall off the stall wall in a couple pieces when stomped. Not that I ever feel like doing that.

Do like the ragheads do, eat with one hand and wipe your ass with the other, Cat.

Between you and Rob, I can't laugh any more! I love to laugh! Vman and the brown tsunami is classic

This is why I carry tissue in the purse.

That's why they put those paper seat covers in there - back-up devices for when the rolls won't unroll.

I'm guessing Rivrdog is a fella.

True. This is not an insurmountable problem, but it shouldn't be a damned problem at all.

What the hell do they think that we'll do if they install better tissue and regular dispensers? Spend all friggin night in there T.P.ing the stalls?
