When I worked at my last job, we did many things on a computer terminal.  I was there over 20 years, and saw many changes.  Of course, as the technology evolved, so did our machines – usually about 4 years after everyone else did.

They kept harping about A PAPERLESS SOCIETY, but kept us using paper and printing on it.  More electronically, but, eventually paper was involved.

Now, my roomie prefers the really soft, cushy roll of paper.  You know the kind – advertised by cartoon bears in the woods.  Sadly, roll it about two-times-over and one is down to the cardboard tube.  Time to change the roll.

tpI prefer the 1000 sheet-single-ply.  If they could, they’d rate it with a sandpaper grit number.  More sheets; don’t have to change the roll as frequently.

My experience is the female-of-the-species prefers as my roomie does.  Better soft than abrasive.

This has evolved into two roll dispensers in the main bathroom, his and hers.  And ‘roll follies’ when one roll is needed upstairs, but the reloads are downstairs.  But, all-in-all, we work it out.

As we humans know, unless one is in a less-civilized part of the World, eventually, paper is involved.

  1. The job isn’t done until the paperwork is complete. :^)

  2. The office type paperwork would likely vanish completely in a free society, but the bathroom sort is probably with us for a very long time unless someone gets very inventive. But I keep wondering what they do about that on a space station…

    I buy the 1,000 sheet sort myself, and find it perfectly adequate. I’m too scotch to buy the cushy stuff. 🙂 The only problem is that ALL the rolls are shrinking. Eventually they’ll only be an inch or two wide.

  3. Years ago a roomie represented a major name in the industrial paper company. Their new development was a roll and dispenser that holds the equivalent of 12 standard rolls. It was designed for high traffic locations like arenas so the staff doesn’t have to change out the roll multiple times a night.

    He installed one in our bathroom. A friend needed to use the loo at a get together. “I LOVE IT” soon erupted from said loo.
