TP Shame

I buy ridiculously cheap toilet paper.

There.  I said it.  And I stand by this decision.

Yup...that's me!
Yup…that’s me!

What surprises me is the reaction this gets from anyone who visits my house.  People call me out on the crappy (hehe) quality of my uberthin 1-ply.

I don’t get it.  It’s toilet paper.  You’re using it to wipe fecal matter from your ass.    As long as you aren’t ending up with splinters down there, I think you’re doing okay.  Who the hell demands quality at a time like that?  Who watches Charmin commercials and thinks to themselves, “Ooooh yeah...that looks niiiice!”.

My fella lives out of town.  Can you guess what he brought with him in his most recent visit?

I question the research behind their "never felt so good" claim.

Now, I’m ashamed of my cheap-assedness.  Before having friends over for dinner last weekend, I asked my fella to “Put out the good toilet paper”.

Seriously.

Gotta keep up with the Joneses.

Am I wrong to be so frugal in this area?  Is anyone else like this?
