View Full Version : In which I positively ponder the potential pragmatic power of parallel paper pushing

Is this normal? Are the days of two-roll holders and single seat-protector dispensers long gone?
Why on earth would a single stall need six rolls of TP and two buttsheet dispensers? Is this custodial laziness at work or just new-age Humboldtian labor efficiency?

Make that seven rolls of TP. What my university lacks in quality, it makes up for in... just, nevermind.

Some of them were there when the stalls were first constructed. With time passes, they keep adding on.
The bathroom stalls in my gym have about the same number (well, they have a machine that can hold three rolls at once, and a few more on roll holders).
If they're used very frequently, there may not be enough time for the janitors to keep checking the bathrooms and make sure all the stalls have TP. And hey, even with all those holders, occasionally I still see stalls without TP!!!

Clearly, your university is home to the equivalent of the Toilet Paper Bandit who lives (or poops) on the same dorm floor as me. I'm pretty sure that the TPB is compelled to build a voluminous, fluffy nest atop the toilet seat before she does her business, which she then nudges off the seat and onto the floor. (I have witnessed this behavior once from an adjacent stall--all I know is that her pants are too short and she wears cutesy Christmas socks.) We run out of paper ridiculously often--looks like your bathroom is just taking preventative measures.

I could see the point of multiple backups for the TP, but two ass-gasket dispensers?
I wonder if there are any papercraft/origami projects one could partake in while one is "in the office doing paperwork."
