Angry Getting ripped off with toilet paper now

Tossed a new roll on the spool after taking care of a little business and noticed the roll from the new pack is about 3/4 inch shorter. Those cheap bastards at Northern figured nobody would notice. I sure hope it doesn't affect performance.

Scotts 1000 baby! always has at least 1000 sheets and 1 roll last way longer than any Northern brand. Even during those real healthy dumps where you would flush 2 or 3 times with Northern, you can wipe and wipe and never clog the toilet!

Sounds like a pretty crappy thing to have to deal with to me.

Re: Getting ripped off with toilet paper now

I really must be bored.
From the QuiltedNorthern site:
Quote:
What roll sizes and sheet counts are available for the Quilted Northern Ultra Plush bath tissue? Are both Double and Mega rolls available?

Quilted Northern Ultra Plush is available in Double Rolls of 6, 12 and 24, as well as Mega Rolls of 6, 9 and 18. Double Rolls consist of 200 sheets and Mega Rolls have 267 sheets per roll. While the sheet count per roll is the same as the original Quilted Northern Ultra 2-ply, the roll size itself is narrower, creating additional efficiencies. Quilted Northern Ultra Plush requires less packaging, creates a smaller case size, uses less core paper per roll, and can be transported more efficiently.

I hear they still have the larger size roll, but it is being marketed as Magnum Size for Big A$$ holes.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.
