No sir (ma'am?). I'm talking about the Charmin sold at Costco. The rolls are bigger, wider and fluffier than even the Charmin I find at other supermarkets. Oh no, I am verrrrrry particular when it comes to TP as this discussion makes clear. The Costco Kirkland brand TP (what you are referring to I think) is just as bad as all the rest. CHARMIN or nothing.

Tho I buy most everything online but there are times where a store purchase is necessary. Standing in a line of customers buying clothes or shoes (which take time to ring up) and there is only one cashier, tho there are 8 unmanned registers in the row (think DSW, etc) makes me nuts. Now other employees saunter up and take a phone call & leave, do a price check so a garment can be hung back on the rack & leave, announce they are going on break or just visit with the clerk as we all stare at them, can't they see us?? I understand that labor law mandates breaks and that phone calls and price checks need to be done, but right now?? Can't they feel the hope coming at them that they will open a register and help us out? Why doesn't the clerk call for more help? This seems to happen so often!

Yes, I can and do put my purchases down & walk out, but not only have I wasted 20 minutes standing in line but possibly 30 minutes selecting the outfit and shoes. I have to wonder what store management is thinking when they allow the loss of customers with money in hand.

Nowadays if a show isn't high quality, I won't even glance at it.
Oh yes! So much of TV and movies is just dreck.

My daughter said, "You have an opinion about EVERYTHING!"


I said, "Doesn't everyone?"


She said, "Yeah, but you VOICE your opinion."


*shrug* "So?" If I don't like something, I'm going to say something about it.
