I don't know what he does and I'm not asking, but my son uses almost a whole bog roll at each "sitting" - I'm thinking of imposing a bog roll surcharge!  ::)

Sounds like you need to swap the Andrex for a box of tracing paper Ron!  ;D

So . . . . moving on

Why is todays "quality" bog roll so thin and have such small sheets. I used to travel to the the USA quite often, and I used at least twice as much arse wipe over there as here. I use Travelodge hotels quite a bit, if they think they are saving money by have such crap bog paper, they're wrong as I use at least twice as much. At least 4 or even 6 sheets to the fold  8) and yes, this matters. It is of mega importance    ::)

4 to 6 sheets! Are you a large chap Rog?  ???  ::)  :-\  :)

Largish-ish yes, but not 4-6 of decent quality. My point is that sometimes in hotels they buy such cheap really thin paper with incredibly small sheets.

You're right Rog, in that it's probably a false economy.  There's nothing worse than the tissue disintegrating as you wipe!  ::)

You should write in.  On their cheap bog roll of course!  :y

In my (fairly extensive ;D) experience of "cleaning up", you instinctively know after about 3 wipes if you're making progress, and if you should just give up and get the pressure washer out.

The only exception is the aftermath of a nice lamb naga, where you have to revert to the blotting method, rather than an abrasive wipe on quilted velvet, due to the delicate nature of the operation.

Yes there is, the paper is so thin that you are actually using your bare fingers!  :o    Hands up nail biters  ::)

Go and visit Ukraine to find out what the term 'shit hole' really means. ::) ::) ::)  In a  village house like the MILs it is in the outside room.  A hole in the concrete to joint the rest in the smelly pit below. In the summer you have plenty of company from the flies buzzing around, whilst perfecting your aim trough the hole in the concrete slab so you don't leave a 'signature' behind on the concrete rim. If you have a loose bowel then you add your 'graffiti' all over the concrete to join the others, the swarm of flies will thank you. :o :o :o

And this is pure luxury compared to the free public toilets, the paid ones aren't so bad as they give you two sheets, to clean up your small/large, wet/dry discharge afterwards, you need more, live with the clinkers until your evening shower. :o :o :o

To say it is enlightening and character forming how other countries live and unpleasant sums it up. :o :o :o It is obviously a mainland European way of life as french public toilets with their hole and raised foot placers aren't much better. :o :o :o
