Conned Again


Susan, remember how you always told the Career Guidance Counselor that your great ambition in life was to be the person who rolled the toilet paper onto the rolls? Well, this morning when I was changing the toilet paper roll holder I noticed something very odd. The tube I took off the holder seemed bigger than the last one I removed. I quickly pulled one out of the garbage can and, sure enough, it slid right inside the one I had just removed.

I still have toilet paper packs from 4 or 5 years ago, so I quickly grabbed a roll from one of them and it was 5/16 ths of an inch taller than the roll in the new package. Now these are the Scott 1000 squares so that despicable company has probably made the squares 5/16ths of an inch shorter to keep them square. Then they have made the tube a little bigger in diameter so the roll still looks sort of fatter.


Well I quickly snatched out my cell phone and took pictures showing all the comparisons.



My point is that you, Susan, should have stuck with your original career option and got a job with Scott and you would have been a rich woman by now with the money saved from reducing the amount of paper on the rolls and increasing the price. At least you could have been a whistle blower for the rest of us so we could have boycotted the Scott Company!!!

Somebody, please help me post my picture!!! Aaaargh!

Thank you!! Cathy and Jenny!!!

I don't have any pictures but I had the same experience with cake mixes. The old ones that I got on a really good sale last year, are 18.4 oz. The ones I got this year for double the normal price of last year's cake mixes are only 15.25oz. I guess Scott company figured if cake mixes were smaller we wouldn't need as much TP.
