Dear Charmin

Why hello there, you makers of paper that is much needed, but little discussed!

You are by far the brand that I turn to when looking for the perfect toilet paper. I don't care what the price is, I am going for Charmin. When I'm feeling more frugal than usual, I will go with Charmin Basics, but my favorite is Charmin Ultra Strong. The reason for this is because it makes you feel like you need to use less and therefore lasts longer. And for some reason when my husband blows his nose with toilet paper, it tends to tear, so Ultra Strong insures that he does not get snot everywhere. That and my 3 year old does not feel the need to use the whole roll when she goes potty.

And here's my beef. Is it really necessary to have mega rolls? I mean, I feel as though this could be contributing to society's ever growing laziness. I may be in the minority, but I find it kind of sad when people are so lazy that they can not change the roll of toilet paper when they empty it. I won't name any names, but I visit someone who has a trash can within reach of their toilet. And they store the toilet paper within reach as well. So, when I see that the toilet paper roll is empty, but the trash can AND the new toilet paper are within arms reach of the toilet, a little piece of my soul begins to weep.

So, I understand that you created mega roll in order to save people the effort of changing the roll as often... but... seriously? I think we should not encourage such laziness as the inability to take TEN SECONDS to change a roll of toilet paper.

Much love and thank you so much for caring about our bathroom habits!
