More brilliant ideas!!
Due to the economic downturn, the huge budget deficit in the city where I live, and the 13% unemployment here... the all-wise elected ones have once again failed to make financially smart decisions...ya know, roadside flowers and pools are DEFINITELY a necessity, while losing 150 police officers is no reason for concern.....
One Commissioner commented, "During these tough economic times, it is important that the public know we are not wasting taxpayer dollars on what some may call essential supplies. There are plenty of substitutes for ... toilet paper, for example... such as: parking tickets, pay stubs, tree leaves, corn cobs, and that huge pile of papers waiting to be shredded. It's time for County employees to quit whining and get creative."
Anyway, one of the ways the Commissioners have decided to cut back is by buying toilet paper glued so well that it only comes off the roll in tiny pieces. The Commissioners feel this move will not only preserve the County's supply of toilet paper, but also save thousands of dollars for the County.
Looks like now it'll be BYOTP to work every day for me....but I'll be sure to inform my co-workers about just how to make due with only those little pieces -- thanks to Spaz!
Thank God it's Friday!!
