Rest stop toilet paper.

300 miles of paper mounted on a huge disk on the stall wall so it never has to be changed. The stuff is so thin, you could wrap it around your eyes 50 times, and still be able to see well enough to drive.

You better pray you never have to peel some of this stuff off the roll because you have to stick your arm up into the plastic disk from hell, where some kind of toilet paper cutting mechanism cuts into the top of your wrist.

They must design it that way to prevent toilet paper theft.

1. You wouldn't make a very good trucker
One time, in an unfortunate incident in a Montata rest area, a Stephan King paperback had to be sacrificed due to a particularly urgent call from mother nature and no toilet paper. Damn good book, too. Not one of his shittier efforts.

5. Pun intended?
Hopefully you just used the boring parts in the beginning...

2. A guy is sitting in a stall and has a particularly unpleasant experience.
Of course this required cleanup, but there was no toilet paper. After a moment of panic, he noticed feet in the next stall. "Hey buddy!"

"Yeah?"

"Do you have any toilet paper over there?"

"Nope."

"Do you have a magazine or something?"

"Nope."

"Got change for a five?"

3. If you're wrapping it around your eyes, you're doing it wrong. Unless
Unless you're a shithead.

4. my oldest son did "maintenance" at a nearby interstate rest stop
and recently went back to see if he could go back to work up there (since that is about the closest paying work to us - if you don't count the Border Patrol :mad: )

He may start a blog if he gets it - just to save his sanity. It was pretty bad. Not the lawn mowing of desert weeds in 100 degree weather - rather the indoor work - also often involving that same tp. Apparently a lot of people have NO problem getting it off the roll. Flushing it seems to be their problem. :puke:
