An Open Letter

To the giant, multi-national toilet paper conglomerates and Albertson's Grocery Stores:

I am addressing this letter to both of you because I don't know who's to blame.

Is there a reason that you no longer make and/or carry four packs of toilet paper in anything other than the store brand? I don't like the store brand - it doesn't hold up to...well, what toilet paper is designed to do. But no other brands come in four packs. You can get 8, 12, 16, or 24 packs. But not four.

Not everyone in the world is part of a family of 6 living in a five bedroom house with four bathrooms. In fact, most of the people who shop at grocery stores right outside a college campus live in apartments, with one bathroom and no storage. We are outside of our homes 10-12 hours a day, 5-7 days a week. We don't use that much toilet paper. The 12 pack we are forced to buy (for $10, by the way) will last us three months.

We want four packs that we can buy for less than $4. They will last us a month, and then we'll buy another one. They will fit in the tiny little storage spaces below our sinks, and won't have to sit on the dresser in our bedrooms because that is the only freaking place they fit.

Is this yet another example of the attack on American singleness? Will the single people of this country have to mount a protest movement against economy sizing?

Please bring back the four pack of toilet paper. The single people of the world will thank you.
