Heard from a nearby stall:

"Can you spare a square?"

Ten rolls of paper per day??? That's a lot of fiber in your diet.

This is actually something I used to from time to time in undergrad because I didn't want to pay for it.

Looks like I got out of the business just in time.

Yay, Siouxie!

so everyone doesn't do this...?

Ten a day for 3 days, guess he was on a roll.

YAY!!

shhhhhhh, cg...we're not supposed to admit it.

YAY!!!! Sooz.

Can't we shove all the stolen rolls down the bot's throat?

Yay Siouxie (insert gratuitous manilow link here)

So she was caught red handed ehh better than brown handed.

At2, EWWWWWWWWWWWW

ewwie, Addicted...that's almost as bad as a manilow link!

Baron - My bro-in-law works in an ER. He treated one girl that had been consuming 6 rolls of TP per day for years. ISIANMTU.

yeah, can ya spare a square. put those seinfeld hats on.
think of the desperation in stealing teepee. or not.

"Consuming" how, Brainy??? As in eating? Did her parent buy stock in Georgia Pacific before they brought her in?

*looks around*

*returns toilet seat*

"The middle-aged woman, who has not been named, was caught red-handed by council staff in West Bridgford, Nottingham."

Unclear reporting really bothers me. Why was a woman from the Middle Ages still without a name? Was it customary back then not to give children names?

if it's not a serial thief, is it a sh*t-and-run?

Perhaps she had a little business on the side like Mrs. Blog. Only instead of selling crack, this one sells crack-wipes.

*hits the "Snork at Insom" button*

At Kunsan Air Base (yes, the frog in the jet engine base), we had a real problem with the korean employees stealing the toilet paper from the public bathrooms. It wasn't so much that they were dishonest, as much as the fact that korean TP is like wiping with burlap and sand paper. Speaking of sandpaper; what is the difference between sandpaper and european TP?
Sandpaper is smooth on one side.

We americans really have it good when it comes to TP.

I can't imagine stealing the toilet paper from most places. I'm spoiled by extra soft 2 ply, and keep my own private supply at work. Thats normal, right?

In case anybody, contemplating a trip to SA, has decided to cancel due to doubt about the TP softness, let me assure you all that our TP is up there with the best in the US and is not graded on the Mohr's or grit scales.

CH - sorry for the lagged response: Yes, eating it. She would apparently eat 6 rolls of toilet paper every day. I guess that's one way to get fiber.

Wipe out crime!!

Wipe out crime!!

So this woman's been stealing toilet paper over and over again, and all they did was caution her? No ticket or fine or anything? I remember reading somewhere that England's not very tough on crime nowadays.
