Cut Backs


I have some important news that will impact humans, as well as dogs. My Human does Human Resources for a large, international commercial cleaning company. The warehouse manager pointed out to her that the size of the rolls of toilet paper the vendors where sending at shrunk by about 3/4th of an inch wide.

So what this means to us is that there will be less toilet paper for us to shred. And the actual rolls will also be smaller.

Businesses do this so that they can keep the price the same and maintain their profit margin.

Some packages stay the same size, but the product gets smaller. Pretty soon we won't be able to find the product.

Oh no, not toilet paper! We noticed our cherrios box got smaller, so no more cherrios. You need to get in office and fix all these problems.

We'll be back to corn husks before too long. And if things get really, really bad, we'll be back to corn cobs.

Kind of clever considering a human came up with that but it's most inconsiderate for those of us who use it soley for entertainment purposes.
