No Toilet Paper: It’s a Jersey Thing!

March 13th, 2012

I post without comment this story from the Garden State.

Trenton’s health department could shut down some city buildings if a toilet paper shortage isn’t resolved soon.

“It could be an inconvenience for anybody, young, old, male, female,” said Maryann Wooten of Hamilton Township.

The toilet paper and paper towel supply for at least eleven buildings, including city hall, are dangerously low.

“We have one box with about fifteen rolls of toilet paper and that’s it,” said Harold Hall, Acting Public Works Director.

Hall says a City Council resolution to order more paper supplies, including paper cups, was voted down. Some council members didn’t think the cash-strapped city needed to buy the cups.

That’s a situation!
