A Puzzling Question

What is it about the overseers of public restrooms that makes them think that those huge rolls of narrow stiff paper (so called) are beneficial to anyone's butt? I can understand the logic that it is probably cheaper than Charmin or AngelSoft, but it takes about three times as much of that underprocessed tree bark to do the job and probably ends up costing more. It's enough to make one want to carry a private stash of real toilet paper for those emergency moments. I guess it's not an important issue, but it's another of life's great mysteries.

i think it has to do with the frequency of replacement
or sadism
or the moon.

Having spent a weekend at camp in the bathrooms of which such paper rolls are used, I was chuckling to myself as I read. I'm with you. I find the stuff disgusting and hard to use. I end up using much more than normal, and usually frustrated because it will not rip off properly or gets stuck up inside the dispenser. Grrr.....
