Well I guess we know who the person is who liked the idea.  ;D  You must make small, confined messes. Me, I kinda' likes the whole square of paper towel but hey, it looks like things are going to go your way on this issue.

As to the size or import of the problem, as my son says 'Nice to have first- world problems'; we (OK, I) can complain about the size of the paper I use to clean up while some others worry about having enough to make a mess in the first place. So yeah, the size of the problem is relative to be sure.

It was the best thing ever.  They were never square, but more like a long rectangle, and most of the time it was a huge waste because I don't need that much.  And I would have to manually rip it in half and store the other half.  Now I can get a much better match to the size I need, more easily.  If I really need something larger, I just tear it at 2 units, or even 3.

Maybe.  But you will have to pick something that is actually a problem, first :)

I am just a penny-pincher.  It is actually pretty amazing how few paper towels I use.  I am amazed when I see people buying them in droves.  One "Costco" brick of paper towels will last me for maybe a year and a half.

Which is pretty rare.  It seems like whatever I want/like/need the market usually moves in some other direction.

Oh yes, the perf size of paper towels is certainly a "first-world problem" if ever I heard of one :)

Which is why I went on a rant about it.... things are really pretty good here (in my world, the part of the planet that I actually participate with), well OK they are great and so I had to pick this thing out that annoyed me. But in all seriousness, we, meaning most of the first- world, actually have things fantastically well. Imagine, one of our 'big' problems is obesity! Just a few generations ago most of us were more worried about starving, and some in the world remain in that mode. So most of us are like the little kid throwing a tantrum over nothing, relatively speaking.

But I really do hate those damn over- perforated paper towels.  :rotflmao:

Those are the only paper towels we buy, the ones cut in half.  Saves us money as 9 times out of 10 we don't need a whole towel.

New neighbors.    They excel at being loud.    They have modified exhausts on their cars, truck and motorcycles.   :thumbdown
Crazy, no.  Annoying as hell, yes.

Sorry, I know exactly how it is.
