Stealth Select-A-Size Paper Towels

We got hit with stealth select-a-size paper towels recently.  These paper towels weren’t marked properly (or anyway, I didn’t see them marked as such) and we bought them.

Usually, my mom abhors the select-a-size towels.  I don’t really have an opinion on them, other than they can be irritating because you never really know how much you grab til it’s too late.

The reason I post this here and now is that I just brought the grill in (we cooked burgers and such outside yesterday) and had to dump the charcoal ashes.  I do that, drag the grill into the garage, and go inside.  My hands are dirty (from the ashes and the grill itself).  I wash them, and since we have no towel hanging below the sink, I grab a paper towel.  Since it’s the select-a-size, I end up with half of a paper towel.  It kind of surprised me.

Anyway, that’s my random rant for the evening.  I now return you to your regularly scheduled friends’ page.

  1. I’ve never really seen the point behind them. I usually wind up grabbing at least two of them anyway.

    Besides, can’t you select your size with ANY type of paper towel? They’re PERFORATED, for pity’s sake…

  2. I agree. There really is no point, other than to confuse and/or frustrate someone who’s trying to get a paper towel.

    You’re second point is brilliant! I never thought of that before. Yes, you can select the size of any paper towel. You can also rip them in the middle if you want to. :)
