Hey - where is everyone?!

Last week I went on a bus tour for 3 days at a casino. You know how all of us can't help noticing the shrinking of products - a pound of coffee hasn't been a pound for a long time; a half gallon of ice cream is only 1 1/2 quarts - etc. Well, I discovered the ultimate! The toilet paper in the casino restrooms was a good 1" narrower than usual. It's bad enough that they use very thin single ply, but skinny 2 inch wide rolls? For Pete's sake! Folks will only use 3 times as much, so why bother? Can you believe? Keep your eyes out for this in public bathrooms!

Just thought I'd give you a chuckle for the day!

In my way of thinking the automatic water in both flushing and rinsing hands. I'm sure that the intent was to fix it so that the toilets were flushed but they have it set so if you move around and how can you help but move around when wiping? sometimes it a 3-4 flush flush doesn't make sence to me at atll...and then the water barely somes out so you have to keep moving from sink to sink so that you can get all the soap off...and then how many times do you get paper towels cause it didn't let you get enough the first time? Oh yes we are saving money

I've noticed this even when buying tissue, paper towels, etc. at WalMart. Guess suppliers think we are just dumb or dumber and wouldn't notice??? Worse than shrinking sizes are the higher prices of everything and getting way less!!
What about the cereal boxes??

I didn't hear the whole thing on the news in fact at this moment not sure I heard the news or just the blip about it but they were talking about different things being "cut" with something else to make it go further because of the cost of transporting and what ever else they blamed it on an example was the pomagrant (sure wish I had spell check :)) juice that is whole juice might be cut with pear juice and another example that I don't remember ended in deaths I would think because of allergys but using when I have the tv on I'm also involved with something on the computer and so the listening is cut by lots... remember thinking that is scary...guess I did see all of the news on it...that would be a lot for a blurp.. Just wish I'd paid more attention or retained more

Yep we are getting the raw end of the deal
