Vance Packard is alive and well

A while back, the paper towel people came up with a great idea: pick-a-size.  They started perforating their sheets at half size.  This, I felt, was a great boon to us paper towel users.  Almost always, unless the dog has made a mess on the floor, I only need half a sheet of paper towel.  Suddenly my paper towel rolls were lasting almost twice as long!

It seems that it didn’t take long for the paper towel people to notice this.  I opened a new roll yesterday and tore off “half a sheet”.  It was a good two inches wider than the old “half sheet”.
