A tissue issue

This is my new pet peeve! I just opened a new box of Kleenex because I needed a tissue. I didn’t want three tissues –  just one single tissue. But could I pull up just one single tissue? No.  You can not open a new box of Kleenex and pull up one tissue with the first pull. Three sheets are forced on us, like it or not. Why? Apparently, the technology does not exist. But didn’t some guy walk on the moon? Can’t you store 40,000 songs on a small metal stick? We could probably clone a human being if we wanted to. So what’s up with Kleenex? I think if they folded them right, you could get one to pop up with the first pull. Seriously, it can’t be that hard.

    I’d like to find a brand that doesn’t pop up at all. With the old brands, you reached into the box and pulled up one at a time. They weren’t folded one into the other which causes one to pull up the next one. Isn’t that the way it was? If anyone knows of a brand that comes in the old way, would you let me know? Thanks

    Detective Jenny at work once again and busted yet another mystery…lol… 🙂
    I have to agree with Bruce. They pack the box too full so more than enough is pulled out. I think the machine is set to over fill the box and wouldn’t you know it less toilet paper and too much tissue paper. What ripoffs!…
    Funny thing about this is that the Corporates that rip us off are only ripping themselves off as well…

    Ugh I was just complaining about this!!

    I would like to see the president of the Kleenex Corporation demonstrate opening one of their boxes and only pull out only ONE tissue!

    It’s a corporate trick to get us to use more. I swear there are only like 15 kleenex in each one of those small square boxes these days. Back when I was young, grumble grumble grumble…..

    I know, right? Grr…. I’ve also noticed that the Kleenex boxes are smaller than they were just last month. It’s a Kimberly-Clark conspiracy, I tell ya. 😀
