Guys who get paper towels dispensed not once, not twice, but three times in the men's room on our floor at work. It dispenses plenty of towel the first time. You just have to move it around your hands more. In the time it takes to dispense it two more times, you could have been totally dry with the one towel and been a whole lot lest wasteful. They end up taking more time getting three (or even two) towels. I would say 90%+ get three paper towels dispensed.

Waste in general is a pet peeve of mine.

What a waste it is to lose one's mind. Or not to have a mind is being very wasteful.

No paper clips, but it definitely involves printing a document

Nah, ferrets are super cute and fun. If they didn't poop a ton, they'd be great pets.

They have a bit of a musky smell, but if you bathe them somewhat regularly and clean up after them they aren't that bad.

A "bit"???

And by "regularly" you mean daily?

If you neuter them, they smell a good deal less.

LOOK AT THESE ADORABLE CREATURES! How can you hate on them?
