DON’T THEY KNOW…

Filed at 5:14 pm under by dcobranchi

that a “towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have”?

CA legislators are debating a bill that would mandate all schools- public and private would have to have paper towels in their restrooms. Cloth towels would not be permitted. As the bill is currently written, homeschoolers would not be exempt. County health officials would have the authority to inspect the bathrooms.

Well, it’s about time the CA legislators started addressing the REAL issues concerning the schools.

I think if it passed with exempting home educators (and thank goodness I don’t live there; would make me crazy), I might be tempted to have a child leave a small gift in the bathroom commode when the inspector arrived- lid up, of course ;).

Whew I’m covered for this one… I actually did remove the cloth hand towels in my powder room for a basket w/ the very cheap dispenser style paper towels in it about 2 years ago.
It has made a real difference in lessening the number of colds that our family has picked up from guests & kids that have been by w/ the sniffles.
When one of us in the house does get sick we don’t seem to share it as much with every member of the family.
