Small Victory

Today, I realized I had won a small victory. The story begins several months ago...

You see, for all of my life, I have been a Charmin gal. (For those of you unaware, Charmin is a toilet paper company.) And for most of my life, they have made the same great product. But in recent history, they decided to discontinue their superior product in favor of splitting it up. The regular Charmin became "Ultra Soft" and "Ultra Strong." Neither was quality. They both were very inferior to the regular Charmin.

As a concerned consumer, I lodged a complaint with the company after trying both new products. I explained my concerns to them, and begged them to bring back the original.

Walking through Wal-Mart today, I realized I needed to buy some toilet paper. Begrudgingly, I set my path toward the Ultra Strong. Bad as it is, it was still better than Ultra Soft. Then, it caught my eye. Charmin Basic. They brought the old product back!

It's a small victory, but a victory nonetheless.

Oh, and for those of you who care about such things, I graduated college this morning with my Bachelor of Arts degree. So now, I'm job hunting. I guess if nothing else, I can be a consumer advocate. Haha.
