This Vexes Me #16.

It's been awhile since I've had something to vex me. I'm trying not to let things get to me, even though they do. But, I've spent a day cleaning up after a wonderful weekend as well as pushing forward to clean some things that didn't get done before Carole and David came. That has involved the use of paper towels. And you know what, this vexes me. This. See?

I've used 4 different sheets today and every. single. one. has torn off like this. In fact, out of the half a roll used, I would say 90% of the sheets I've torn off have left this diagonal on the left side. Is it me? Because I'm right handed, am I not tearing them off completely? Are they not cut all the way through? Is it because I'm not buying the cream of the paper towel crop and using store brand? What is it because this is annoying.

Yes, there are times, such as crushing a spider or a large ant, that this diamond on the end is valuable. But most of the time, I want a full sheet. I use what gets torn off and keep the extra diamond on the sheet above. Still, if it's going to be perforated, it should tear all the way across.

Beverage:  Water
