Here at ToiletPaperWorld we love to hear the occasional odd stories involving our favorite product and share them. This particular story comes to us all the way from Germany! A big problem with public restrooms is that some people might try to steal whatever products are accessible and easy to carry, including toilet paper. Many toilet paper and toilet paper dispenser manufacturers make products to prevent this very thing by building toilet paper dispensers that have secure locking mechanisms. Just last week, a young politician in Northern Germany was caught red-handed stealing toilet paper from the town hall facility.
Apparently, the janitors became suspicious after they noticed 200 rolls had gone missing over a period of time. The proactive property manager hid in a bathroom stall one evening, and caught the pilfering politician, 23 year old Frank-Michael John, with toilet paper rolls in his backpack and one in his hand.
Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be information available on why he is stealing toilet paper – is he a very low paid politician and couldn’t afford it? Do we write this off as simple office antics? Sadly, we may never have an answer to this puzzling piece of the pilfering politician.
