So here it is! Our very first official rebuttal of a DIFF entry submitted by Brian Doelle on Nov. 15. Brian wrote about his “grating” experience with less-than-mellifluous toilet paper at hotels that marketed themselves as “luxury” or “spas.” He was fed up and it hurt (it really probably did hurt — in a scraping kind of way). And he wondered if anybody EVER uses those silly bathrobes fancy-smancy places provide.
I decided to test his theory. I recently spent five days at the 4-star El Dorado Royale near Cancun, Mexico. This place is luxury, a spa, and provides bathrobes. It was a perfect place to see whether Mr. Doelle was correct in his sweeping generalization that luxury hotels provide toilet paper better fit for a military outhouse……
I can tell you the El Dorado had toilet paper that was as soft and tender as a freshly-baked flour tortilla. It was wonderful and I couldn’t wait to use it after each all-you-can-eat-and-drink day of fun and sun. And I wore the bathrobe EVERY day! It was soft and fluffy too!
Let this be a lesson to us all. You CAN find a hotel with soft toilet paper. You just have to travel a few thousand miles to find it!
So, Mr. Doelle, put that in your toilet and flush it!
