Default Napkin Phenomenon

Please explain to me the extreme waste of napkins at fast food restaurants. It boggles my mind when someone takes a 2Ē tall stack of napkins, uses 2-3, and then throws the rest in the trash. I donít eat at many fast food restaurants, this is primarily happening at Chipotle.

Keeping people with jobs. More napkins needed, more people have to work for napkin companies.

I grab two, and I almost always use them both. But I've seen people grab stacks of them. Though sometimes they fill the damn things so full, you have to grab a ton otherwise they rip and you get a tiny chunk of a napkin.

I think part of it is the idiots working at the restaurants put the napkins in the holder backwards, so there is no leading edge to grab if you want to pick one out.

So, you must reach in the napkin holder and grab a shitload of them just to get one.

I see this in our bathroom at work where the paper towels are put in upside down so you can't grab them one at a time. There ends up being paper towels all over the floor and piles of unused ones on the counter because someone just wanted ONE and ended up having to grab 20 of them instead.

I take 5 napkins. I usually use at least 4 of them lol. Some restaurants have napkins that are so paper thin that they are useless.

With everything that deals with the general public tending to themselves, especially most slobs at public eateries, it needs to be behind the counter and regulated.

I hate people who also take aton of shit home like salt and pepper... Really?

When I was little I'd watch my old ass aunt take everything from restaurants. Salt, pepper, forks, etc... It soothes me now that she died with a ton of money that went to her shit kids who blew it on gambling and QVC. SOOTHES me

And the opposite of Napkins places like TB usually give you 10x the sauce you need.

I ran through TB drive-through and they asked me if I wanted any sauce. I said, Sure. Asked for some Diablo.

The guy literally took a fist-full of them and put them in the bag. So much that every time I've been to TB in the last 6 months when they ask me if I need sauce I say No. Because I STILL have the sauce at home in a refrigerated zip-lock baggie.

I am right there with you. Take as many as you need to wipe your mug/hands/etc....If you need 20 because you are a messy fool, take 20, and use the majority of them.

Don't take 40, use 5, and throw 35 in the fucking garbage. The least someone could do would be leave them on the table if they are ultimately lazy, or better bring it back to the napkin holder.

i have thought about this too. having napkins simply accessible at tables has to save a lot of them. if i took extra and didn't use them i'll just leave them on the table for the next person.

I got to Potbelly 2-3 times per month for lunch. They used to have napkins dispensers on the table, but now got rid of them and only have napkins by the fountain drink dispenser. Now I'm more likely to grab a handful of napkins because I don't feel like fighting my way through a crowd of people to get back to the one napkin dispenser while the place is busy during the lunch rush.

I use a few napkins while eating. But I usually will take a few extra and keep them in my truck. Iíll use them when I need to blow my nose or wipe down my interior drivers door after opening my window while itís raining out.

Other than that. Watching people take a stack and then tossing them in the trash makes me wonder what in the hell is that person or people thinking.

Why don't you bring a towel in with you that you can take home and wash later? You hippie.







I hate the waste too. But I also hate not having a napkin when I need it. One napkin is filthy and I need to wipe my mouth. What do I do? Don't tell me to be less of a sloppy eater either! lmao
