Apparently this area likes toilet paper, but doesn't like to buy it. Management posted a sign in the bathroom at the campground between Odessa and Midland:
We stock the bathroom with toilet paper daily. If you find yourself in a stall without any toilet paper it's because some of our customers would rather steal than buy their own.
It felt like a rude statement. The statement was addressing its honest patrons and at the same time accusing its dishonest ones.
Then at our campsite outside of Big Spring, another notice inside the stall:
Don't steal the toilet paper. If you need a roll, come to the office and I'll give you one.
I guess the recession has hit harder than I thought if people are down to the point of stealing toilet paper.
