Default Daft regulations?

After returning to UK 2 months ago I am still finding my way around .Yesterday I went to the bus station in the area I now live in Scotland,to ask for a map of the bus routes.Not possible was the reply ,cannot handle paper due to rules concerning Covid.When I got onto the next bus to return home,everyone in my queue was issued with a paper ticket after using their bus card .Then an inspector boarded & handled each ticket.Maybe I´ve spent too long in the sun in Spain in the past,but I think that is bonkers.Do people not buy newspapers anymore in UK or use notepads or,dare I say it,even loo rolls??

Fortunately only one person generally touches pieces of toilet paper and nobody thereafter.

You don't wash and reuse your bog roll?? Even after The Great Bog Roll Famine of 2020? Bloody spendthrift!

Actually was thinking about the person putting the loo roll onto the holder especially in public toilets,but I did get a laugh at your comments.Come to think about it Spouse of S.you´ve got the right idea.Do you hang it lengthways along the washing line or in loops to catch the wind?

Bus tickets and loo roll should be issued the same way. Both OH and the Little Lion go through the stuff at a rate of knots, they need rationing

Definitely lengthways Dougal, if it was in loops the dog might jump up and accidentally hang himself.

You mean you can catch covid through your rear as well as your nose?

In one of the Czech spa towns, my mum went into the public toilets and the attendant was dishing out the toilet paper rather than there being a supply in the cubicles. One sheet each apparently.

I may have been exaggerating a tiny little bit. Or lying. I'm so ashamed.

I've experienced that approach in Mexico.
