My Door Girl judges me by our toilet paper

Florence is the sweetest Cantonese lady I have met. She truly takes an interest in what we are doing, where we are going, etc. However, this week we ran out of TP and I had to bring some home. (Typically that is something I have delivered out of convenience). Little did I know that my selection would become the topic of conversation in the lobby waiting for the "lift". It seems us Americans spent a lot on this disposable product in her eyes. She really wanted to know how much I spent on eight rolls of Andrex! (kimberly Clark product packaged as Cottonelle in the States). I guess the Chinese don't value the same things we do!
