A Barely Adequate Solution

The IHOP in Orange has this sign posted in the men's room stall:

The text reads:

Please Don't Throw
Paper In Toilet
Thank You

Before I could wonder where I was supposed to throw my toilet paper, I looked down and saw this thoughtfully provided receptacle:

I decided to just not use the toilet at all.

When I returned nearly two months later, the sign and receptacle were still there.

I just thought that's kind of a cheap fix for a business trying to overcome a plumbing problem. Especially in a financially upscale OC community.

Congratulations on your penny pinching, IHOP! Why hire a plumber when you can just ask your patrons to throw their toilet paper in a bucket?
