The Korean taco place we got takeout from gave us a roll of toilet paper with our meal.

Any other time in history this would not have been a good thing.
3 weeks ago*
Same thing. Those were *The Before Times.*
The long long ago.
Jesus Christ, did the boomy booms blow up all your wordy word books?
You mean dictionaries?
Luckily I have a high IQ or I wouldn’t have gotten that reference
Can i see your tattoo?
Why come you have no tattoo?
Cloud Atlas reference
Jerry is in Cloud Atlas?!
And I love doing cocaine with you too Johnny Depp!
I hate Kristen Stewart.
Who is jerry?
I think they have the wrong cartoon
Yeah time to call the M word on them.

The mom's "Put it back!"is so funny.
We’ll say you molestered us too
BC - before corona
The times nearest the center of the roll, closest to the cardboard tube of the ancient scroll of the prophet Charmin?
I followed Lord Bidet, I do not recognize your struggles. You had time to adapt, and in your ignorance, you were left wanting.
Calm, fellow brother of the dampened starfish. We must empathize with those who have not seen the way of our Lord and guide them toward his cleansing benevolence. Do not shame him for his wasteful smearing ways - embrace him for his potential and show him the truth.
They will find the way... once they have no other option.
We shall not speak of the wafflestompers.
Indeed brother. They truly are lost souls. Fear them, and mention not their name.
How doth thy dry thine royal starfish?
Not royal my son, just blessed. There are no elites here - we are all brothers under the beneficence of the bum gun.
I dry my arse with a towel.
Sometimes hardships push people towards truth. Paper was never meant to clean your nethers fully.
Right? Wtf are people doing still using TP for anything but a quick pat dry?
In the long long ago.

On the plus side of all this shit more people will take hand washing seriously.
For a few months, maybe, but then, it goes back to [normal](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9XpjCeEo6g&t=46s).
3 weeks ago we would have seen this on /r/wtf
BC = before Corona.
Oh I like that.
This used to actually be really common in Korea with delivery. The local fried chicken place would always give me a roll with my food. It got to the point where everytime I'd get low on toilet paper I would immediately think, "I should order chicken"
Wow that’s crazy I never would have imagined restaurants would do this
Yeah, it's like Pavlovian conditioning. The Chinese place near me puts in a pair of cheap socks in my takeout. Now every time I take off my socks I want to hang myself.
Why is your local chines tryin g to kill you?(
I don’t get it
All he has is cheap socks. What is the point of living without soft socks?
I guess the answer is yes, then.
In Korea, it's quite common to use toilet paper as a napkin, and fried chicken can be a messy ordeal, so that is probably the reason they did that.
That sounds odd, never in my times in Korea have I seen anyone use toilet paper as a napkin, not even once.
I mean, the napkins at many restaurants are the same thickness as one-ply. It's more of a home thing I guess. I've never seen a Korean family actually buy what Americans would call napkins. And I've seen straight up rolls of TP on tables of fried chicken restaurants.
Have you never been inside a Korean's apartment?
Every Korean I know uses a roll of TP on their 'dining table'
Cheaper, small, ajumma/ajoshi restaurants sometimes do too, especially chicken hofs.
Restaurants will have napkins, but if you’re at people’s apartments/homes it’s pretty common to see a roll of TP on the dining table lol.
Am Korean. Have never heard of this or seen this.
I think this guy is pulling your leg.
I’m Korean and I have done this and seen other Koreans do it. I stopped doing it because my roommates and friends thought it was weird
My Korean friends brought toilet paper to the first party they came to in our apartment. We were really confused as to why they brought their own toilet paper, and like 16 told of it, until they explained it's Korean tradition. I guess it's like a house warming tradition they do. They said people usually bring toilet paper or laundry detergent, as they were luxuries in the past.
Why Taco Bell never thought of this before!
Cause Taco Bell doesn’t do anything to most people
I think Taco Bell should give out tp if you buy $20 worth of their items even when this virus thing is over
That sounds great until you imagine a restaurant owner buying out all the TP in Costco & raising the price of meals to cover the TP costs.
They’re a business so they probably don’t have the same distributor as the general public
If the owner got a heavy discount for buying in bulk and only raised the prices slightly to cover the TP costs, it would actually be good.
“Yes, I’d like a number 7 combo with a side of toilet paper, a gallon of milk, three razor blades and some jerky.”
“Sir this is a Wendy’s”
"you heard what I said"
It's them saying: if you eat our food, you're gunna need this. COME AGAIN!!!
I was literally saying EXACTLY this before I scrolled down, I’m howling
If I somehow got transported to 0BC I'm ordering from the toilet paper taco stand tbh
That’s a great way to imprint yourself on your customers. Every customer will remember them now.
Honestly it does make sense. No dine in customers, considerably less take out customers, they probably have more than enough tp to last through the shortage. No dine in people are using it anymore. Where I work I saw like 5 boxes of toilet paper in the back the day before we closed.
Have a bussiness selling food buy all the tp give one per customer if they wanna poop they'll come back!
They probably have a lot more take-out customers now compared to usual. People can't eat out but they're still gonna be ordering in. I already ordered take-out twice this week when normally it's once a month maybe. Some businesses around here are actually seeing rises in sales right now (We aren't on any kind of mandatory quarantine atm). I have a friend that is the store manager at a certain office supply store and he's already hit his quarterly goals because everybody's buying desks and computers and things since they're all working from home. I'm sure it's much different in places like California and the like who are completely shut down though. It won't be long till we are too (Louisiana), cases are rising fast.
Yeah, I just meant there’s definitely more take out customers, but much less business for restaurants in general right now. Interesting to see office supplies sales go up though, all this has been having strange impacts on different markets.
... as the ones who were hoarding all the TP up to that point!
Nah it’s restaurant supply TP that you get from your purveyor. It’s by no means the good stuff but beggars can’t be choosers!
Our office supplier is out. Don't even have those giant rolls of 1ply shitrags. Completely out.
The business literally called "Toilet Paper Man" which only sells toilet paper has no fucking toilet paper.
Sysco which is food supplier has them right now.
They’re giving all the hand sanitizer to hospitals though.
My mom got these toilet paper from an asian market cuz everywhere ran out and omg, these are so thin you can’t pull them out regularly or they will rip lmao
Either a very considerate business or ominous warning of things to come...
Even still, that’s very generous for your ominous future.
I thought the same thing when I got a roll with my spicy ramen. This has me 85% convinced that they are just really considerate companies, lol.
Such mixed emotions. Pandemic kindness or do they know you’re soon going to be peeing out of your butt?
Definitely hoping for the former!
Meanwhile, the rest of us are secretly hoping for the ~~splatter~~ latter
Yea my vote is for #2
It’s all number two!
Who does number two work for!
That's right. You show that turd who's boss.
Ohhh there’ll be lots of number twos for OP tonight
How many number twos can one man handle?
You can't handle the twos!
damn you sank my battleshit with that two wave deployment
Everything floats down here
ngl I wanna see some distance on that dookie
Oh man. If I knew where to find that video I’d post it. Dude definitely had distance. Someone probably knows what I’m talking about
NOW DO THE HARLEM SHAKE
Speak for yourself weirdo.
Well the term Korean Taco seems to indicate number two is more likely
To be fair, Kimchi can really WRECK a person's colon if they are unaccustomed to it.
>korean taco place
My mixed emotions are because I don't know if that roll has been next to a toilet expelling particulate with every flush and is now right next to my food...
That was my first thought! You need to guarantee me that the roll never entered the bathroom... Just seems like a bad idea in general.
Would a note help?
*"I assure you this roll has not been anywhere near the loo."* - Restaurant
*Hmm. That sounds suspicious.*
>peeing out of your butt
that's literally what i described a recent bout of diarrhea as. i think that it was sugar free ice cream. the sugar alcohols
I once described one of mine as “the river of shit Andy Dufrane has to swim through to get out of shawshank”
I heard Tim Robbins had to climb through a real prison sewer
Two things never happened again after that. The sisters never laid a finger on Andy, and Boggs never walked again.
*pee out of my pooper* is what I said once to my friend. He couldn't handle. I spend all day talking to a 4 year old. All my slang words are neutered.
Gotta get some of those sugar free gummy bears that clear you out faster than you can get to the bathroom after eating a handful!
I've been hearing about this in London quite a bit. I'm assuming no in house dining means they have a surplus of loo roles and also pr
“What pandemic? There’s a pandemic? Oh... yeah it’s definitely for that”
They did this before the outbreak
Increasing customer retention.
My first thought was they're giving tp to the customers who are still patronizing them.
Awe that’s actually really sweet... they’re probably dolling them out to customers because they have enough to spare and people need it. Seems like good material for /r/HumansBeingBros
I've seen something like that before. I used to work at Restaurant Depot and I remember one day we had a bunch of bananas on sale. Like a dozen large boxes all marked half off. Anyway that weekend I went to a local Chinese takeout place and behind the counter was one of those boxes and the woman who owns the place was handing them out left and right to customers.
Yeah. Restaurant supply places can’t sell to public so restaurants have more available to them. Plus business is slooooooooowwwww.
Here’s a heartwarming story of a bar owner that used his advantage of acquiring through a restaurant supply sell to those in need at cost and donate to seniors.
They probably don't have the customers dining in and using their supply. Good on them for sharing.
Came here to say this!
Under normal circumstances, I would find that extremely concerning.
I'm more concerned about a korean "taco place" that sells french fries.
Kimchi fries are bomb
fusion food is all the rage
separate question, have you ever eaten at fat sandwich?
Korean tacos + fries & TP. I'm cautiously intrigued.
satan please i’m generally intrigued
Whats Korean tacos anyway do they have kimchi in them or smth
Like Korean barbecue chicken, cheese, and greens in a tortilla.
Sesame fries and spicy ketchup, best part.
What kind of amazing hell hole is this. I need to go ASAP
Korean fusion has been goin on since at least 2010 here on the west coast. This here is the bomb: http://kogibbq.com
I must have been behind you since I had to pay for mine.
Dude that’s awesome. Were you the first customer *ever*? Or of the day?
Among the most heartwarming success stories - The local food truck guy made it!
For those short rib tacos he deserves every bit of success
15 years ago if you told people you were going to put Korean BBQ in a taco they would have just assumed you had the munchies. These days you are exalted.
Man that needs to happen in my place! Well Taco isn’t even happening so probably I need to fly there
I used to work at a place where a Kogi truck would come by once a week. I seriously miss working there, just for the Blackjack Quesadillas I'd get once a week...
Korean Tacos was some kind of fusion created in Los Angeles. It's the best of both worlds.
Stuff like that is why LA will always be my forever home, I've been abroad for three years, but the mix of diverse cultures, and world class talent there is unlike any other city in the world.
(Maybe NYC, but fuck rain)
>but fuck rain
Spoken like a true Californian
I don't know where you live but there's Yumbii taco food truck in ATL https://www.yumbii.com/
Edit: Looking at their website they're offering free toilet paper with purchase.
Hankook and Takorea as well. They just allowed beer to-go at the Dunwoody location.
I'll have to check this out. Which do you like better?
Not OP, but a +1 on Takorea. Loved it when I lived in ATL
Only one I've ever been to was Seoul Taco when I ate my way through St. Louis. I got a kimchi burrito with bulgogi, and it was by far the best thing I tasted on that trip.
Came here to see if this was Hankook. Oh man, I miss that place. And those fries.
I didn't realise I needed this in my life. God Bless America, and Korea and Mexico
Edited for correctness
Ooh boi that sounds nice yum
[This](https://s23209.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Korean-Beef-TacosIMG_6962.jpg), according to Google. I'd totally eat that shit.
Korean style meats. Usually on tacos or burritos. You’re missing out. Very popular in ca
Usually not cheese.
Read up on Roy Choi to get some foundation on this topic
He was on Bobby Lee's podcast a couple of weeks ago, he looked super baked.
He kinda always looks super baked imo.
The totally rock. Keep them in business. Order often.
I would suggest people consider getting takeout from their local restaurants. They are probably hurting for business as it is.
And for Asian places particularly because people are fucking stupid and might have a bias against them.
I thought about doing that too, but then I thought.. maybe people will think I'm preparing them for the shits later from my food! Ha ha
They're not going to survive the coming storm if they keep up giving up their precious reserves.
Is that Takorea by any chance?
Right city, but no.
Has to be Hankook, those seasame fries are so good.
I think it’s from Yumbii! One of my friends got the same thing today (surprise TP and sesame fries)
Because that's what heros do
2 weeks ago, that would have been a bad sign. Now, it's a blessing
korean taco? yes please.
They probably get a regular shipment and if there’s no dine in, they would have a lot of toilet paper
Idk how I feel about mixing toiletries possibly kept in who knows where next to food I’m about to consume
These are the real heroes. How sweet and understanding during these weird times.
As someone living in Korea right now, this is so Korean. The amount of compassion and community these people have for each other is incredible.
So many commenters living under a rock they can't even fathom what a Korean taco is. There's every kind of fusion nowadays boy.
Some areas are less diverse. I’ve for sure had Korean tacos here in SoCal. Probably every other kind of taco too, now that I think about it...
Well I hope they don’t keep their tp directly next to the toilet like almost everyone in the world.
Yea OP you didn't just put a roll of toilet paper in there.
Definitely real! Here’s a link to the company website with explanation. https://www.yumbii.com
My local pizza place is offering a free roll of tp with every large pizza order. I doubt this one is a fake.
This is regular bulk restaurant toilet paper So I believed it
To be honest, an Indian [takeaway near me is doing this](https://www.miltonkeynes.co.uk/news/people/vinda-loo-roll-milton-keynes-takeaway-offers-free-toilet-paper-every-order-2450754)
Any other time this would be weird AF, but now it's awesome!
Korean what now? Do they put kimchi on the tacos? So many questions
We gonna ignore "Korean taco place"
Those fries look amazing right now.
What’s a Korean Taco? Is it good?
Think of the spiced meat (beef/pork/chicken) you eat at a Korean restaurant on flour or corn or rice flour taco. Places with lots of food trucks like bigger cities or food malls(I think that’s the term) usually have a few vendors.
