At my workplace there are two places you find paper towel. The washrooms and the kitchenettes. In both places they use the exact same paper towel, but in different dispensers. I'm not mystified that they use different dispensers, but there is a fundamental difference between them that I do not understand.
Do you see what I'm talking about? The washroom paper towel dispenser has a lock on it.
Why does the washroom paper towel need protection, while the kitchenette paper towel doesn't?
