Today my sis cooked lunch for dad and myself; I gave dad a paper napkin to wipe his mouth on.
When he finished his meal, he wiped - then I could see that napkin heading for his pocket, to be kept!! So I calmly walked round the table, took it from his hand, and popped it in the kitchen bin.....he kind of blinked but said nothing.
He has a bad habit of taking little pieces of toilet paper to use to wipe his eyes, or if he cuts himself, in spite of the fact that he has heaps of hankies, boxes of tissues, wads of cotton for meedical purposes.....he sees the use of toilet paper as being economical. Well, toilet paper is not particularly cheap any more and I told him so. PLus it's embarrassing if I take him for a hospital visit and he pulls out a little scrap of toilet paper to blow his nose on...aaarhg!!!
