Have you seen this commercial?
This is a terrible version I found on YouTube, but perhaps you've seen the real version when you accidentally forgot to fast forward the commercials in your nightly DVR catching-up session (that's how I saw it).
So the message I get out of this is spend more time with your family by using paper plates at every meal. Like your children are really going to suffer in that 10 minutes you spent away from them loading the dishwasher. Whatever happened to teaching your kids how to do their own dishes?
Now, don't read me wrong here. I am not anti-paper products. I do believe that some situations warrant the use of disposable dishes and utensils--although one of the things I hate most is to see a garbage can full of used paper plates and cups. I do use them, though, when necessary.
I mean, I hate doing dishes like the rest of the world, but I think that this is very irresponsible advertising.
