Anyone Else Dislike Cloth Napkins?

I know I'm in the minority on this, but I do not like cloth napkins, even in a very formal setting. I understand that it is customary and expected, but it bugs me. I feel like I'm wiping my mouth on my shirt. I like the fact that the paper napkin I use gets thrown away, and that the one I'm using has never been used by anyone else. And I'm not a complete germophobe. Does anyone else feel this way?

(I also prefer placemats to tablecloths. Is this related?)
