    Angry Why is it...

    that I seem to be the ONLY one who seems to care that there is a new toilet paper roll in each dispenser? I always seem to come when the person before me has finished the roll. Coincidence? I think not.

    If you find out the answer, will you let me know? Now, I can understand that the 3 y.o. doesn't have the manual dexterity to change the ones in our house (they're not the usual spring-pressure rolls), but even the ADULTS seem to think that sticking a new roll on top of a flat surface within arm's reach is the same as replacing the roll....

    Shoot, I'd even settle for that! We have tiny bathrooms so I keep the huge packs of toilet paper in a closet downstairs but I have those stick things there you can store 4 rolls in each bathroom. But no one ever thinks to get new rolls when the supply runs low! Grrr. And what is disturbing me is that it doesn't seem to bother them. I mean, I'm the only one running to the closet to get new rolls but judging by what I find in the bowls (aaaarrrghhh) I KNOW that I'm not the only one who uses the toilet!

    I think my older kids failed reading comprehension when they first heard "If it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down!" in a movie somewhere!

    snoopy- I think that's just boys...you should see the shuffle I have to do when we have guests over and they need to use the bathroom. Somebody does not get the concept of flushing!!!

    I just wish there was a roll within reach of the seat. Also, where the heck does it GO!? They are both boys, what do they DO with that much paper? Seems like every time I go in there I have to dig another roll out from under the sink.

    Everyone in my house is generally good about at least pulling out another roll, usually actually replacing the empty one. My problem is that I seem to be the only person in the house who doesn't pee on the seat. I have to check the seat every time I go in there & have to wipe it off at least twice a day.

    This used to happen alot to me. Until I didn't replace the roll one day. I dug one out from under the sink, took what I needed, and shoved it back under the sink. Half hour later hubs starts yelling about toilet paper and where the hell is it? I informed him that had he ever replaced rolls he finished off in the past he would know where they were stored. He tried to deny it but since then he hasn't yelled about toilet paper. Now I am working on the kids.

    That is so funny (all of you!!). Nathalie, I know just what you mean. Sometimes I think I am the only one who cares to replace the toilet paper when it is out. And, Brandi, as much as it pains me to admit it, yours is not the only household with a messy toilet seat. Good grief--how hard is it to not miss when you are a male? I mean, you have the ability to aim! Use it already.

    Same thing happens around here. I am usually the one who wakes up to use the bathroom at 2am only to discover (after fumbling around in the dark first) that SOMEONE didn't replace the roll after they used the bathroom before bedtime. lol.

    Exactly! What I really don't get is how both my husband and son can hit the seat when they put the seat UP to pee.
