to want to slap my DH for suggesting

that we buy the new star printed Andrex toilet rolls?

I mean, we have only lived together for 9 years and have never, except under exceptional circumstances (the shop being sold out of white rolls), used anything but white plain toilet rolls. Even then we pushed the boat out and went for cream.

No quilted crap, no scented rigmarole, no sodding pictures on it.

So why does he suggest that we buy massively overpriced bum wiping material???

YANBU.

He's an idiot for suggesting it. Who's he trying to impress anyway??

TheOriginalFAB Tue 31-May-11 19:58:51

YABU.

I think it is quite sweet.

SecretNutellaFix Tue 31-May-11 19:59:47

Fab, you aren't a 39 year old beardie bloke are you?grin

that's exactly what he said.

He's either hugely influenced by advertising or he's got a sore arse.

My dh bought the puppies on a roll one! It was 20p more and less sheets per roll. I told him off blush Kids thought it was great though!

TheOriginalFAB Tue 31-May-11 20:01:08

I am 39 but no to the rest of it grin.

Maybe he just wanted to brighten up the bathroom.

reelingintheyears Tue 31-May-11 20:03:21

I think you should get rid.

reelingintheyears Tue 31-May-11 20:04:18

DP says maybe he has piles and doesn't want to tell you because he's embarrassed about his bum hole.

I couldn't go for the puppies on a roll - it feels wrong to wipe your bottom on a small dog.

Pandemoniaa Tue 31-May-11 20:06:05

I'd be very suspicious. His arse suddenly needs extra special attention?

SecretNutellaFix Tue 31-May-11 20:07:47

Nah, nothing has changed in the arse department.

Sadly.

I bought the 4pack spotted and butterfly for my DDs birthday party to put in downstairs loo
£2 for 4 rolls.I thought 'what plonker buys this?'
Doh!
DD wasn't even with me!

I'm tempted to buy them just for the music festivals

We usually have boring old cheapo white paper. but on a bit of string around the neck
So it'll look more like a necklace

do you think it's a midlife crisis? it could be worse, (think ferrari)

Glitterknickaz Tue 31-May-11 20:19:11

I can't stand any kind of embossing, patterning, quilting or aloe vera (makes the poo slide off).

Bog (haha) standard white for me. Own brand.

Glitterknickaz Tue 31-May-11 20:19:59

Although my dad did have a roll with Margaret Thatcher's face printed on every square. We all enjoyed using that grin

worldgonemad72 Tue 31-May-11 20:24:04

i always get the snowman toilet roll at christmas blush

reelingintheyears Tue 31-May-11 20:24:09

My Mum gave us a sudoku loo roll for christmas...hmm

SecretNutellaFix Tue 31-May-11 20:26:01

he wants an Aston Martin.

yeah Right.

MooMooFarm Tue 31-May-11 20:26:08

Ah I don't know why but I think your H sounds very sweet. And at least he knows his place and asks your permission first before making such a major purchase smile

BunnyWunny Tue 31-May-11 20:27:40

Only quilted will do in our house- the plain stuff sticks to your arse and leaves bits of tissue tuck to your flaps.

SecretNutellaFix Tue 31-May-11 20:29:30

He can be very sweet. If he'd actually buy some before he uses the last roll, it would be sweeter.

Although he does now tell me we're on the last, so a huge improvement.

MumblingRagDoll Tue 31-May-11 20:31:45

Starry loo roll? Where? I want it!

SunshineisSorry Tue 31-May-11 21:28:03

Leave him!! its only going to get worse - he'll be wanting one of those fucking dolly toilet roll hiders soon
