Men and bog rolls

Spotted we're out of loo roll, as I'm about to head out the shops I manage to find not one but three practically full rolls laying around the house... next to his bit of the sofa, side of the bed etc.

What is it with men and toilet paper?!? I remember my dad was the same, leaving a trail of dog eared, half finished rolls in his wake.

Why not just use tissues, or take what they need and leave the roll?

AIBU that it's grim?!

Ah yes, must be all men.

YABU, inconsiderateness isn't restricted to men. My DH doesn't do it, my daughter does though!

I used to live with my best friend and she did this. DP does it, seems I shall never be free, drives me up the fucking wall. The worst bit is that both of them will blow their nose on some loo roll then stuff the used bit in the centre of the tube and keep packing it in until it starts spilling out, DPs side of the bed looks like he's been wanking solidly for months.

In the interests of balance, DP has literally no other disgusting habits- I'm generally the grimbo in this house!

My GF does this with post sex tissue....
Then puts the roll on the floor near the radiator....
The heat then makes the 'fluids' on the tissue evaporate....
It is as grim as it sounds...

Oh god, I can never unread that DJKK there are no words.

If my OH uses the last of the loo roll he moves the loo roll off the holder to beside the bin. Winds me right up!

Well DJJK you know claim the title of comment that make me instantly regret starting a thread. Actually heaved reading that confused

And I did consider the PC brigade, this is sort of lighthearted.

I balance the new loo roll on top of the empty loo roll tube that's still attached to the wall holder. It makes DP want to gently beat me to death with the new loo roll. I understand where he's coming from but in my defence, I like the effect you get from pulling the loo roll off the top one and getting a moving cog effect of both rolls turning as you do it.

If anyone could suggest some hobbies for me these would be much appreciated grin

Not all men I can assure you. Sounds like your OH is prone to having a sneaky wank and using the toilet paper to clean himself up.

SNORT. Yes Her, logical answer there. I'm surprised I haven't noticed it whilst we're watching TV together... the one I found in the kitchen must've been for his daily post-dishwasher emptying jolly... yes?

HerOtherHalf Sun 12-Feb-17 13:25:55

The kitchen is a strange one I agree, but you just never know what locations the furtive onanist might find appropriate for a quick hand shandy. Next time he shouts that he'll be through once he's finished with this load, don't assume he's emptying the dishwasher.

Never had that experience in my life. We have a box of tissues in the lounge and bedroom, that eliminates the need for half-used bog roll to be littered around the place.

ArchNotImpudent Sun 12-Feb-17 13:36:17

No, my DH doesn't do this. His particular loo-roll related annoying trait is to moan about the idea of buying any unless we're down to the last roll - whereas I like to have a good supply in store. I don't understand it at all - the usual bulk-purchase warnings don't apply - it's not as though we aren't going to get round to using it or it will go off.

I could cope with that as long as it is clean loo roll. A guy I briefly knew kept an old bit of towel in his bag for blowing his nose, the one time I saw it it was solid and made crackly noises as he pulled it out. Boak.

I will say this - both DF and DP hate buying toilet roll. DP says that everyone knows you are going for a big hairy shit hmm

I tell him not to be so stupid, nobody thinks that.

Anyway, the other night he popped out for a quick pint, and, under protest, was instructed to pick up a pack of 9 Andrex from the sains local on his way home.

He arrived home and just glowered at me. Then he burst out, "I TOLD you what people would think!!!"

Turns out he was too cheap to buy the 5p bag and as he was walking home with them, a car went past and someone yelled out of the window: "HAVE A NICE SHIT, MATE!!!"

Hahahahahaha grin
