I mean, she tells me it's because she hasn't got time, what with the baby and all but come on this activity only takes a second!!

Who doesn't do that? I even do it if I go to someone's house and use the last bit!

Unless she literally has the baby in her arms whilst on the loo she can do it. Do it while peeing!

If you have the toilet paper in the bathroom you can change it whilst on the toilet.

That is so definitely a blue job!!

freshloorollplease Sun 26-Feb-17 21:06:49

Preach it sisters!!

freshloorollplease Sun 26-Feb-17 21:08:39

Like to see you say that when you go in and don't have any to use after a banging number 2 shippers!

Whoever uses the last of it has to replace. Those are just the rules of a civilized society.

DH rarely manages to do this, or his favourite move is to leave a single square on the tube because he 'knows I don't like waste'
Even my 4 year old manages to do it angry

I always have a supply of spare rolls next to the toilet. I just don't have the time to put it on the holder!!

parentnotbabysitter Sun 26-Feb-17 21:13:57

Have time!? I call bullshit!

I visit my mothers, and every bloody time I'm there, I go to the loo, I change the roll, and I'm seen taking the tube to the bin in the kitchen which apparently triggers a standing ovation hmm

Wtf is a blue job?

MrsMuddlePluck Sun 26-Feb-17 21:15:14

You need my 3 sons! There's a loo roll holder next to the loo that holds 2 spares & 1 on a simple 'bar'. I have lost count of the times one roll is on the floor & another is in the bath!

HermioneJeanGranger Sun 26-Feb-17 21:15:39

YANBU, this drives me potty, so we've taken to keeping the pack of toilet paper next to the toilet instead.

NoArmaniNoPunani Sun 26-Feb-17 21:16:13

DH never does this. Silly man gets caught out when he curls one out and there's no bog roll

DoJo Sun 26-Feb-17 21:21:43

Is your holder one of those ones which needs faffing with? I always swore I would never have one of those spring-loaded ones and instead have ones where you just jam another roll on with one hand.

NapQueen Sun 26-Feb-17 21:22:26

Where do you all store your loo rolls? We keep ours next to the loo. Why would it be stored anywhere else

This video is appropriate for all ages

YY just keep them next to the loo.

Ladyshippers Sun 26-Feb-17 21:28:57

I thought everyone knew there were blue jobs and pink jobs??!!!

freshloorollsplease Sun 26-Feb-17 21:40:26

I would say a purple job there shippers.

We keep a supply by the toilet but have the big packs stored in the understairs cupboard. If someone uses the last upstairs they come down, gets stash out and leaves them on the stairs. Anyone going up and sees toilet rolls takes them into the bathroom.

We have a very simple loo roll holder, couldn't be faffed with having to unclick things. It's a basket thing for the spares and a bar to put on the one in use.

What examples of blue and pink jobs do people have? I'll start:

Blue: technical wizardry
Pink: changing nappies
