use the last piece of toilet paper and walk away without putting another roll on the holder?
Inevitably you've done your business, you reach out for some paper and there's nothing there!
It infuriates me.angry

in 8 years of living together my DH has never replaced the loo roll

and I always leave the cutlery draw open...

they most certainly will the irreconcilable differences in our(not yet imminent) divorce grin

no, perfectly reasonable.

Keep the spare loo roll within reaching distance of the loo. It's much easier than cleaning upall the blood.

The cutlery drawer thing I could live with, so long as you always set the microwave back to zero/the time display when you've finished with it.

DH will get a new roll out, but not put it on the holder, just balance it on the old roll. How hard is it to take the old roll off & put a new one on?? It's not like he hurrys when he's in extra 30 seconds won't kill him.

Even worse is the person who leaves ONE SQUARE of paper on the roll. So when you have a go at them for not changing it they say "but it's not finished yet".

My dh finishes off the coffee and puts the empty jar back in the cupboard. He's lucky he's not been castrated yet.

I keep spare rolls within reaching distance of the loo, so DH will change the roll. He is however oblivious to the fact that the spare rolls need replenishing from time to time, so I've still been caught out on occasion.

Try to maim in an area with wipe clean flooring.

Oh, stab with impunity, falcon.


salsmum Fri 26-Sep-08 17:24:07 here just big enuf to cover loo roll but too fcukin small to wipe a hampsters arse angry

I hate it when my DH changes the loo roll (good thing it hardly ever happens) because he always puts the new loo roll on the wrong way round

Aniyan Fri 26-Sep-08 17:25:53

Yep, I'm the only one who changes the roll here too.

I always notice the roll's finished before I do my business, but purely because I always have to wipe boy-pee off the seat before I can use the loo angry

JJ my dh puts it on the wrong way round too. Infuriating!

my bottom's a tad larger than a hamsters thats for sure. grin

falcon Fri 26-Sep-08 17:33:59

What is the wrong way round?

AnAngelWithin Fri 26-Sep-08 17:35:03

my DH opens a new loo roll then leaves it sitting on the top of the holder. on tha rare occasions he does change it properly, he puts it the wrong way round!! drives me mad!

nametaken Fri 26-Sep-08 17:36:35

Right, imagine the toilet roll when you pulled it so that a few sheets are down. These sheets should be nearest the wall the toilet roll holder is fixed to. The other way round is the wrong way.

I'm obsessive arn't I

platypussy Fri 26-Sep-08 17:39:27

No No No Nt!! That is the wrong way round! The sheets have to hang down the front, not against the wall!

TheInvisibleManDidIt Fri 26-Sep-08 17:40:51

God, this is my biggest bug bear.

My dh hasn't changes a toilet roll in 10 years!!

erm, and yeah, that is slightly obsessive nametaken. smile

platypussy Fri 26-Sep-08 17:41:37

Otherwise you run the risk of dirty marks on the wall where people repeatedly touch to get hold of the paper! We'll have to agree to disagree!!

sockmonkey Fri 26-Sep-08 17:47:23

Yes the paper flap needs to be at the front. All else is madness.
