Or do they hide it? It certainly disappears awfully quickly. I'm going to ration it.

When DS1 was small I found him putting the toilet paper in the toilet while still on the roll then flushing so the toilet roll spun on the holder, he thought it was the funniest thing ever!!!

DP wadges it up and uses it to make a landing pad when he has a crap, thats where ours goes Hmm

Landing pad Grin is better than an inadvertent enema. It's the opposite in our house, DD and I seem to use loads, not that I monitor it.

When I was younger I hated going to the bathroom after my brother as he'd usually clogged it up with toilet paper. I never told my mum as I would have been mortified in case she thought I'd blocked it, so I always just unclogged it myself. Fortunately my husband seems to use normal amounts.

Other way round in our house. Dh has a "one square for a wee, two squares for a poo" rule Grin.

My nephew goes through so much my sil has told him he has to buy his own out of his allowance!

and we use both sides. very carefully. no sense in waste.

I have 3 boys and a Husband. I can confirm they all think their arses are somehow superior and more deserving of as much bog roll as possible Hmm

girl at work was actually suspected of stealing loo roll but turned out she used reams of the stuff even for a wee.

My husband's the same - I swear I got through about a quarter of the loo roll when I lived on my own. Madness.
