Toilet Roll Experimentation

I noticed last week that the toilet roll in one of the kids’ bathrooms (we have a boys’ bathroom and a girls’ bathroom) was practically finished. It is a pet peeve of mine that other than the KoD absolutely NO ONE else in this house notices that there is no more bathroom tissue. It’s like there is a neon sign in front of them flashing “need new toilet paper roll” but they don’t have the visual ability to decipher the sign.

I figured I would just leave it as is and see how long it takes for them to realize it needs changing. It’s now Tuesday morning, a full 4 days since I started this exercise. I just changed the roll myself, because it was starting to eat at me.

Apparently, if I would have removed the Kleenex box, then they may have realized there was no bog roll. Maybe. But then again, who knows? That tissue box can sit there empty for days on end until someone (usually me) decides to replace it with a new one.

Do you have a similar issue in your house?

    Ummmm….. Do bears go in the woods? Do boys go wherever and however they please?

    (They’ll never see it on their own but I DO make them change it instead of doing myself after 4 days…..)

      I thought of making them do it, but then we’d have to have a “discussion” over whose turn it was to do it, and at 6 am that’s the last thing I need. (Obviously the first thing any one needs at 6 am is coffee!!)

    I had roommates who would never tear shabbos paper leaving it up to two of us every week. One week we went on strike. No one stepped up and we were find since we had our own stash (no sharing!). Frustrating, but what can ya do?

    Hubsters is pretty good about changing the main roll, but I’m still on shabbos tearing duty!
