I am running from bathroom to bathroom, really having to go, and realizing the toilet paper rolls are empty in every. single. one.

As I pass though the living room:

Me: “Cripes, am I the only person in this house who knows how to change a toilet paper roll?!? ”

Husband, not looking up from video game: “Just look at it as job security!”

    Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice. That’s like QueenofSpain & Kaiser’s thing the other day when he told her she smelled like a woman ’cause she smelled like Clorox wipes. Sometimes men just don’t know what’s good for them. Sheesh!

    He clearly isn’t expecting sex anytime soon, is he?

    Go on strike. Keep your own roll with you and see how long it takes for a roll to be replaced.

    nice…you have to love men and their no need for toilet paper 80% of time they visit the bathroom.

    I agree with Christina – it’s time for some kind of strike.

    I’m not married, but I live in a house with 3 other guys, and I find myself asking this question often.

    After I slapped him I would have peed in his lap and used his shirt to wipe with.

    Oh girl…

    I’m with Christina, carry your own roll and let them figure it out.

    He’d probably put it on the roll wrong anyway.

    I live in a house with my husband, two sons and elderly father, and I swear, I’m the only one switching the toilet paper also. And, I’m the only one who has it on the right way too! Hilarious post, thanks for sharing.

    Damn, I’m just jealous of the bathroom to bathroom part. I’d have to run from bathroom to backyard!

    Do you remember the show “Mad About You.” Once there was an opening where Jamie came storming into the living room where Paul was reading a magazine. She had a full roll of toilet paper in one hand and an empty one on the holder in the other. She snatched the empty roll off and jammed the fresh one on right in his face and then stormed back out. To this day it remains one of my favorite moments.
