The T.P. Experiment

A week or so ago I went into the bathroom to use the toilet (just to clarify, I have done this several times since as well) and found that the toilet paper roll on the holder was empty. There was a half roll sitting on top of the empty roll. There was a half roll sitting on the back of the toilet and an empty roll on the floor in front of the toilet.

What the heck??? Really Papa Bear? There is a garbage can right there under the holder so there was no reason for the empty roll on the floor. Apparently there was a need for a second half roll sitting on the empty holder because the roll on the tank was a whole reach around away?

It was at this point that I decided that I was NOT going to replace the roll either and see what happens. For a couple of days, nothing. The same collection of empty and half rolls. Then this morning I went in to have my morning piddle and low and behold, I almost fell off the damn throne, there on the holder was a brand new roll safely secured in its place.

By golly he can do it! I'm so proud.

Now that we have tackled the toilet paper my next mission is getting Papa Bear to pick up his underwear off the bathroom floor after he is done in the shower. Training a man really requires some patience. We made some real progress this week. Baby steps, baby steps.

Oh my word! This happens at our house too.
THe other thing that drives me crazy in the bathroom is when my husband empties his pockets before he puts his pants NEAR the dirty clothes basket and the just throws his change on the counter. The thing is, the change is lying on the counter right NEXT to the BOWL I placed there for him to put his change in! Is he blind?

Papa Bear used to do something similar with his change. That is until I started scooping it to support my Iced Capp addiction :)

I now have a sign above my toilet that reads "Changing the Toilet Paper Does Not Cause Brain Damage". Thanks for the gift Mrs. Smoke ;)
