Hahahaha!! I am SO sorry, but I have to laugh. WHY you ask? Because I’m your Darling Husband. I am notorious for that. Or if (IF) I remember to grab a new roll, I just set it on the sink. I never put it on the holder. Am I a messy/dirty person? I don’t think so. That’s just one little thing that I never think to do. I always justify it to him by saying “I do most of the rest of the chores, you can do that” HA! (Which is total crap, and we both know it).

I can’t do much to help your situation, but my Darling Husband sure does send you his sympathies 😉

I feel your pain!  Try living in a house with Darling Husband and teenagers, and for some reason I am the only person that is capable of replacing the roll.  I have resorted to placing a laundry basket full of TP right by the toilet so that when the roll is empty, at least I’m not left stranded.  I can get a roll from the basket.  Of course, no one fills the basket with TP except me!

@2ndtime: I might suggest that to DH! 🙂

I caught myself in a pickle once though. Darling Husband was at work, I was home…with an empty t.p. roll! So I drip dryed then waddled to the other bathroom (that has the linen closet) with a towel under me LOL oh if you could have been a fly on the wall………

@KansasPrincess11: I’ve been there, more times than I’d like to admit.  Lol!  That’s when I came up with the laundry basket idea.

@firsttimemom:  Lol!  I have to be honest, I gave up on the whole roll replacing thing and just set it on top of the back of the toilet.  I’m bad about not replacing it also.  :/  You could get one of these tall rods that you put all the paper on and he could just roll on down! lol.  I can’t find a picture of what I mean…

Ok, please disregard that it looks like a giant sperm.

Fiance replaces ours pretty well. Only because we give the roll to the dog after we’re done. The dog will hear us finish the roll and come running.

My husband will go from our bathroom to the other bathroom to get the fresh roll… and then just place it on top of the empty old roll rather than actually throwing out the old roll and putting the new one of the holder.  REALLY?? You can get the new roll but you can’t take two seconds to complete the task!?

I’m just thankful he ALWAYS puts the seat down.  My ex-husband left it up most of the time.  Falling in is not fun!

Yeah, I’m pretty much the only one who ever replaces the roll in our house.  I swear to God FI will use the teeniest amounts of toilet paper just so he won’t get to the end of the roll, because then he’ll have to change it.  That being said, the (very) few times that he’s changed the roll, I usually end up “fixing” it after him, because I’m a stickler for the roll hanging over, and not under.

Honestly, I have learned to no longer let those things bug me. My SO so does many things for me,that I had to do for myself all the years I was on my own as a single parent,  I just couldn’t bring up something so insignificant.

We have a 3 roll holder by the toilet so I just make sure it is filled regularly and I am never in that position.

my husband and i have separate bathrooms but im guilty of not telling him when im almost out of toilet paper – and as a result last time he bought me 12 dozen… yes dozen, rolls of toilet paper and there is a 7ft tower of toilet paper in my bathroom right now

FI’s excuse is that “You use it more than I do.” It is so not my fault I have a vagina. Lol! I mean, he does *sort of* have a point but still. He also can’t manage to get stuff from a counter to the trash can and/or sink. It requires entirely too much effort..

SO has this funny habit of getting and starting a new roll when the old one isn’t quite empty.. He does the same with the milk too.. It’s like the last bits aren’t good enough! I guess i should consider myself lucky but i laugh everytime he does it!
