There is a right way and a wrong way to do everything...

If I find the roll in the bathroom hanging under again instead of correcting it I'm going to do this...

and of course I'm talking about the bathroom at work.  At home 3 out of 5 of us think this is the proper way...when they bother at all.

It's not rocket surgery people...replace the roll properly and no one will get hurt.

I put mine on the counter.  Because Cat and the toilet paper holder is above the cat box.  I am not tempting fate.  

Otherwise, yes, over not under (I have cleaned rooms in a motel and you cannot make the cute point with the end of the TP if it is under)

Tp wars are something I don't get. I'm just glad when there is a replacement roll.

Oh and at work, we have the giant rolls.  And it is horrible TP.  Very thin and scratchy.

Yep, I'm the toilet owner replacer both at work and at home too.  Even if someone does start a new roll, why is it so difficult for them to put the empty roll in the garbage bin?  It's right there, next to the toilet at home.  Yes at work there's no bin in the bathroom (and I just don't get that but I'm a minion and it's not my decision) but if you finish it, take it out to the kitchen two metres away and throw it out!

Preach it, sister!  Probably TMI but in all my bathrooms at home you can change the roll and throw the old one out without getting off the toilet.  I store the new rolls in easy reach as a defensive maneuver and the garbage is right there.  It's the ultimate lazy act ...but it also takes seconds for me to fix so getting worked up about it isnt the best use of my time either.

its one of those things.

Yep, downstairs bathroom you can reach for the new roll on the windowsill (placed there by me when the roll is half empty because no one else is capable of such foresight), replace the roll, throw out the old one, all while sitting.  Maximising efficiency.  

In the upstairs bathroom, you can reach for the new roll placed on the shelf at the end of the bath (placed there by me when the roll is half empty, because no one else is capable of such foresight), replace the roll, but you have to *gasp* open the cupboard under the sink one step away to throw it in the bin.  Despite my best efforts at training my family, no one else has mastered this skill :( but as you say there's no point in getting worked up about it.

We have each other for solidarity...we can love our families despite their selfish limitations. :)

My kids aren't quite dextrous enough to change the toilet paper rolls yet, but if the 5 year old is nearby when I take off the empty cardboard tube, I never have to carry it to the recycling. "Can I have it to play with?"

I go through the collection of paper towel and toilet paper tubes every so often and recycle the most squished and abused ones. When the 5 year old is not around, of course!

      Those dresses look pretty sparkling white and fit perfectly.  The tulle is also pretty stiff.  I vote new for Addie's wedding. 

      They are probably just trying them on to make sure they fit before the wedding next month.

      Not homemade...the brand is called Matilda Jane and it’s pretty popular with Southern mamas and definitely not cheap. It’s hard to get a good deal even second hand. It’s not quite as popular as it was five years ago, but a lot of little southern girls still wear it (and not just homeschoolers) and big bows. It’s a cultural thing. I’m kind of surprised none of the Duggar girls have gotten into the smocked dresses for their girls yet, because those are also pretty popular down south.

      god, I just had a look at the website and it all looks a hot mess to me. Each to their own but ruffles on ruffles on ruffles! Ruffles on jeggings! Ruffles on khaki! Not to mention the pattern mixing.

      Clearly not for me, but I'm kind of fascinated by it now!

    • Kennedy and Andrew appear to be having a weekend away in the keys. I know it's a little soon but last time they did this she was pregnant.  I'm betting that she will be soon if not already.

      Joy’s lack of interest in facts and truth (Fauci’s quotes don’t accurately show what he actually said - thanks, @llg1234 for doing the fact checking for us) is an annoying but useful reminder. We really shouldn’t allow ourselves to get drawn into the whole family and baby narrative. For me, at least, the political affiliations of Joy and her family became somewhat less apparent recently: there are no pro life rallies to attend or robocalls to make during a pandemic. So, I was aware of their right wing stance of course, but I didn’t really focus on it enough. Now they’re back in the foreground for me, which I appreciate.

      Considering they changed the children's name due to adoption (whether you agree with families who do this is another issue) rather than due to being Mormon and many families of all belief systems who adopt have been known to do the same, I don't see it as a form of thought control or LDS-specific at all.

       

      But according to the OP EVERYTHING has to do the BITE model. I can't roll my eyes back any further when he posts that nonsense over and over in response to just about everything without breaking my head.
