I'm talking about in the bathroom. At my family's house, somehow I am ALWAYS the one who has to refill the toilet paper. Everyone else leaves the empty roll on the toilet paper holder, and I always wind up using the bathroom with no toilet paper left! w.

I know join the club I'm the one who replaces the toilet paper in both bathroom. Yes they all know where the toilet paper is but I'm the one who replaces it. I feel its just people taking advantage of me and I just get so aggravated by this. They have never told me "why didn't you refill it?" Because they know then that I would never refill it again, and only refill the one in my bathroom. Family members can be so rude sometimes.

I feel the exact same way about the dishes. I feel like I rarely make dishes; yet I do them EACH and EVERY night. Gross stuff, too. I'm a vegetarian but somehow I always end up hand-washing these dishes with meat residue on them. *rolls eyes*. Can't people clean up after themselves? It's not like they don't know how to wash dishes!! I am probably a culprit of forgetting to change the toilet paper roll though.

I have a toilet paper holder that you just store them in. I don't have to put it on the roll if I don't want to. I think they are great for the bathroom as well.

they do that to me too.even worse if they do change it,they leave the old roll on top of the new one when the trash can is less than 2 feet away. you'd think it was rocket science to change it..

Hmm... maybe they are just being used to having you replenish the toilet roll, that's why you always get the blame when someone finds out that there is not more toilet paper to use. On the other hand, it seems that you always visit the loo at the wrong time - when there is no more toilet paper left, and poor you have to replenish it! I'm not sure where your family stock up the toilet rolls. For my case, the rolls are always stocked up at a cabinet inside the toilet. So things like someone shouting for help in the loo is not common. Or you probably can practise what we used to do during my army days. Every soldier will be given a toilet roll every now and then. Need to pass motion? Bring your own roll with you. In this way, no one is responsible for refilling the empty roll. Of course, you can sit down and discuss with your family members about your agony and brainstorm to come out with a better solution.

Hmmm..well it seems that your family considers it one of your jobs...It's very annoying I can imagine since when I was younger and lived at home, it was somehow my job too. No idea why my siblings couldn't or wouldn't do it. Never really brought it up to them tho..just did it. Maybe since it annoys you, you should go on strike and just make sure you have what you need and never refill it. Eventually they might start to do it themselves since no one wants to be "stuck" per se without it!

Hello olisaur...well there is four of us tht live in this house my husband, myself and our two children and surprisily enough I have never really had to worry about the problem...we are all pretty good about changing the toilet paper. I make sure that I keep the new rolls under the sink so it is always real easy to get to that way no one has the excuse not to change it...

That's really annoying, isn't it? I live by myself, so I always remember to replace the toilet paper, and for when people come visit I have one of those toilet paper roll hangers so the toilet paper can be easily spot to be changed. However, when I didn't live by myself my family would forget about replacing toilet paper all the time

Hahaha!Toilet papers' absence in the bathroom/comfort room is not a problem in our country. We are not used to using toilet papers to clean off our behind. What we do is to get a small container/canister with water and wash off our behind using your hands, then after that wash your hands thoroughly. There was a time when a citizen of our country was terminated from his job abroad because of using water to clean off his behind. You see, we are not comfortable using toilet papers so wherever part of the planet we go, rest assured that this will be carried on.

This is a common phenomena everywhere in all the houses, whether refilling toilet paper or refilling groceries in the containers in the kitchen. In my house, me and my husband both of us cook. When I get groceries, it is me who has to fill up the container with that item. When he sees the empty container, he shouts. But now, after my repeated back answers, he is also refilling them.

Maybe it's because I grew up with two sisters, but I am also always pissed off when men don't put the seat down for potential women in co-ed bathrooms. Also, there have been a few times when I have made my friends wash their hands when they have failed to.

Toilet paper has to be one of the most annoying things in the world. There's something about it that bugs everyone. Either it doesn't get replaced, you can't find the end, the cat knocked it into the bowl again and when you move out to live on your own you realize the most terrifying thing of all. It doesn't just appear there via the toilet paper fairies....you actually have to GO to the store and BUY it....ALOT.

I also really hate when that happens, olisaur!It does seem to conveniently run out on my turn to use the bathroom. A still small voice from deep within whispers to me that the last one in there deliberately used all of it with full knowledge that my turn was coming up!

I usually bring to rolls of paper with me, so if one is getting done, I bring another one, so there is never lack of paper in my bathroom. It seems to me that other members of my family act the same, so we don't have the same problem, like you do.

Isn't that just the worst! Or in my house if you can find the roll it's the one they tossed behind the toilet that the kids got wet in the sink or tub I'm not using that mess! So I have to yell like a fool for someone to bring me a roll. Or when I have room I put a couple rolls on the high shelf so I don't have to yell for a roll.

That is one of the many advantages of living alone! Another thing that always annoyed me when I was married was that I'd keep a supply of TP in the bathroom and occasionally it would mysteriously be gone when I wanted to replace a roll. One of the boys had taken it to their bathroom rather than tell me they were running low. Since it was kept in the hall closet and not in my and my husband's bathroom and I didn't check it every day, that meant I had to go to the store, often sooner than I had planned.

hi olisaur seems like in every family there are at least one who just doesnt get the idea of replacing the toilet paper.Unless they are like me, the holder hates me. I get the wrapping off the role, big job at times, get the end started. pull out the holder, insert the roll, push it back in and give it a mild pull so it shoots off the holder and holder goes on the floor, tp roll in the trash can, and me I am saying,damn, what the heck, so finally I get the thing in and it actually works. I tell you the holder hates me.
