How hard is it, really? Rocket science? I think not! Please tell me I'm not the only one with this problem!

I really like that picture! I am even thinking about printing it out and framing it and putting it on the wall in my bathroom - OVER the darn toilet paper roll.
maybe with a quote from one of those asinine "motivational" posters "Determination: striving to conquer challenges. You can do it"

Tina-cious.com said...

ROFLMAO!! I HATE that!!!

Kristen Andrews said...

my feelings exactly but my hubby is s stickler when it comes to TP being on the holder and it has to be facing a certain direction!

because I said so said...

YOU ARE DEFINATELY NOT THE ONLY ONE!!!

Under the Influence said...

I WISH I had that problem. I sit down only to find a totally empty roll and not a "refill" in sight!

Soxy Deb said...

You are not the only one with this problem.
Whats worse is when they put it on, but roll it under instead of over. OMG! Don't make me pick up my friggin glock people!!

Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

My hubby says that it is harder for my daughter to pull all the paper off the roll if it isn't on the holder, I disagree but that doesn't seem to stop him.

Annie said...

We have corrected this problem. Everyone is now fully trained.Even the 3 year old.She actually is my TP stocker. Every couple of days send her around to all the bathrooms and she keeps all of them stocked up!

The Daily Blonde said...

one of my biggest pet peeves.....and I have a lot of them. Grrr.

Faith said...

Ugh .. That happens at my house too and it drives me crazy!

Just A Chic... said...

I'm happy as long as there is some to be found.

Piece o' Coconut Cake said...

God, they're so annoying...

Travis Erwin said...

Okay, so I'm guilty.

What's my punishment?

Dr Zibbs said...

Uh....that's what moms and wives are for?

Mel Fraase said...

Oh, look, a photo of my bathroom! Thanks!!

Juliana said...

Haha...my husband does this EVERY single time. I will never ever understand this. I wonder what would happen if we left it this way when the NEXT one ran out...then what would they do???!!

Jen said...

My husband can fix just about anything in our house but when it comes to the simplest tasks like this one he pretends he plays the role of a mentally challenged person. So annoying!

Sarah said...

Oh so annoying!

Sarah said...

Apparently I also am the only one in our house that took "How to replace the TP 101"

Deb said...

again! you have snuck into my house and taken a photo of my mess! literally... same paint color and white paper holder and everything.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Oh, Tena...LOL! I love it!

Dorsey said...

Oh yes!! This is a phenomenon that baffles hundreds of thousands of households. It seems only the mom in these houses can accurately replace the roll properly. hehe

♥ spoiled mommy ♥ said...

hahhaaaa!!
You are NOT the only one!!
That annoys the piss out of me too! ;)

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

oh no...I could take that picture on a weekly basis...

Lee of MWOB said...

HA HA HA!! You should win an award with that photo!! Classic!!

And you're not alone but I have these new toilet paper holders where it's open on one side so it's really really easy to slip on a new roll.

:-)

Mary Moore said...

You are definitely not the only one. You should see our place...

The Mom Jen said...

Ugh, ours was sitting on the bathtub today...seriously, if I wasn't so embarassed I'd take a pic of my "hubby's bathroom" and all the rolls on the floor. I think he's collecting them!

Errant said...

ha ha .. i do that sometimes ..

Lori said...

At least you get the new roll on top of the empty one. In my house, EVERY TIME I go to the bathroom, I am greeted by an empty roll. Every freakin' time.

Honeybell said...

Um . . . no. My husband has that problem too.

*GUILT*
