    If that were my house,every last one of those holders would be empty every time I came home off the road,and had to sit on the throne.
    The way the two ladies at my house go through paper you would think they were eating the stuff.

    I have 3 ladies and one other male in the house. I buy TP by the case and it seems like I am always getting a fresh roll. I make them fetch it if there is none when I sit on the throne of deep thinking.

    I thought I was the only one that had this problem. As I have gotten older I now understand why my dad always got pissed when the roll was empty. For me it isn't that there isn't a roll hanging up , it's that the empty rolls ..usually 2 or 3 are on the counter top.

    I call that good on my kids. Smoke bomb and bangers cylinders. Waste not want not. Already paid for and well made ;) . Usually I have to pray the tubes are not that deep under the rest of the garbage to add to my "prep" bag.

    waste not, want not

    I routinely hit building site dumpsters after asking permission from the site supervisor for plywood and 2 by scraps. I read somewhere, Fine Homebuilding magazine I think, that the average house being built wastes 3400 pounds of lumber that goes into dumpsters. Better me than the landfill.

    My dad always said to but TP and soap and toothpaste so you never ran out. He said even if you didn't have cash you always need to be clean and take care of hygeine issues. So wehn he got laid off we always had those thing in plenty so we didn't have to buy them and the enenjoyment check went for food and a roof over our heads....The older I get the smarter my Old Man gets...in most areas at least.

    Not just TP either.... Women use Significantly MORE water, for everything, than Men do.... It is just their nature.... so get used to it, if you live with females.....

    Theres a wood bin at werk for throwing the busted pallets from my Shipping Dept & wood scraps from the Maintenance guys building projects in. Any decent or reusuable pieces of wood come home with me. Once, 5 sheets of slightly scratched up plexiglass that big enough to cost $90 EACH came home with me from that bin :D

    :lol: @ beast.

    I bet she doesn't really need all of that stuff. She's just making sure you stay on your own side. It's her "fence". ;)
