So I don't really see what the big deal is
The big issue with leaving it on the sink here is that when DH comes home from work and washes his face and arms or brushes his teeth he ends up splashing water everywhere - effectively soaking the roll.

You know, I tried this one time in our house and we seem to have the "Indy 500 toilet paper unwrapper" going on amongst us cause I would find the roll almost unraveled on the floor constantly.

Therefore, by my calculations, I was achieving a TP-turnover-time of approximately 2.004 seconds per change, per bathroom -- despite the handicap of obsolete technology!

Color me proud.
ok, weekly total [you silly goof!] 1 bathroom, 1 person, change the MEGA roll [same as 3 regular rolls, btw] about every 2 days or so during the week. so weekly would be about 6 seconds!

Good grief! You go through 9 rolls of toilet paper in a week for one person!?!! What on earth do you do with it; wash dishes?!

I'm single and I go through 2 regular 2 ply rolls per week.

no... maybe i overestimated the changing rate? but yes, i use it for blowing my nose, cleaning up cat vomit, wiping off the bathroom counter, cleaning hair out of the bathtub drain... lots of things!

I go through a lot, too.

But I have ulcerative colitis and sometimes can't help it.

Maybe you could just talk to your so and let him know it bothers you when he doesn't change it- perhaps he doesn't realzie how much it bothers you?
Oh, Nikki! You two are so newlyweds!

Isn't TCS great? Where else could you have 3 pages of posts about TP except for maybe the Georgia Pacific home page?

DH never changes the roll. But, if you read my other posts, he never does much of anything in the way of cleaning up or setting up. But you guys just gave me a great idea! DH must not like where the TP holder is (this is not true because it is within an easy reach of your left arm and he is left-handed) so I will just have to remodel the bathroom!

Yup -- when I was in radio, I learned to bring my own roll of "DJ Kleenex" for every shift. Don't know why DJs don't use actual Kleenex... maybe because they're mostly guys, and guys are doing well if they remember to buy TP, let alone tissues. But I got used to using TP for everything... and it's cheaper, so I stick with it!

OMG Natalie that would work

Toilet paper holders annoy the crap out of me! I agree, they are always placed really inconveniently. I think before any toilet paper holder is placed, the person placing it should sit down on the pot and make sure that they can easily reach wherever it is. I have to scrunch my arm in and sort of back and sideways to reach mine. Which means that it doesn't get used often... We just put a roll on the countertop, usually! I always put paper on the holder when we are having guests, but otherwise it is a pain in the behind!!!

Boy oh boy - do I know THAT feeling all too well!

It's gonna be a real hoot around here, when the kittens discover the absolute joy of unwinding TP from the holder in the near future! I'll probably be better off leaving it off, when that occurs..

The way I see it, if it takes even as little as 20 seconds a week to put paper on the holder, I'm saving over 17 minutes per year by not doing it! I've got all kinds of things I'd rather do with that time!
That's funny, Carol!

I've thought of doing something like that, but knowing MY luck, I'd have one of my "emergencies", and I'D be the one left w/o any TP!

For the record, the TP holder is right next to the toilet within easy reach, and not at an odd angle - so it's not as if putting a new roll on is a difficult thing to do. And my s/o knows it annoys me, but I think he does it anyway, just to get a rise out of me. But I don't let him know anymore that it annoys me, b/c that's what he wants!

Thanks for the laughs, peeps! Y'all are a hoot!
