We have a simple rule about changing the toilet roll in our household - if you use the last sheet, you change the roll. No one leaves an empty roll on the holder for the next person.
So imagine what confronted me in the bathroom this morning after Junior had paid a visit.
Yes, in order to avoid the tedious chore of replacing a roll of toilet paper, he ensured that he left one sheet on the roll, thus avoiding the "empty roll" law.
That is not exactly abiding by the spirit of the law. I might present him with one sheet of paper tonight and invite him to wipe his bottom with it. That might get the point across. Unless he is a fan of Cheryl Crow.
It's not as if changing a roll is an onerous and time consuming task. We have a stick kind of thing on one side of the bogger, and it holds six full rolls. On the other side of the throne, we have the holder. Whilst sitting there, it is a no brainer to swap them out.
