Yes it's time for an "In service"


I think the biggest mistake I've ever made was to do too much for my family, my husband and sons, not necessarily my sisters and such. As you see I've been conducting an "in house experiment". This empty toilet paper roll has been on the wall for one full week. It's our main bathroom, there are three of us. I hid a full roll in a little cupboard just across from the toilet. My men have not found it, nor have they had the knowledge to replace this empty roll. They have gotten up in the middle of the night to use the facility, realize there was no paper on the roll, and walked downstairs to the powder room. So last night the roll ran out in there. It was two in the a.m. when my husband realized this. You can imagine the fuss. I just laid there and snickered. So today we had an "in-service" on how to replace the roll,and directions as to where full rolls might be located. Of course my husband wants that whole wack of 24 rolls just sitting there next to the potty, not happening dude. My next experiment might be emptying the drawers of underwear, and having a laundry basket full with clean ones, just to see if they can find them. I've often thought I should sew my husbands pants to make them tighter so he would lose some weight, but I'm too busy for that right now, so maybe later. It's all very scientific you know.



I had to add a post script to this post. As I walked away from my computer to put another load of wash in, I also took out a load of dry stuff. In the dryer screen I found this "washed" bus ticket, I have now washed a GAME BOY, a monthly bus pass, at the beginning of the month, and now this. I guess I know what my new "in service" will be, perhaps I'll just start laying out a schedule of how to live without your mother/wife doing everything for you. I'll be ironing this ticket, because he WILL BE using it.

I did the laundry thing once, all they did was go through it looking for their stuff, and mumbling the whole time, my husband will put a brand roll of paper on the EMPTY on!!!!!!! and the 2 teenagers will leave the empty roll on the holder, and put the brand new one on the back of the totty!!!! Please, keep us all posted on your experiment.This made me giggle....
Hugs~

This cracks me up. What is it with guys and toilet paper? My husband will get the new roll out but leave it on the corner of the sink(?!?).

I think you should have the inservice at my house. My husband ensures that there are enough rolls in the toilet paper rack. When I am busy, he helps me fold the laundry and puts it away. The "scientific" theory is "you need to "allow" them from day one" (yes, first day after the honeymoon). Thank you honey Mitch, I couldn't do the things I do, without you. Alice.
