Another One Of Life's Mysteries...


Living in our home, there are only three of us...two adults and one child.

So why is it that we go through so much toilet paper..???


The following descriptions of toilet paper use in our home, are factual and explanatory.....


User # 1 - Uses 5 or 6 sheets at a time. Pulls the 5 or 6 connected sheets off the roll...folds once...folds twice...wipes...repeats 2 to 3 times.


User # 2 - Grasps the sheet at the end of the roll...wraps continuous sheets around hand 4 or 5 times...breaks off hand-wound sheets...wipes...repeats 3 to 5 times.


User # 3 - Grasps the sheet at the end of the roll...pulls connected sheets as far from the roll as arm length allows...repeats 2 to 3 times...wads up the entire length pulled off the roll (approximately 6 to 8 feet, total length)...wipes...repeats 5 or 6 times..!!!


Yes...the toilet drain gets clogged up on a regular basis, too..!

Yes, but the real question: Do you use a toilet paper holder, or just grab the roll from the shelf?

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

We do have a toilet paper holder, but being an old house, the Art-Deco ceramic tile depression is restrictive for today's thicker, fuller rolls (does that mean there were smaller rolls 60 years ago?).

Newly opened rolls reside on the toilet least until ONE use by either of the two people in this house who use a LOT of toilet paper each time..!!!

We even have a little basket on the floor that holds three extra rolls (comes in handy after a BIG meal..!).

Hmmmmmmmmmm....gets me to wondering what you and Mrs. Prag were really doing when you went to drain the main thing, and she "showed you" the way..!

Thank goodness for plungers. Otherwise we would be spending our paychecks on plumbers.

Yes...this way we can spend our paychecks on toilet paper..!!!!

Brings back so many memories when my kids used to live in my house. That's why I was thankful we had a Sam's Club in my town where I can buy it in bulk......LOL.

A 32 roll bulk pack from CostCo will last about a month, here..!

It's the same in our house too, except there is 4 of us. The kids have their own bathroom, they seem to go thru much more than we do.

pragmaticCTcpl replies on 8/3/2006 1:07 pm: gave me an idea as to what to do with all of the old newspapers that keep piling up here...........

At least I hope you stand at the a toll-booth taker, instead of having one of those stupid dollar-bill-insert-to-pay thingies..!

DAMN..!!!! I hate the way those things spit the dollar back at you if there's so much as one little wrinkle..!

Wouldn't need toilet paper with that exercise...only paper towels to clean the floor..!
