Who's job is it to replace the empty TP roll?

I share the main bath in the house with my two nephews 18 & 26. In three months there has not been a roll of TP replaced by any one but me. i dont understand what is so hard about sliding the roll on the little hook thing. They have a floor stand holder so there isn't even the spring thing to deal with.

  • Next time this happens, leave it empty. Hide a roll for yourself and see how long it takes for them to replace it.

  • It's the person who uses the last square.
    Next time leave it with no TP.... carry your own roll in and out... that will burn them at some point!! LOL

  • My rule is whoever uses it up. But when my kids start ignoring that alot, I don't replace it even when I finish it, and (like others have suggested) take my own in and out and see how long it takes them to realize they need to change it. lol

  • It's normally whoever finishes the old roll, but it's normally only me who remembers, and it's only myself who'll actually dispose of the old cardboard roll. I tried leaving it to see how long it would take before DH threw away the old roll, but I gave in after a week.

  • The person who used the last of the TP on that role. I would wait to see how long it took them to change it. I would keep using TP and putting it back where you keep it. We keep it under the cabinet in the bathroom.

  • Those young men are old enough to know better. I like the idea of taking in your own roll. The only problem w/ that is if you're in a hurry & forget- then you're stuck! lol ;p

  • I was going to say it's whoever used it last but apparently this may not work. I agree with all the ladies and have your own hidden somewhere.

  • yeah its supposed to be whoever finishes it, but since i have little ones if i dont replace it, DD wont use it :S. and DH isnt here often enough to get caught on empty.

    i agree with the others, take in your own roll and let them deal. they have to poop eventually!!
