  • Sounds like my SO. Revenge sweets. It's Take all of the toilet paper out of the bathroom when he pooes. Right before you know he'll take a shower, take all of the shampoo and soap out of the bathroom, then take his toothbrush and toothpaste and hide it somewhere good...hehehe

  • I would be irritated. But I would try to be nice to hubby.

  • Ask him how he would have felt if you had neglected such a thing if he were the one doing the prep. Or to bring the problem home to him, pick something that he cares about.... say a game was on TV and he had asked you to take care of the cable bill but you forgot, and he had invited his friends over and they couldn't watch the game. Ask him how he would feel then. He should realize that he would be very put out with you since he would have relied on you to do something. (the cable bill idea is just an illustration, it would not be appropriate to actually do such a thing.)

  • He forgot the TP?

    Use his shirt as an alternative.


    Obviously, there are bigger issues here - sounds pretty passive aggressive on his part (IMHO).

    Does he make it a habit to "forget" things that are important to you?

  • I made the shirt comment - sorry to post Anon but I didn't know how you would take it.

    I'm sorry for a shitty (literal!) situation.

    If you are being very clear about your needs with your husband, and he's still ignoring you, that's a bigger problem than forgetting TP.

    But you already know that.

    Everything aside - I hope your procedure went swimmingly!!!

  • do you guys really think that if a man forgets to do the things you think are important that he doesn't really care about you? Its not always the case. but I agree that, its pretty screwed up that he didn't get the TP. IMO he either did really forget or he remembered but was to lazy to go get it. In that case that just makes your husband a selfish, lazy jerk!.
