Am I the only one?

How 'bout a little comic relief, shall we?

Often when visiting public restrooms, I come across an empty roll of toilet paper.

Last night, the above happened.

For some reason, I hesitated.

Do you know why?

Because I was slightly irritated that the last person in there who "used the last bit of toilet paper" didn't change it.

Isn't that irritating?

I mean there were five extra rolls in the stall right there in front of them to do it!

Then I began to think.

Am I the only one nice enough to help the manager out and change it myself?

Please people, tell me you are not too lazy to do this too.

For some reason, I began to think of people I know and considered who probably changes it and who doesn't.

I am aware that this is an odd thought, but it's the same people who don't change the roll in the public restroom -who don't do it when they visit my house!

I know, I know I am anal.

I know this.

Funny thing is I don't even care if the roll is over or under, I just want you to change it if you are the last one.

I realize that there is not a "Toilet Paper Sheriff" in town, unless I decide to monitor the bathroom use at my house, but still come on it's common courtesy.

Unless you are under the age of 16, you should be deemed capable of changing the roll of TP.

Just my opinion.

Ok, back to the public restroom thing.

Of course I do not do this at RestStops on I-95 or any other place where you have to have a lock and key to get into to those things, but last night was a nice seafood restaurant in Charleston, in which I felt I was capable of changing the roll myself.

So I challenge you to take part in my TP Initiative and change the roll whenever you can or see fit.

The "Interim" TP Sheriff,

  1. It drives me CRAZY when the roll isn't put on the holder! I have to admit I now understand my mom's frustration when we didn't do it as kids. It takes ONE second...just one second!

    Thanks for the smile! I love it!
