Yes It Just Goes On And On My Friends

I started thinking about mine and Dallan’s relationship yesterday and I came to the conclusion that, at this point in our marriage, if Dallan and I were to divorce it would be over one thing.  This is the fight that never ends, yes it just goes on and on my friends.

Do you have any guesses as to what this fight could be about?  Yes?  No?  Maybe so?  Bueller?  Bueller?

I’ll give you a little pop quiz.

[polldaddy poll=4768564]

And, the result are…. drum drill please… None of the above.

That’s right my friends, you heard correctly. None of the above.  Some of the above options may be major issues in our marriage but they are nothing compared to this problem.  No.  This issue is a War of Drastic Proportions, The Big Kahuna, The Great Bambino, The Great Debate…  Running out of creative ways to describe this predicament.  Any suggestions?

Let me give you the “DL” on our bathroom tissue aggravation (and no, this has nothing to do with how many plys are in the toilet paper we purchase).

You see, Dallan and I are constantly butting heads over who refilled the toilet paper roll last.  He claims that I ALWAYS leave empty rolls of TP in the toilet paper holder and he is ALWAYS replacing them.

What he doesn’t realize is that 7 or 8 out of 10 times I AM restocking the toilet tissue.  Look at the facts:

  • I work at home and sometimes don’t leave the house for days at a time.
  • In the 4+ years that we’ve been married, he’s maybe cleaned the bathroom 4 times.
  • When I leave 4 squares of toilet paper on a roll, it doesn’t qualify the roll as empty.  You can wipe with 2 or 3 squares.
  • Just because Dallan didn’t physically see me refill the TP holder, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. You can’t see air, yet you know it’s there.

In order to resolve our unresolvable dispute, I’ve brought up the idea of keeping a “tally” of our refills.  He scoffed at my idea and said, “if we did that then you would actually refill the thing and I would loose”.

I’m at my wits’ end. Who do you side with?

    Rebecca - Too funny! You know it (using the bathroom) is a big event for the guys and a man must have all of his supplies in order prior to the big event: reading material, cell phone and tp. Raj told our daughter – who is currently potty training – the other day that it is the best thing in life. I like to think that this doesn’t give any indication of the general level of fun in our lives but I think there was some level of truth to that statement for him…
