We're not the only ones

My anal-retentive husband has to fold his toilet paper and he is frugal even in the use of it.

Me, on the other hand *this entry is full of bad puns, sorry* I just to use the pull and wad in a semi-orderly fashion for what I use to clean my hiney with.

We have actually gotten into arguments over my toilet paper use. Seriously. It is my coup de gras to pull out in a pinch *see what I mean about the puns?* when I'm bitching about how he likes things done a certain way. I like to think of him as OCD-light.

Apparently, we're not the only ones to argue over TP *for my bunghole as Cornholio would say*.

My loving husband sent me the story of the murder committed over toilet paper. He included this explanation: "See I only fuss at you, it is worse for some people."

    I found this while looking for a Cornholio image and it cracked me up.

    Oh the simple days before you had a blog where this information wasn't public knowledge.

    Dude, let your old lady use whatever paper she likes. It's not that friggin expensive.

    You'd have a coronary if you watched me clean the kitchen. All paper towels, dozens of them. That way I don't wind up mopping everything down with a wet bacteria-laden cloth. (yes, that's where MY OCD-lite comes in)

    And yes, you're doomed. When you get old and your prostate swells up -- the whole world is going to know.

    It isn't what, it is how much!

    Oh and I exercise my prostate regularly and that is supposed to keep problems at bay.

    AoM, AoD:

    As with most fiftyish couples, my loving wife and I have found one hell of a lot of things to argue about during the course of 22 years of marriage.

    This, kids, ain't one of them.

    Through four presidents, three booms, two recessions, two wars, and raising two boys who are now taller than both of us -- I have never, ever inquired as to my wife's toilet-paper technique, nor have I been the slightest bit curious.

    (She has inquired as to MINE, only so far as to grumble how much I use when the damn thing overflows. And at these points, I'm the one who plunges and mops up anyway, so have found any further argument pointless.)

    But tell me -- what is "OCD?"

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

    We pick at each other a lot. Helps us avoid real fights and neither of us gets our feeling hurt badly by the small things.

    Yeah, it really isn't that big of a deal. I just think it is funny that this is one of the things he fusses at me about.

    and, yes, Gadfly - using all those paper towels would make both me and AoD nuts. ;)

    Thank Gawd you don't buy the black toilet paper that is out there. Then it would be a waste!

    AofD- You got that right, the things we say with blogs.... bwahaha!
