Why Is This So Hard for Guys?

by Abby on March 7, 2014

This is the scene that greeted me the other day when I walked into my bathroom:

why can't guys replace the roll of toilet paper?

Baffling, isn’t it? Does it really take SO MUCH more time to actually put the T.P. on the roller thingie? They’d rather go get ANOTHER roll and set it on the counter instead of just replacing the used-up one and tossing the empty roll in the recycling?

If I manage to teach my sons to replace the toilet paper roll, I will consider it my greatest accomplishment as a mother and my gift to womankind. I’ll keep you posted.

Omg.. I thought it is just my husband. Glad to know it is a male species thing.

As the male voice commenting on this post, I will have you know…we all do this. I just did it the other day (I like to put the new roll on top of the empty cardboard tube still in the holder). I do it just to see what my wife will say.
Its been encoded in to our DNA after years of evolution which means, try as you might, your boys will do the same thing to their spouses. You can’t unlearn the evolutionary process I’m afraid. Well its either evolution or we’re just lazy? But I’m pretty sure its genetic.

The male species sees a single roll of tp on the roll as being more than enough to justify not changing it. Being the wonderful conservationists that we are, do not want to further burden our planet with waste. Kinda like leaving an inch and a half on the roll of floss so the Lovely Miss TK can enjoy getting the last bit and thus saving her own portion of the planet.
