Oh V... I need to enroll my DH just for the toilet paper roll and real men ask for directions :) Did you ever see the "Mad about you" episode where she comes out of the bathroom into the living room where her DH is sitting and obviously very irritated, she goes over to him, shows him the empty toilet paper spindle and then demonstrates how to put a fesh roll on? LOL! What IS it about changing the roll that men have such a hard time with? I just don't get it. I get SO annoyed when I go into the bathroom and see the cardboard roll with about 4 squares hanging from it still on the holder and a NEW roll parked on top of the toilet tank!! ARGH! I guess if these are the worst of my DH's inperfections then I'm doing pretty good though huh? Lot's to be thankful for and I'm sure, now that I think of it, that I've got some pretty annoying habits to my DH.

There... I feel better now :) Thanks for the laugh and the vent!

Yea! The worst part is they got the new roll out, they just can't seem to change it!!!!! At least my DH does pick up dishes.... But the laundry basket v.s. the floor is one he needs!!!!! He will actually take his clothes off in the bathroom, then throw them on the floor NEXT to the laundry basket........???!!!!

LOL!!! Those are hysterical!!! I lived with a guy for a couple of years and when I finally left, he told me tat one of the first things he noticed after I left was that the ice cube trays no longer magically refilled themselves and went back into the freezer. Oy, well, at least he finally got it.

My question is, how do I prevent my 4 sons from growing into this kind of man? I'm afraid that the toilet-paper-deficiency is congenital (passed down from Dad's side of the family). They also lack the throw-empty-containers-away gene (as in, "Mom, why didn't you get more cereal?"; answer: "How was I supposed to know that the box you left on the counter--in the same place you leave it every day--was empty today??")

That course list is woefully incomplete! There needs to be at least two more classes:

PUTTING DOWN THE TOILET SEAT
Ways to improve your relationship!

AIMING 101
Cheerios float and make wonderful targets
