Today's Social Dilemma struck me as something that we ALL go through with our spouses, our kids or whoever you happen to live with. Check out the email I got from Ella.
Hi Jaime. You might think this is a funny social dilemma, but it has caused more arguments in my house than I care to thing about. It has to do with toilet paper. And no, it's not about which way to put the toilet paper on the holder. This is a bigger deal than that. My husband and my son have a horrible habit of finishing up the toilet paper and NOT putting a new roll on the holder. That means whoever comes in next (usually me) gets left with no toilet paper. And of course it's usually after I've done what I came in there to do. So that means trying to get to the cabinet under the sink and grabbing the next roll. I have screamed at my husband and son, but they both think that it's not the persons job who finished it, since they had enough for what they needed. It's up to the next person to put the new roll on. I think that's crazy and rude. They say I'm taking it all too seriously. Please help me make them understand that it's up to them to change out the empty for a new roll. They promise they'll listen to whatever you and your callers say. So in your house, who changes the toilet paper roll??? The person that uses the last of it, or the next person to come in. Thank you so much Jaime. Love listening to TRY everyday. - Ella
Well, for me, I agree with Ella. Whoever uses the last of it, has to put the new roll on. That's just kindness and courtesy. But let's see what you think. Let's help Ella out!
