I've got a solution by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri Oct 31, 2008 at 08:43:52 AM EST
Pretend it's WWII again and ration the TP.. It's like you're combining a life lesson and a history lesson all in one.. Or replace the TP with the sears catalog, (since my 70 yr old father-in-law remembers the sears catalog for that purpose.. )


I don't know if I want to sacrifice my comfort tha by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Fri Oct 31, 2008 at 08:55:46 AM EST
t much just to avoid an occasional plunge job.

why not force her to use family wipes?

That would be a very hard sell by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Oct 31, 2008 at 09:36:32 AM EST
especially since I don't do laundry.

she's 12 by StackyMcRacky (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Oct 31, 2008 at 09:49:47 AM EST
she can do her OWN damn laundry!  Hell, my parents made me start doing laundry when I was 9.

Anyway, the choice can be hers - either use less TP, or move to cloth wipes.  OR teach her to fix the toilet - she breaks it, she fixes it.

She's a difficult twelve by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri Oct 31, 2008 at 09:56:03 AM EST
almost Aspie like in her personality. We have to pick our battles with her selectively, and homework is the biggest one now.

is there a 12 that isn't difficult? by StackyMcRacky (2.00 / 0) #9 Fri Oct 31, 2008 at 10:03:53 AM EST
we've already made plans to ship The Dude off to my cousin's wife's family farm when he turns 11.  He can come home when he's 18!

She's always been difficult by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #10 Fri Oct 31, 2008 at 10:07:28 AM EST
scary smart and headstrong, so she's able to figure out manipulation, and not easy to strong arm into things.

But think of the other lessons by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #4 Fri Oct 31, 2008 at 09:35:41 AM EST
hardship and perseverance getting that last wipe, and maybe some economics, when you start a black market for toilet paper.. And it'll help her when she goes to college/joins the corporate world, where they have that awful sandpaper TP -- she'll love it, compared to the sears catalog..

We already use the cheap Scott stuff by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri Oct 31, 2008 at 09:37:38 AM EST
I'm banking the change for a dowry. Someday, the pinicky eating toilet clogging kid will no longer be my problem.

in our downstairs bathroom, no room for a bidet.

Check with your importer by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #14 Sat Nov 01, 2008 at 07:03:37 AM EST
The Japanese can fit a toilet that has a bidet with customizable temperature control using ass biometrics to determine the user, automatic butt baby-powdering attachment, automatic descending helmet with piped in shitting mood music, temperature controlled seat, ethernet port and 32" television, all in a four square foot area.

"happening maybe once a month" by ammoniacal (2.00 / 0) #15 Sat Nov 01, 2008 at 03:44:42 PM EST
Sounds like Mom ought to discuss, uh . . . certain logistical matters with her.

I asked her to make sure by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #16 Sat Nov 01, 2008 at 03:48:54 PM EST
just because the box says flushable doesn't make it so.

But's been happening for years, long before this summer's event.
