My wife does.  I put on a new roll Saturday evening before work.  Come home from work the next morning, there is already a new roll on there.

I buy it in 45 roll boxes at Sam's Club.  That box might last 30 days.  Even less if she is sick and blowing her nose a lot.

She just likes to keep her pooty-poo all clean for you!

I think the air gets used less.

Give it up.  You can't win that argument.

Gotta be clean- but save the trees and use a couple baby wipes
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 5:37:33 PM EDT
Try buying those wet wipe things that come in the dispenser box.  Kinda like baby wipes, except for adults.  It might actually be more economical, as she'll only use one per trip to the washroom, instead of 3-4 yards of TP.

Worth a shot, anyway.

edit: beaten to the punch...
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 5:38:04 PM EDT

yes, and how.  

But since TP is less than ammo, I keep my mouth shut.
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 5:38:17 PM EDT
My wife does too.  Before you object too much though, ask yourself:  Would you rather have her using too much TP, or too little?

My girlfriend is personally responsible for the destruction of 556,789 acres of rainforest for TP.  

That doesn't bother me.  What really pisses me off is the fact that every time I cop a squat, there are about six inches of paper left.

I have a hairy buttcrack, so I use ALOT of toilet paper.
Maybe she has the same problem?
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 5:45:54 PM EDT
tell her to buy mega rolls

Link Posted: 1/2/2007 5:47:53 PM EDT
Those big rolls don't last any longer.

She goes through the baby wipes the same way.

She receives thank you calls from Charmin for keeping them employed.

And shows no mercy to paper towels either.

Years ago when I was married with two daughters in the house a roll of TP would last about 6 hours on average,

She goes through the baby wipes the same way.

bigger rolls last much longer here--i can go through a "regular" roll in a day, if im home all day--the megas last 2-3 or longer

i dont use the wipes--they clog my toilet--then im in another world of shit

Yep, she can't get by with just one paper towel.  Has to tear off 2-3 just to wipe up something.

I'm bad to use paper towels as nose paper, but since Sam's big box of paper towels has gone up to $23/30 rolls, I've started using either TP or hankerchiefs.
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:07:00 PM EDT
She is the TP Queen, I am the PT King.

 If we get down to one roll of paper towel I'm freak'in out.

Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:07:11 PM EDT
Maybe your brand is too soft?  Get some of that gas-station rough stuff and see how things change?

BTW a roll of Scott's lasts me a couple of weeks or more.  I have no wife---this is one of many reasons.

Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:24:50 PM EDT
Women seem to use more.

I don't ask why.

Here's a tidbit for you. My MIL must have twenty rolls of paper in the bathroom at all times. If it falls below twenty, we have to bring another twenty four pack to her. She has eight rolls within reach, and stuffs a dozen rolls under the sink. the overflow goes in the closet. If the closet has no overflow, she starts freaking out and demanding MORE.

There was a time in her German youth when there was no toilet paper, or food, or bathrooms, or privacy. She has developed a keen desire to never run out of toilet paper.

That said, SHE uses a LOT of TP. Again, I don't ask why.

My God can I relate to this one!  At least your little woman has probably turned off at least ONE light in her life!
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:44:53 PM EDT
Try rolls of Bounty.  They last longer from what I hear.
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:45:45 PM EDT
... Did I mention that I'm putting a urinal in my workshop in the mountains?

... Is that cool or what?
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:46:14 PM EDT
Women do things with TP that no man could imagine.  It's feminine duct tape.
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:46:16 PM EDT
You need to get a better hobby than measuring your wife's toilet habits.
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:49:53 PM EDT
girls wipe after they pee.  and they pee as often as we do.

that being said, my wife uses 3 rolls of tp to my 1.  (thank goodness we have separate bathrooms.)  
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:51:35 PM EDT
I think it's probably closer to 10:1 in my household.
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:52:39 PM EDT
My wife pisses 4x as much as I do.

She can drink a bottle of water and make 4 trips.  I'll drink 4 bottles of water and only make 2 trips.

This is a woman who purposely dehydrates herself when we go on trips so we won't have to stop every hour.
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:55:04 PM EDT
Not any more.
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:56:45 PM EDT
I have two teenage daughters, one almost, and the wife.

The wife doesn't buy cheap TP... I don't buy cheap guns or accessories.

Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:57:43 PM EDT
Send her to India for a year. Be sure to tell her not to eat with the left hand...
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 6:58:27 PM EDT
not to Hijack,leave the Toilet Seat up and listen to a Screaming' I'm Gonna Cut Your Balls Off Maniac'

She wants TP you bet ya'.Ya' can have all the Azz/Bunny tissue you want

My wife goes thru a roll 3 times a week
in her bathroom.....

Link Posted: 1/2/2007 7:05:51 PM EDT
Most of the chicks I know wipe after peeing and after shitting so I'm not surprised.
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 7:10:58 PM EDT
Good lord yes.

Sometimes I wonder if she doesn't straddle the roll and just unroll the thing as she wipes!!!
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 7:11:20 PM EDT
You got to understand, tp is not just for number 1 and number 2.

I've gone to ask the the doctor on how to most effectively make my gf's boobs enormous.  He said to get her to rub tp between her breasts every morning.  I was shocked and asked "You sure this is going to work?".  To this he replied "I am pretty sure since it is doing wonders for my wife's ass".
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 7:11:37 PM EDT
My fucking roommate would tear through that stuff.  I could go into the bathroom to take a shit and there'd be 3 empty rolls of tp on the floor and 1 still on the rack...

Finally I was like, YOU WIN, I'll throw it away.  He responded that it as like that in his last room too...apparently he thinks that I also use the TP and don't throw the rolls away or something...I hadn't touched the damned toilet paper and he had gone through 4 rolls of it?!

At least he wipes I guess...He has since left Korea (yay for me).  I only had to room with him for a month.  1 roll of TP will probably last me 2 weeks on average.  He went through at least 1 per day somedays 2.  He must shit all over himself.  If it gets so bad that you have to use 2 rolls of TP in a day, it's time to hose yourself off outside.

You need to get a better hobby than measuring your wife's toilet habits.

Or at least do it scientifically.  Get some sheets per hour, rolls per day, cases per week written up and make a pie chart or one of them other graph chart things.  If you wanted to break it down further, check uses after different types of drinks and meals.
Link Posted: 1/2/2007 7:22:55 PM EDT
they create a TP oven mitt, give it a little pat, and toss it.

My wife goes thru as much TP as me and our three sons combined.

When our baby girl starts to do her business on her own, I fully anticipate two rolls per day.

No wife so I can't comment there, but I can say that when I was growing up my mother used around 3/4 of a roll of tp when she removed her makeup every night.  You guys with wives been seeing how much they use when they 'take their face off'?

I would rather have a woman that uses too much of it than too little.

+1. Better for a woman to be aware of personal hygiene than not. Or a man, for that matter.
