Life's Big Unanswerable Question

The biggest question out there is this:

why am I the only person in the house who knows how to change the toilet paper roll?

and it's corollary:

why does everyone else in the house know how to leave exactly enough on the roll so it looks as tho they are NOT leaving it empty?

If anyone can answer that, please let me know.

I believe the better question is: Why are you the only person who CARES if the toilet paper roll is being changed?
Because, let's face it. If they can wait you out, they don't ever have to do it. And, speaking from, ahem, experience, it's usually the woman who finds herself in dire need before the menfolk.
Though Matt's pretty good about it generally, I should add.

but when they do need it, they don't change it do they? They get out a new roll and set it somewhere like on the back of the toilet. It's learned helplessness.

I think it's special that the rest of your family knows that certain something that completes your day. They are obviously leaving it for you to do because your heart wells up with such a warm sense of having accomplished something altruistic for the rest of the family. It makes you complete. It makes you glow inside. It makes you the Sonja that they all adore.

Watch it ... I'll have to take special aim at both of you. You'll never know where. You'll never know when.
