HEY! Ever run out of toilet paper at home or in public? What did you do about it?

We've got a bidet, so we can always wash and or cleanse the areas in question, but as an added precaution, we have paper towels (on those roll holder things strategically placed) in every room for spills or whatnot (because as I've gotten older, I tend to knock over stuff and drool more, etc...), so whenever a paper towel is needed, they're only a reach away!

...and...

I always carry a couple paper towels folded up in my back pocket for such emergencies including but not limited to a wiping device when needed, so I'm never taken off guard because someone didn't refill or replace the TP at home or in public!

THEEK'S GOT IT COVERED!

In public wait till the bathroom clears and then pray to God that nobody comes in as your switching stalls.

you take all of these extra precautions and still occasionally leave skid marks?

I always keep a box of kleenex by the computer.

If that's what you mean...

First time I saw a bidet I was visiting relatives living in the Netherlands. After about three days, I casually made a remark about how handy it was to have a urinal in the bathroom...

After making some homemade chicken enchiladas--the DVD Polizei Butt-Burnin' kind, I went out and promptly bought a 24-pack of TP.

I think I need to neutralize the hot sauce a bit. My body just can't handle hot stuff like it used to.

The other day I was "using the facilities" at home, with a loose roll of toilet paper, and one of my cats grabbed the roll in her teeth and ran away with it. Luckily the cabinet with additional supplies was within reach.

In public, if there is NO toilet paper, then get some wipes from here.

If at home, you can get something to wipe with here:

In public places, it's always the first thing I check before picking the stall to use. So, I usually don't have a problem there.

When I was in college, I shared an apartment with two other guys. One day, while alone in the apartment and upon "finishing", I was frantic after finding out the last of the tp had been used up. We were on street level and it must of been an interesting site seeing me go from the bathroom, through the living room, and to the kitchen to get some paper towels. In hindsight, I should've used the annoying roomies shower towel......

Since that day, I have sworn to never have less than a drawer full of rolls in the house ever again.

There is always this:

and if needing a wipe is not your only problem, then you might go for this

Me too, but I can't help myself! I use it anyway and play the piper first & then pay him later...

(Food tastes bland and like cardboard or whatnot without it.)

GV: THAT DAMN CAT!

ukywyldcat: Not the TOWELS!!! & surely not THE DOG!!! (...although I've heard they'll eat ANYTHING...and LIKE IT!)



Chew:

D. Halo: EWWWWW!!! (Now I remember why I wasn't a Boy Scout. )

Groucho: It's great having that urinal in the bathroom.

The Edit King: You've been peeing in the drinking fountain?

Ist of all I aint never seen one of them drinking fountains in a bathroom before. Secondly have you never heard of a handkerchief before. You must be some kind a hillbilly or something.

So how does a bidet work?
you poo then without wiping move over to the bidet and then turn on the water so it washes away the poo stuck on your butt. Then what? how do you dry your butt? Does it get your nuts all wet as well?

I would need fire hose pressure and a mop to clean the floor.

handkerchief?

Handkerchief??

HANDKERCHIEF???

Call me names if you must, but sorry, LN...

I for one don't choose to carry my boogers & wipings with me ALL DAY in my pocket.

That's nothing less than REALLY DISGUSTING and TOTALLY UNSANITARY!!! (...not to mention unecessary...)

carrying your bodily waste in your pocket...ALL DAY!!!



(...well, to me & Brother Theodore, at least... )

I prefer paper towels or at best Keenex (or some sort of) tissue to a hankerchief anyday, because they can be thrown a way in a instant along with whatever contents they may contain.

!!!YEE-HAW & HEE-HAW!!!

HILLBILLY THEEK! Indeed!

Actually, it's all in one toilet. There's a soap & warm water rinse, then a warm air blow-dry!

(Sometimes I use a paper towel (not a hankerckief ) if needed to dab the drips. )
