The secret to a happy marriage is passive aggressive notes left in the bathroom. You’re welcome.

Awhile ago I posted this on Facebook because somebody in my house had committed the Unforgivable Sin.


I let it go for awhile but just the other day somebody else comitted the Unforgivable Sin and I had to remind those that life within my home that this sin is NOT ACCEPTABLE and is punishable by sudden death. Or really painful wedgies. Or really loud yelling. Or SUDDEN DEATH.

To which I was greeted last night by this:


That was his “elegant solution”. My elegant solution was brain matter all over the living room walls when my GODDAMN HEAD BLEW UP FROM FURY.

He looked at me like there wasn’t even a big glob of my brain about to drip off his face and was all..

Ben: What? You are so crazy about the “right way” and I don’t want to have to guess the right way so PROBLEM SOLVED.
Ben: Now there is no “wrong” way because there ISN’T a way.
Ben: *shrug*

So today I solved this little issue:

Problem: SOLVED.

  1. Passive Aggression is how I will get through my marriage.

    James’s nasty habit: Leaving shit open when it was JUST CLOSED GODDAMN IS IT HARD TO CLOSE A DRAWER?!

  2. I used to be a complete TP Nazi, but Gizmo had to be a pain and kept unrolling the rolls. I would walk in to find him standing on his hind legs just flailing his front paws with half the roll at his feet. Flipped it around and he stopped! It killed my soul a little though, I’ll admit it.

  3. I’ll be honest: the toilet paper thing doesn’t bother me, because I’m halfway to being a crazy cat lady, so half the time the rolls are hung under instead of over in order to take away from the cats’ run. But you know what makes me twitch? Dan dries his hands on the hand towel *AND* the bath towel… and leaves both hanging haphazardly/all crooked. *ZOMGTWITCH*

  4. I can’t stand when the toilet paper is hung under instead of over. I *always* fix it… and my best friend’s mom is the most likely person in our house to actually put it up wrong.

  5. Andrew and I tend to use the whiteboard next to our calendar to vent our passive aggression. I dread the day the kids are able to read the horrific profanity that is usually written on that board.

  6. I agree, there is a right way to do it, but you aren’t doing it the right way.

    It’s supposed to go under because putting it over is ugly. Seriously.

    You’re obviously a heathen for liking it this way. (OK… I’m joking about the heathen part.. but not that you’re doing it wrong. Because you are.)

    My husband leaves cheese wrappers all over everything. It has gotten to the point where my aggression on this issue is no longer passive.

  7. I don’t have a preference in how the toilet paper is put on the holder. I actually do Ben’s method ;p We go through TP so much that it’s just a waste of time to put it on the roller, take it off, put a new one on, and then repeat.

    But it was funny to read though 🙂

  8. BAHAHAHAHAHAHA this is pretty epic! This tissue issue doesn’t really bother me right now because we have a stand where there is no wall/cupboard behind it so there’s no possible messes. Usually I like it going over the top. These pictures however, so awesome.

  9. LOL this is a ridiculously hilarious post – kudos to you. Thanks for the tip, by the way. I will keep that in mind for the future hahaha. I hate the “wrong” way. I always end up fumbling around for a bit until I can finally find the end of the roll.
