    Default We ran out of toilet paper for 3 days!

    I can honestly say that we had never run out of toilet paper ever, but somehow we managed to run out of toilet paper on Christmas morning, and it was this afternoon before we managed to buy some more... Thank goodness we'd bought tissues!

    My now DH used to come to my house as a teenager and my mum had packs and packs of toilet paper she had bought on special along with toothpaste. He still teases me that my family eats toothpaste.

    Oh, we honestly have 5 unopened tubes of toothpaste, and normally have dozens of rolls of TP... I don't know how we ran out!

    Had a boss once refuse to buy toilet paper and made the staff use paper towel, after 2 months he regretted this "cost cutting" measure.
