The Cost of Laziness

We are out of toilet paper which is virtually inconceivable to me because I am a compulsive toilet paper purchaser. Whenever we go to costco I buy toilet paper. Sometimes we have been known to have multiple multi packs of t.p. in the house. When I opened the cupboard and saw one roll left I was certain I had another 48 stashed somewhere. My spouse informed me otherwise.

I knew I needed to buy some "holdover" t.p. until I get a chance to get to costco. I LOATHE buying it in the store because of how expensive it is. I even considered "borrowing" some from work, but we buy cheap enough t.p. at work that I would never seriously consider walking out with a roll and subjecting myself to the chafing at home.

I had to stop to get gas on the way to get the boy from daycare. After picking him up, getting him dressed and out to the van, I am reluctant to unpack him again at the grocery store just to pick up one thing so I decided to get a small pack of toilet paper at the gas station to save me from loading and unloading a 2.5 year old.

My laziness cost me $4.25. FOUR DOLLARS AND TWENTY FIVE CENTS. That's more than 1.07 PER roll. Though I choked as I paid for it I didn't think of putting it back and sucking it up by going into the grocery store, I just paid for it and when I got home I told my spouse she better appreciate every wipe with those four anorexic rolls of toilet paper cause she might as well be wiping her bum with pure gold.

We have an overstockage of toilet paper ... I could have given you plenty :)
