Woeful Wednesday!

When you get all comfy
Sat down on the loo
And realise that the loo roll’s gone
Blimey! What to do!

Or, soaking in the shower
You reach for your favourite gel
Squeeze, but nothing comes out…
They’ve finished that as well!

Reaching in the caddy
To make a cup of tea
But, alas, no teabags

Empty boxes of chocolates
Pringle tubes with just one left
All these empties in my house
I really feel bereft!

Is it honestly so hard
To refill all these things?
Or at least tell me to replenish
When I go shopping?

I am not a mind reader
And I’m not the only one
Who has the capability
To put the bog roll back on

Drinks, lightbulbs, petrol
And so much other stuff
When left spent, or empty
It leaves me in a huff!

I’m sorry for the whining
Please say I’m not alone
It just really get my wick
I need to have a moan!

    I heard a young married man one time say that he had not been aware that houses came without toothpaste and toilet paper. I think his eyes were opened when mother was not his keeper!

    You failed to delegate the responsibilities properly☺. Management 101!

    So funny, Ritu. I totally feel for you as it is exactly the same in my house. I have also written a poem about the same thing this week – so coincidental.

    You capture that frustration so well! You’re not alone or maybe you are. At least in the ability to write a genius poem about something many recognize but can’t make a good poem about πŸ˜‰

    They have a really neat trick at my house. Too lazy to throw the box out, they put the empty back in place…and I think my chocolate or cookies or ice cream are still there. Major dissapoinment 😦

      Only one allowed per household it seems! Unless you’re a student then that part of the brain hasn’t developed and there are no forward thinkers in any student house Lol!!
