  1. Twice yesterday at work – once in each of the cubicles that service our floor – I had to change an empty toilet paper roll. What is with the office world?? No one returns phone calls (my research of the last fortnight or so has proved this beyond doubt) and no bugger changes a toilet roll. Do they think the loo is there just for them, and they’ll get to changing it next time they go in??

    I feel your pain. I think there’s a major inernational ad campaign in this.

    It really says a lot about an organisation when people won’t change the loo roll for the next person.
