AGAIN with the empty toilet paper roll!


I know that my husband means no ill will toward me.  AND I know that it’s not laziness: he is one of the most industrious people I know.  So why is it, that when I reach to the toilet paper dispenser and find it empty my default impulse is “OFF WITH HIS HEAD”?
