The Toilet Paper Saga
At work (a cab-office, call centre essenchaly), they are always running out of bog roll. Often I would go there and they'ld be none, which is no good for me as I have chrones and as such can hold it in for a minuite or two max.

Three weeks in a row, I had to get a friend from home (I live around the corner) to come up with a packet. Not being out-of-order, I always leave whatever I bring there. I eventually worked out that his comes up to an hour's wages, so I put on a 'docket'* with the recipt, where I get a note saying "Who asked you to buy toilet paper? I did not say you can buy toilet paper". I thought this was a bit tight and out of order, so I came up with The Toilet Paper Fund...

I came back the following weekend, and there was a hand full of 2ps and 1ps. Apparently, the staff have been using my toilet paper fund to buy coffee and chocolate out of the vending machine, so I wrote another letter....

People still don't take my plight seriously, but at least everyone had a good laugh. I've taken to taking toilet paper home with me when it's there, they owe me 8 more rolls and then we're quits. I also now have a hidden spot in the office where I keep my toilet paper.

* A little bit of paper for when the cabs do an 'account' job, rather than cash, so they get paid

Ewww. Crohn's.
There's a history of that in my family. I'm hoping that it's one of the genes I've not inherited.

You so didn't write that second note.
The spelling is of a high standard.

I spellchecked it.

If he made spelling mistakes,
People wouldn't be so harsh, as that's obviously not the greatest of his problems.

I bought a sewing machine recently
the only reason I bought the one I did out of all the available models is 'cos the name was written on it Comic Sans.

"I want to do a Poo at Paul's!"
