Default OT: Looking for a specific support group

Anybody know of a support group for Husbands-of Wives-That-Continually-Clog-the-Drainpipes?

Ideally they would have an auxiliary group for Husbands-Of-Wives-That-Use-Too-Much-Toilet-Paper.

Asking for a friend.

Don't be ridiculous, ask any woman to explain how this works, she will assure you that any drain in the house is a magic portal to a wormhole in outer space, and once a thing goes down a drain it will never, ever be seen again, it is no longer any cause for concern.

I did a poor job of explaining "my friend's" plight. It was actually a garbage disposal clog last night.

TP problems are another issue at the same household.

Make her pay the plumber bill a few times out of her own pocket.

With the disposal just tell her if it can't go in your mouth it can't go in there.

A line with more than one use in marriage.

Oh man, LMAO. You guys are killing me this mornin, and I truly needed it. As far as the garbage disposal goes, take the ice bucket from your refrig, once a month or buy a bag of ice and grind it through the disposal and it won't clog up on you again. (It's kinda of nasty the first couple of times.) And I feel your pain on the bathroom drains. Liquid Plumber and draino are a waste of good money. What does work is a product called Zep 10 minute Hair Clog Remover and you can get it at Home Desperate. You won't need to use any more than the recommended amount although I had to do it several times the first time but after that once a month and no more problem. Well except that she's still here somewhere, LOL.

I have this convo with my buddies all the time. One is going thru a divorce right now.
Out of the hundreds of people I know that have gotten divorced only one or two are more unhappy three years later.

Actually, almost every time she clogs it up I make her help me rod it out. First time was 38 years ago and she put corn shucks down the damn thing. This latest one was a pot full of cooked rice.

It happens once or twice a year. The first one took awhile to clean out. I probably should just take the disposal out.....sigh. The things we do for love.

Wow! What timing.
My wife and I were discussing this very thing yesterday.
We have our granddaughter staying with us and she has been using enormous amounts of toilet paper. My wife buys the big pack at Costco. She put two rolls in my bathroom and four rolls in their bathroom.
She asked me yesterday if I got any TP from her bathroom. I did not and am still working on the first of two she gave me.

All four were gone within a week in their bathroom. 4 rolls in less than a week.
We do not have sewers, we have a septic tank.
I have tried to get this point across with little luck. I am also concerned with other female products that might be going down even though my wife explained this to her.

I see a tank pumping very soon. When it was just me and my wife, I bet we would not have to have it pumped in the remaining years we have left.

We rarely install them anymore. Most people just throw it in the garbage. The greenies compost it.

For the first ten years of marriage my wife's hair was close to waist length. I used to fish it out of the shower drain weekly until the time I handed a rat size ball of it to her. She cut her hair a few weeks later and it became much easier to deal with.

Recently I counted 48 rolls of TP in the pantry. None were in a full package. I guess she just buys some every time she goes to the store. I should just remain positive and be happy we’re not running out.

My point was not how many rolls of TP we have on hand which is substantial. It is how much is being used which is substantial.
This will lead to having the septic tank pumped out. An expense that could be easily avoided.
A question for guys with kids? In particular a 13 year old girl with long hair.
Do you think using up a 50 gallon water heater for 1 shower is normal.
My wife and I never used a whole tank taking back to back showers.

Add a few cans of beans and you’re ready for the Apocalypse.
