even if i don't need the tp but i notice that there's only a few squares left on the roll, i'll change it out to make sure there's plenty for the next time she needs it.

it's a small thing, but i really believe it's something that helps me keep my head and heart right wrt to my wife. it's a small thing that opened my eyes as to how i can better serve her in both small and big ways.
We went the opposite way. When we remodeled the bathroom, we were debating between two toilet paper holders (a plain one, and a cool one that looks like an octopus holding the roll) and we ended up going with both. So we use the "plain" on and the octopus holds the extra roll. The roll on the octopus lasts a really long time, but it's there for those times when you want to use a little more paper than was on the roll. And when it gets low, I switch to using it until it runs out and I can re-fill it.

No wasted paper. Chuck commented that he hasn't had to change a toilet paper roll since the remodel.

I missed the part where everybody was talking about their respective dishwashers - however - I would still like to take this opportunity to praise Thermador for giving me the gift of a dishwasher that actually cleans the god damn dishes.

Just another thing that used to bother me more than it should have.

Also: when guests put dirty dishes in my sink, bonus angry points if there is water in any of those dishes (e.g. dumping a bunch of silverware in a glass and then either filling it or letting running water accumulate in the glass). The dishwasher is right next to the sink, and the sink is always empty and clean, hint hint. It's more of a nasty mess to handle dishes/utensils placed in the sink that way than to just put them directly in the dishwasher. Ugh.

Finally: when the neighbors park their car on the street in front of my house. Bonus angry points if they don't use the space in front of their own house. I know it's a public street, but we all have two-car garages, a driveway, and space for one car in front of our houses. Stay in your own space.
Your neighbors have probably come to realize that you won't need the space for guests.

Are the two towels clearly labeled somehow? Do they look different in a way that one exudes "items" while the other hollers "hands"?

False. It should irritate you that much, Mr Klozov.

Similarly, seeing "chute" spelled 'shoot' or "fretting" spelled 'gretting'.

And every time it happens, I lose my shit.
You need to spread the butter while the toast is still hot, Mr Shankly.
