Toilet Paper Purchased "Just In Time" Before Running Out
Crisis Is Averted Before Houseguest Planned To Arrive At Steve's Apartment
May 22, 2002
MANITOU SPRINGS, CO - A major crisis was thankfully avoided! Whew!
Steve "ColoradoGuy" Garufi wisely remembered to purchase a large package of
toilet paper "just in time" before running out in his Manitou Springs apartment today,
avoiding a potential crisis with a houseguest who visited that day.
"It was a good thing that I remembered, because Jae is coming over tonight
to play Skip-Bo and maybe Scrabble again," explained
Steve (photo below), "I would hate to think what could have happened."
While buying other items at a local drugstore (expensive conditioner and a package
of candy), Steve remembered he was
down to his last roll of toilet tissue in his bathroom.
The 12-pack of Quilted Northern, bought for $4.95, averted a potential crisis.
Steve usually keeps a sizeable stock of toilet paper in storage
(usually about 12 to 24 rolls), but because he had been
procrastinating in abiding by his bi-weekly schedule to visit the supermarket, supply
was extremely low.
"In a worst case scenario, I could go over to Donna's or Jae's house, but geez,
that would have been bad." Steve admitted.
Overall, reactions from the ColoradoGuy community upon hearing the news have been mixed.
"It's really weird, telling someone that you ran out of toilet paper … that's
just kind of personal." said Amber Wilson.
Ben Paulson, a "regular" on the forums, offered words
of support: "(This) demonstrates your careful planning to avoid crisis situations ... to be
caught on the toilet, and discover that there is no toliet paper, is an experience
that is compareable to pouring a bowl of cereal and discovering there is no milk."
Steve is well-known for showing off intricate details
in his apartment,
but this is the first time that he is allowing content about his bathroom to be published.
