No towels in the shower! Who's at fault for setting this deadly trap?
The Official Significant Other of The Reckoner and I are at it again, this time about the always hotly contested debate of who should make sure there are towels in the shower!
You see, our bathroom doesn't really have storage space for towels, so we typically keep the fresh ones in the bedroom. Towel storage in the bathroom is limited to the customary places -- one hook on the bathroom door and another by the shower -- to keep them handy for when you get out of the shower or wash your hands in the sink.
This situation allows for the following delightful scenario to play out roughly twice a week:
- The Significant Other of the The Reckoner:
Takes a shower and uses the available towels in the bathroom to make one of those towel turbans that women somehow instinctively know how to make. Seriously, how do they do that?
Takes a shower afterwards, realizes that there are no towels left in the bathroom, panics, slips on the floor, and knocks himself unconscious against the bahtroom sink.
After I come to several hours later, Sal and I typically have the following argument:
- Me: "Why did you steal all of the towels out of the bathroom?!"
- Sal: "Why did YOU take a shower without bringing a towel for yourself?!"
I really don't have the time in my The Reckoner!-choked schedule to spend fifteen hours a week unconscious in the bathroom, so I need you to settle this for me, dear Reckonauts!
Tell me, dear Reckonauts -- who's at fault here! The person who took all the towels out of our bathroom, or the person who didn't bring any the next time he went to take a shower?
