Right then, imagine for a moment you are charged with the task of replacing the bog roll dispensers in an office of about 300 people and removing the shelves on the back walls. Starting point is this; there are dispensers on the side walls of the cubicles and shelves on the back walls containing replacement bog rolls. Surely a logical approach to ensure minimal degradation of service is to first remove the dispensers at the side, then place the new dispensers on the side walls, then fill the new dispensers, then remove the shelves at the back. This approach ensures there is always bog roll available for patrons of the khazis.

But no, the rather dumb looking young fellow charged with this great responsibility has followed the procedure written on a piece of paper by his numpty manager;
1 remove all the shelves with the replacement rolls
2 remove all the old dispensers
3 place all the new dispensers
4 fill all the new dispensers

This causes a period of approximately 3 hours in which there is no bog roll available in the office.
Now I'm a tester, not an astrophysicist, and I can work out a way of ensuring minimal dispruption to shitting requirements, so why can't he?

What an idiot.

You have an astrophysicist replacing your toilet roll dispensers? Wow.

Well, either he's one of those extremely clever people who isn't capable of simple tasks or he's an idiot. Maybe I'm being too charitable.

maybe he is secretly smiling inwardly at the idea of the whole office 'touching cloth' while he pootles around.

Personally I would remove shelves, spare rolls and dispensers from all bog and then bugger off for a long lunch break, just like they did here the other week...Luckily there are bogs on every floor and in other buildings and if all else fails, there's some big bushes in the little garden out back (or a PM's desk drawers)

I finally managed to shit in the factory building nextdoor.

Should have nabbed a roll for yourself and stood outside charging £1 a sheet.

Bog roll is like sun cream (in hot weather), and wellies (in the rain), that suddenly becomes worth more than gold in the middle of a long weekend at a music feastival
