Life is all about compromises.

Marriage is all about compromises.

But, people, there are some things I refuse to compromise on.

Like toilet paper.

This is a serious thing. I will only buy Cottenelle toilet paper in my house. I figure I am the one who is doing most of the TP using so Keith can just live with it.

Like paper towels.

This one is a constant battle between us. I buy Viva. Yes, I know they are the most expensive paper towel on the market. I get it. But they are the best. And when Keith buys the crap $0.99 cent paper towels I use three times as many and then it isn’t so cost-effective is it?

Like tampons.

Now I know Keith has no dog in this fight except to buy them for me when I sweetly bat my eyelashes and beg. But I gotta have the Tampax Pearl Unscented tampons. No ifs, ands, or buts to this one. Anything else will be returned. And I am not too proud to wait in the customer service line at the grocery store to return tampons.

Like Smart Water.

I like it. Period. No other reason. I want Smart Water as my bottled water of choice. Thank you Costco for making this possible.

Like Coke.

No Pepsi is not okay. When I order coke at a restaurant I want coke. Not Pepsi, Not RC Cola. Coke.

Like Orbitz gum.

It is the best and longest lasting gum out there, in my opinion. No other brand will do. Orbitz Wintermint will have my heart forever.

Like sheet tucking.

Now this is another constant struggle. I like my sheet tucked in at the bottom. It drives me crazy if I pull up my sheet and my feet stick out. This happens way too often.

I promise I am a good compromiser. I just like to have my way first! ha! 😉

What is one thing you won’t compromise on?

    The TP made me laugh. In our house it’s my husband who wants the good TP. He complains that the one I buy is too soft or too hard. My compromise = he can buy it himself!

    I use Scott TP in my house, no compromises there. And I have to have q tip brand cotton swabs, the other brands just aren’t as good! I’m sure that are many more things, but I’ll leave you with that 🙂

    I am the same way with tampons, the same kind you like too.

    Ah I can relate to do many of these! Let’s be best friends!

    Funny– I won’t compromise on UN-tucked sheets!! It drives me crazy if my feet are trapped down there!!!

      Half the reason I love hotels is how tightly tucked the sheets are!

    I 100% agree
    …on the first 5 🙂
    But I am a no-tuck girl, I like to actually tuck the sheets under my feet so they are completely surrounded by linens.
    But I’m back with you on #6.

    I am the SAME way with Tampons, NOTHING else will do! Pearl is a must 🙂 But I do get the scented.
    Oh & the same way with my sheets- I HATE not being tucked in!

    There must be no other paper towel in my house besides one that is Viva. I am in love with them!!!

    haha definitely toilet paper! My bf used to buy the huge kirkland brand tp and it seemed like he would go through a roll a day! So gross. I prefer quilted northern. Not too soft, but not like paper either. I like cottonelle too for sure, but hate charmin! You pull it off the roll and little particles go flying all over the place! So annoying.

    I’m quite loyal to Charmin. Quite loyal. For me no compromising on: Triscuits (not the store brand), OB tampons, Charmin TP, Toilet Paper facing up on the roll, beds made each day, Dark Chocolate (no milk or white) and wordpress over blogger.

    Happy Friday to you!

    Have you ever noticed that the fancier the place (restaurant, hotel, etc), the cheaper the TP!? It’s infuriating. My aunt made fun of me once because I noticed that she changed TP brands in her very nice house (she’s a 1-ply gal usually?!). Too funny.

    I don’t compromise on cheese. Sorry, reduced fat is not the same, and it tastes like plastic.

    Oh man, drinking Coke is a no-compromise for me too. When I am craving pop…it WILL be coke. No, Pepsi isn’t okay, it tastes like crap.

    And having the TP facing OUT when you put it on the dispenser is also something that’s very important to me. I hate when it rolls under…grr.

    • November 13, 2011 5:49 pm

      Me too! I actually change the TP roll at people’s houses if it rolls under.

    I’m a total sheet tucker! My bf just gets into the bed and untucks everything immediately… it’s an ongoing battle!

    Nothing is more annoying than people who serve cheap/weak Coffee…. I have to bring my own when I visit my Mother….she still drinks Folgers and makes it so weak, you can see the bottom of your cup.

    So, basically your husband does the compromising because you like expensive brand names.
