My Verse is "Werse"

SO's sister and daughter have long brown hair and have a habit of leaving it all over the bathroom. She wanted me to make a sign for the bathroom but I thought she should just speak to them directly.

So, 'This mister resisted, the sweetheart persisted.' She smiled and I caved.

I decided a quick rhyming ditty would deliver the message a little more softly.



Ladies!

Your hair is lovely, dark and long

It's been immortalized in song

In sink, tub or floor, you cannot leave it

Before you go you must retrieve it

Pretty good, Andy. Sort of the distaff version of: We aim to please. You aim too, please.

Sorry, the devil made me do it.

Good rhyme.
And if that doesn't work you can always start leaving some of your *hairs* on the shower soap

I also shed but after I am finished brushing &/or combing my hair I always use a dust buster & vacuum the floor, just a little hint!

There's a mini vac in each bathroom but that doesn't help with the sink and shower.

Great rhyme, Andy! Long hair is a definite problem with shower clogs. I try to save mine, pick it up, ball it up, and throw it in the garbage after I finish showering. I also de-hair my brush, and clean around the sink after use.

Hmm. Probably TMI.

Andy, it helps if they stopper up the sink before they brush/comb/blowdry. Easy to gather up and pitch the hair rather than having it go down the drain and clog it. Just one more thing to...um, encourage them to do.

Dawg, when you clean your hair out of the brush leave it in a bush in the garden. There are birds who love to use hair for building their nests. More entertainment for Beagle!

I keep a roll of paper towels in the bathroom for hand washing. Saves on towels and is more sanitary. After I wipe my hands, I use the towel to wipe out the sink and surrounding areas. I always buy the "you choose the size" towels. You don't need half a roll just to wipe your hands and the sink.
