AAAPUTRH* Workshop

Sunday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.
Ladies’ Bathroom
Admission $65 payable at the door of the bathroom

An intensive workshop for the semi-professional toilet roll changer. The workshop deals with all aspects of changing the toilet roll, both technically and emotionally. Breakfast and Lunch will be served.

Topics covered:

1) How to determine if the toilet roll needs changing. (what to do if there is only one sheet remaining on the roll)
2) Technical tasks required for changing the roll. (all types of holders will be discussed and breakout sessions will give practical training, including holders that pop and snap). How do I really know if the paper is supposed to go under or over? Is there a way to get this right the first time? How to avoid embarrassment if the roll falls off the holder while someone is in the next stall.
3) Is this in my job description? (a common problem, and how to solve it)
4) Passive aggressive non-changing of the roll. (is therapy needed?)
5) Should I discard the old cardboard tube or keep it for a Halloween costume or school project? (only parents of small children will be invited to participate in this session)
6) Where should the extra rolls be kept? This session will explore the complete nature of the problem—i.e. should the extra rolls have their own cabinet. Should they be in full view or hidden?
7) Emotional issues surrounding the act of changing. (i.e. feelings such as “I don’t wanna do it” may really mean “I don’t feel capable of doing this”)
8) How to develop the skills required to progress to the professional level of changing. How to become a Master Changer.
9) Upon becoming a Master Changer, how to deal with jealousy from others who are less capable changers.
10)How to encourage others to be supportive of your changing skills.

A certificate of competency from the AAAPUTRH will be provided for each workshop participant who successfully completes the course. A refresher course is provided annually, free of charge.
