Dear Massi, My father-in-law has a really weird habit.  He steals toilet rolls from work.

I don’t think they have realised that I noticed so I don’t want to say anything to my husband. My mother-in-law is there encouraging him too. They act really proud of themselves every time he brings it home.

It’s really weird, seeing as toilet roll isn’t exactly expensive to buy. Should I say something?

Massi says, As strange and unorthodox as this behaviour seems to you, it would be better to remain detached from the situation.

Essentially it does not concern you and highlighting it will only serve to create a potentially embarrassing or awkward environment.

We all have our personal idiosyncrasies, and whilst stealing toilet roll from work cannot be condoned, you being critical of this will not necessarily stop your father-in-law from continuing to do this.
