…toilet paper up or down?
My family got into a debate over Thanksgiving regarding how to put the toilet paper on the holder, with the new sheet over the top or the new sheet coming out the back (pull it from under the roll). Some argued that the toilet paper should be pulled from the top, especially for paper with patterns poked into it. Others argued that you should load the paper so you pull it from back to front (towards you) because it’s more ergonomic. Aren’t family gatherings fabulous? 😉

Hehe, I like to have the TP come from underneath the roll. I have to admit that I usually have some sort of reading material in the bathroom… the under way makes it so you can rest your wrist on the roll and pull one handed so you don’t have to put the magazine down.

Definitely over! Under is just weird to me! 🙂

I think over the top seems neater.

It’s gotta be over! When my mom visits she changes it to under, just to drive me nuts. The bad part about it is that now FI will go into my bathroom and do it too!

I really don’t care. People yell at me whenever I put the roll on going under, haha! It’s just not something I think about. What drives me crazy is when there’s one teeny tiny square of TP left on the roll, but someone was too lazy to put the new roll on so it sits on top of the old one. Ugh! Seriously, if you’re going to play those games, you’ll have to deal with the roll ocassionally coming out underneath.

never thought about it! I am just happy when FI actually remembers to replace the roll, instead of leaving it sitting on top of the toilet!!!

I like it over the top. It just gets way to confusing when your trying to reach underneath and pinch a peice. If I get too frusterated I just start slapping the roll until it un-rolls its self! LOL

@cbee: Exactly! I don’t know what’s worse, that they change it, or that I notice it as soon as I walk into the bathroom! Hello OCD!
@MissFlipFlops:And that’s why I like it over. Plus, I have a toddler and he’ll unroll it all over the place trying to find the end piece if its not over.

HAHA that is beyond hilarious… I love family get-together’s!
I was taught to always pull it over the top. FI doesn’t do it that way and it drives me nuts, but I honestly think he just puts the thing on there without examining it, rather than him intentionally doing it — OR maybe he does it because he knows it bugs me. Hmmm..
At hotels they always seem to pull it over the top and do some fancy folding thing – so that’s a good point of argument 😉 lol

I had always preferred under because it tore easier for me. When we started living together BF, now DH, did over. It would bug the heck out of me and i’d always fix it, but eventually i let go and dont care anymore. Now when i replace the roll i put it whichever way it comes out, doesn’t matter as long as it cleans my butt!

over the top for sure. I can’t stand it when it comes from underneath (FI doesn’t notice which way he puts it on which drives me nuts!!) so I always change it if it’s backwards!!!

I change it if it’s wrong too.
