So since I’m moving in with my fiance next week (so excited!!), I’ve decided it’s time to start imposing my will on one specific issue: the toilet paper roll. I firmly believe it’s better under, but he puts it over. So I’ve been changing it during this weekend’s visit. So far, I’ve switched it twice, and he’s switched it back both times, and hasn’t said anything. But every time I see it switched, I’m just gonna switch it back. I really just want to see how long it takes for him to bring it up. 🙂
We’ve had debates over it before, of course, but no, this isn’t something we’re gonna fight over. If TP is that important to him, he can have it. I’ll learn to live with wrong toilet paper. This is just really funny to me. 😀 We’re on 3 days so far, but I’m leaving tonight. The count will resume next week!

Psh, under is just wrong, I’m with your FI! lol. According to cnet (yes, people actuall study this apparantely!), 70% say over =P

@laceywings: Love that, haha.
Thankfully Fiance and I both approve of over, but I would so be winning that battle if he felt otherwise 😉

That’s halarious! What fun would it be living with a boy if you couldn’t “fight” with him and maybe eventually get your way??

However here is another vote that your Fiance is correct 😉
Think it is time to come to the dark side.. the side where the TP goes OVER! 😀

@sweetpea87: Over is most definitely correct, except when you do have a cat then one has to live with under or face buying 38 rolls of TP every week.
On a related note, we did have a similar passive-aggressive situation with the AC temp in the car during a drive this weekend 🙂

This is one of the cutest battles I’ve ever heard of!!! Sounds like something I’d do with my DH!!! 🙂

I don’t even look when I put our TP on. I think Fiance has a preference, though. He can switch it around if he wants. 🙂

Sorry, I’m with your FI! My Fiance and I had the same debate when we moved in together. It drives me nuts when it’s under!

OVER, OVER, OVER!!! Luckily, hubby and I agree on this! lol. A friend posted on this on Facebook a while ago, and everyone except on person said over. That one person was like, “It’s easier to tear off when it’s under!”…um…it’s TOILET PAPER! It’s not hard to tear no matter which direction the roll goes! lol!
