    I Converted ( See I'm Reasonable)

    I used to like it under.. actually I still do. It looks better. But I have changed my preference for practical reasons. I was eavesdropping and heard someone discuss how it is less hygienic to have it under, even though it looks much more attractive. People would be touching...

    why, why would it occur to you that putting it under is a good idea? why make something so simple needlessly complicated? why should i have to reach under and around the back of toilet paper searching for the flap? i mean, come on.

    Because this is the correct way.

    Anyone who prefers it the other way is just twisted.

    Over Is the Way

    I gotta have my TP over.  It just seems like the most logical way to hang it.  I can't stand to have it under.  Fortunately, my bf could care less.  He just sets the new roll on top of the empty one so I put it on the roller myself anyways.  All well...

    I have to have it roll over

    but my roommate doesn't understand the need so whenever she puts on a new she puts under. Then when I see it I have to flip it around and grumble about how hard it is to put on the right way.

    A Little Anal?

    I don't know why it bugs me so much but it does!  If I am at someone's house and the paper is under instead of over, I have to change it!

    Is this TP on the right

    or wrong way? Choosing incorrectly will result in your death.

    Really?? Is There Any Question...

    Over is way better - under always tears off and gets stuck behind the roll! LOL

    Neither, My toilet paper sits on its side on

    the counter next to the sink. I don't care if it uncoils to the right or the left.

    There are many reasons

    why over is better than under. It grabs better, it's more aesthetically pleasing and you can clearly see how far you need to pull it down to reveal the cut-off line. As far as I'm concerned, we really need not have any further discussion about this important matter. Over is the...

    Poppy Says...

    My Grandfather (AKA Poppy), an Army Vet, was always obsessed with the T.P. roll being "the right way". "No one wants to see the backside of your toilet paper!" he would furiously proclaim. As silly as we all thought he was, every family household...

    I never even thought about this

    until a comedian told a story of how turning the roll the other way in someone's house messes with their mind. Now I have a real issue about how bloody toilet roll is situated!!!

    and I argued for YEARS about this! I would get tiny splinters in my fingers when I'd try to get at the 'paperwork' part of the job! (smiling!) I finally just gave up to keep her happy. So, now we've moved, still do it her way and we don't fight. At least now I'm used to it...
