Oh Joy

let's discuss: the toilet paper roll...
11 Aug 2017

which direction do you put the toilet paper roll on? over or under?

There's something that happens in my house every few days that almost causes my husband and I to go our separate ways in life...

We cannot agree on the direction the toilet paper roll should be placed on the toilet paper holder. We have disagreed about this for the 20+ years we have been together. When he refills it, it puts the loose end on TOP. When I refill it, I put the loose end on the BOTTOM. So, if I see the roll close to being finished (but not quite there), I will refill it before he gets to it so that I can put it on the "correct" way.

I am guessing that the correct way is actually the way he does it since that's the way they seem to do in every hotel I have ever stayed at, and I feel like hotels are supposed to know the proper way to do things. BUT, I still prefer the "under" method because it's easier to roll back up that way. And if you have cats or babies, they are less likely to be able to unravel the roll in the under position...so really, I just want a less messy bathroom at the end of the day. I mean, have you ever seen a cat unravel a whole roll of toilet paper when it's placed with the end on top? It's a disaster.

So, tell me, friends, which way do you go when it comes to toilet paper?
