Over vs Under

Do you put your toilet paper on so the paper hangs under or over? I always prefer over and will sometimes go so far as to change toilet paper in others' bathrooms. I am sure most of you are not as psychotic as me & don't even notice. My mother-in-law is one of the normal people who does not sacrifice any of her attention to such useless details, but somehow manages to have the paper hang under in every bathroom of her house.....and she has 3....houses. Yes, I am anal retentive....or maybe not & you'll start to notice this very stupid & insignificant detail. No, not so much? Hmmm....this post is such a waste of time.

I am always relieved that there is tp there when I need it! So far the only other person at my house that has changed it besides me is Ellie. The 2 year old.

Talk about pet peeves!

I totally switch toilet paper when it is on the wrong way, especially at my mother-in-laws house. It drives me crazy! Sadly, we don't keep our TP on the "holder (is that what it's called)" because my angelic child, Abby thinks it fun to see how fast she can unwind the TP!

Hmmm, I am not sure what I am more amazed about. Tha fact that their are others like me who know that the toilet paper must come off the top of the roll or that in writing your blog you have actually found pictures of the tp coming of the holder from both directions. Obviously I am a blogger rookie!

Over, most definitely. Although I can't say I've actually changed it at anyone's house. I do hate the huge ginormous rolls in public restrooms that don't move so you're pulling on it and ripping off one useless square at a time. Well, I just plain old dislike public restrooms!

it is supposed to go over. but is it bad that occasionally i put it the wrong way just to annoy my husband who NEVER replaces it?!

Ohh- Rach- you and I are kindred souls!!!! I've actually switched the tp to hang over at the lake house- twice! I'm definitely an OVER gal! Dave doesn't care about over vs. under, and he still puts it on the wrong way- even AFTER he's been educated!

Over is the only way to go.. I always switch the roll regardless of where I am, and yell at under people all of the time. OCD at its finest!

i am also an over person, i am constantly fixing the under problem at work and found out that there is an under person there who is constantly fixing my over rolls, neither one of us has given up yet and we are constantly changing the rolls back and forth
