Does it bug you if someone puts the toilet paper in "wrong?"

Is there a "right" way to put in the toilet paper in your house? Myself, I like it over the top. My sister always puts it hanging towards the back so you have to reach under the roll to grab it. It never fails to annoy me! Which way do you put it in? :D

I always have it hanging toward the back like your sister does. I never really gave it much thought to why I do it. I can see the reason for for having it at the front so it is not as far away and easier to reach. I think in my mind that having it hanging at the back it takes up less space and makes the bathroom seem bigger

In that case, you are not allowed to change the roll in my house, even if it makes the bathroom seem bigger! lol!

Maybe someone should invent toilet paper that dispenses from the middle and then we would all be happy.

Yes! If someone puts the toilet paper on 'backwards' it drives me crazy. I feel like the flap of the toilet paper should be on top, not on bottom and it drives me insane if someone doesn't put it on how it should be put on. I have to change it. If I ignore it I'll end up going back a few moments later to change it. It bugs me that much.

LOL that's funny, I've done that, too. I tell myself it's really not that big of a deal, then I go back and change it anyway. LOL.

Yes! LOL. It bugs me that much. I'm like you know, it's not so bad. I can leave it alone. And then five minutes later I'm in the bathroom grumbling about how I just should have done it a few minutes ago lol.

Hi, cortypants. I put my toilet paper the right way in our house. And I get so irritated when I see a toilet paper hanging toward the back. However, in my office, I have to take out the carton roll from the toilet paper roll (lol!) before putting it in my round toilet paper dispenser. The toilet paper gets used up from inside the roll first. Have a nice day!

As a matter of fact, there IS a right way to put the toilet paper and it is over the top!!! I get really annoyed when someone puts it on so it comes out under the bottom!! :P

Yes! There is a right way. Over the top is the right way in my mind and home. If hubby or stepson put the paper on the "wrong" way, I will fix it every time. I am so bad that I even change the rolls in the employee bathroom at work. I like it over the top because you never know what is on the wall underneath. I mean what if the last person in there had urine or BM on their hands and got it on the wall?
