28 things - thing 11



Yes I have a preference for how toilet paper is hung on the holder. A weird quirk, I know. And be warned...if I use your bathroom and the roll is the "wrong" way, I will probably flip it. Sorry!

Is toilet paper placement something that has ever crossed your mind? Do you have a preference?

*I will admit though...the 2nd shot makes for a more interesting photo, haha*

  1. OH MY GOSH!!! Jen is like you and I'm the other way, as my mom was. My dad also liked the paper flipped your and Jen's way. XD I love hearing about TP quirks!

  2. same here! lucky for me my boys never put the new roll on lolol ;) so I have to do it!

  3. I'm the same as you... I've even flipped it a few times in public restrooms when they weren't those huge plastic locked things. I didn't realize how bad it was until I did that- but it was like habit, and I never even thought about it until after I was finished making the switch!

  4. haha i like it the other way. makes it easier to rip off with one hand :)

  5. I have this same quirk.. and many others. I am a tad OCD with little things like this. Which way socks should be folded, the colour highlighter that has to be used, and even the volume on the radio landing on an even number!

    I really enjoy this feature of yours. Its honest, and incredibly funny! I've confessed a few things that I thought were a bit weird and trivial about myself, and found that many people in the blog world are exactly the same! It's completely refreshing.

    Looking forward to the next thing x

  7. I like it the same way as you and I have been known to switch other people's toilet paper too ;)

  8. kaisha, i actually didn't realize how particular i could be about certain things until my cousin was helping me at work and i was explaining how i like to do certain things. i was listening to myself tell her all these crazy specifics about how I like to write things, the colours i highlight, how i stack coins. yikes!!

  9. alycia, i find it so much easier to grab when the roll hangs over!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I completely agree. I doesn't make sense for it to dispense at the BACK! Crazies...

  11. I like my TP the same way as yours :) It drives me crazy if it's the wrong way and I fix it at work ALL the time!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I think it's actually an etiquette rule that toilet paper is to be installed like that, no? My grandma used to give me what-for all the time for putting it on the wrong way.

    ReplyDelete
  13. hahah! I never paid attention to it until the toilet paper company started putting the roll poll ads on TV, like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLgMIPJ1AH0

    I started paying more attention and I place it in the holder like you. "OVER"

    ReplyDelete
  14. hahaha this makes me laugh!
    i like it the second way! and pete likes the same way as you. we always joke around about it! i guess it all depends on how you are used to it growing up, what a funny thing! hehe, so cute!

    xo

  15. I agree with the TP, and I think a lot of people get annoyed with it actually! I hate when people have it on wrong! I am pretty sure the "correct" way is the way you (And I) like it :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am totally with you! And I would probably switch it around as well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU and everyone thinks I'm crazy! This is the proper way, people. The PROPER WAY! (as you can see I have had many passionate debates on this topic. ;))

  18. I've definitely turned it the "right" way at peoples homes,restaurants you name it...and I quietly flip it when my sweet husband makes an effort to replace it:D

    ReplyDelete
  19. hhahaha I do the same!!!! even when I am hanging paper when I am visiting someone, always this way haha;D

    ReplyDelete
  20. What kind of idiot hangs it the other way?! :]

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  24. hahaha I have the same weird quirk with you! And I always, ALWAYS flip it when I use someone's bathroom and the roll is the "wrong" way. I sometimes wonder if they ever notice it. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I rolls better in the first pic. I had to giggle about these quirks. How perceptive of you, and judging by the other comments, you are not alone- we are all just as barmey!

  26. I have super OCD with toilet paper. I have an aneurysm every time I see it the wrong way.

    ReplyDelete
  27. aye my last roommate and I would argue over this, I am with you on this...she on the other hand didnt agree. hahaa.

    ReplyDelete
  28. omgoodness thank you:) if i'm in a friends house and its the wrong way round I shout down and tell them off and put it the right way!!!!!!!! lol i'm certain they do it to annoy me now lol
    major ocd and i can only have white loo roll too!!! lol x

    ReplyDelete
  29. I prefer your way too ^^
    We have a "special system" which makes it really easy to rip off the paper.

    ReplyDelete
  30. hahaha, i do the same thing. you should read the book "I am neurotic" you'd probably enjoy all the different OCD moments that people have shared in it.

  31. I'm right there with you too and I totally go around correcting it, it drives me mad when you go in a public restroom and it's a 'locked' holder and on the wrong way! Argh! *biting fist*

    ReplyDelete
  32. haha, I'm the same way. One of my bf's friends came over when we first moved in and he checked out our bathroom to make sure I put the tp the "right way". He's on the same boat as us, but apparently his wife isn't and it drives him crazy :P

    ReplyDelete
  33. I agree! About the paper and the photo!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm the same as you :) have to try and not be ocd at work and flip it! ;)

    :)

    interesting photos tho!

  35. I never even knew there was a wrong way to hang toilet paper until my husband pointed it out. I don't have a preference. As long as there is paper on the roll when I need it, I'm happy.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yea I like it over 'cause for some reason when ours is under it rips and breaks a lot... I don't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. bahaha. I LOVE this! At least now I know that I'm not the only one that this drives crazy. haha. I am the one to fix the toilet paper at others' houses. haha.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm an over toilet paper girl, not under. And I have also been known to flip it around in random places if it's the wrong way.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have to have it that way too!! I get so annoyed when someone puts it in wrong haha

    ReplyDelete
  40. haha i'm the same. it has to be out and i will flip it if you dont have it right.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm the same way! I told my husband once that I'd rather he just leave it on the counter so I can put it on right!! :)

    Oh, and according to a Cottonelle survey, almost 70% of Americans put it on the right way! :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toilet_paper_orientation

  42. Wow I had no idea people were so passionate about their toilet paper hanging. I just throw it on there any which-way.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yes!! Mine has to be that way round!

    ReplyDelete
  44. You are not alone! And for some reason, the men in my life can't figure it out. Jerks!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm the same! I have no idea why but I prefer it that way, maybe cause I'm used to it :P
    xxx

    ReplyDelete
  46. haha! I was just talking to my mum about this the other day - I have always liked mine the same as you but she likes it the other way. She showed me an article in the paper proving that her way was the best way to save toilet paper!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh my gosh, YES! I get so annoyed when it's the other way... I don't even know why?!

  48. doesn't everyone have a preference?
    OVER never under. same goes for paper towels... not that I use them much in my house.

    ReplyDelete
  49. haha Im the same! well I don't change it at other peoples houses,or in public but in my toilet, it has to be that over way, Ill change it if my partner puts it on "wrong" too hah!

    ReplyDelete
  50. This is hilarious, Hollie and I were just talking about this last week. Did you know that under (the 2nd picture) is actually the correct way, etiquette wise? It is!

    ReplyDelete
  51. haha I'm the same way! And at my dance studio its always the other way :O I always change it but its always back to the other when I come back! grrr
    xox

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh gosh. This literally made me laugh out loud. I absolutely HATE it when it's done the wrong way. And has anyone ever noticed that while most people do it the right way in their homes (Elycia's way), most public places do it the other way? It's so annoying....but it never fails.

    ReplyDelete
  53. hahaha, my bf likes it "your" way....I prefer it the "wrong" way. But it doesn't bother me as much as it bothers him, so I let him have it his way.

    ReplyDelete
  54. My sister-in-law once flipped all the paper rolls in her office, and the next time she went in the bathroom someone had flipped them all back the other way!! Cracks me up. I personally don't have a preference. As long as there IS toilet paper on the roll when I need it!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have a firm belief that that is the way toilet paper should be hung!

    ReplyDelete
  56. This is the proper way to do it. I find myself changing it in others bathrooms sometimes. That is a little overboard though :)
