Random Thoughts – on toilet paper

When you go into other people’s bathrooms,

and the toilet paper faces the “wrong” way,

do you ever change it?


Just so you know,

I wanted to,

but I didn’t.


So, over or under – how do you roll?

  1. Raised “under”, married an “over”. So in the interest of maintaining peace, “over”.

    • It’s all about compromise! I can’t even remember how my mom does it. It must be over, since I’m an over.

  2. i have wanted to, but didnt. but in public restrooms, i have changed it as it should come from the top.

    • Haha, that’s funny! I am an over the top roller myself. That’s the right way to do it, haha.

  3. I’m an over. I have never changed the roll of someone who does it wrong. I have a friend who never seems to have toilet paper in her bathroom…I’d be happy if she did it wrong.

    • Haha, that’s the worst. That and no soap or towels to wash your hands. I’m terrible about washing the towels and forgetting to put another one up right when guests are coming.

  4. Boots,
    My tendancies to Over- Arch extend in this department. I’ll swap the roll in various circumstances particularly if it is a house I’m never going back to or aren’t likely to return visit for a while. Subconsciously I probably select friends weighing this criteria heavily. Once I was visiting a home where the toilet paper was folded in a V like the nose of a paper airplane about to glide off the top of the roll…I fell in love with the hostess immeadiately.

    • Haha! I bet. That is a hostess who goes above and beyond. 🙂

      So it looks like “over” is the winning preference! At least in this little section of the internet. And I’m surprised – though I guess I shouldn’t be – that people change the toilet paper when it’s “wrong”. I think that’s hilarious.
