once and for all.   We all know that the proper way to load a tp roll is so that it spools out underhand but lets hear from the masses.(I would have put a poll in post but didn't see how to.)

I live alone, so I just set the roll on the floor in front of the can.

Against the wall:

Communists, Anarchists, Flag-burners, General no-good-niks.

Over the top:

Flag loving, Patriotic True Americans.

There, settled. [:D]

My personal preference is over, but as long as there [i]is[/i] some (even if it's under the sink,) I'm a happy crapper!

Under....than gravity helps you find the edge of the damn thing when it's time to spool some off!

Wow! I didn't think you knew me! [:D]

I keep my roll on the tank, but when I do mount it, it's UNDER!

I have noticed that the women I visit tend to load the roll under, while the men tend to load over. Just an observation in my neck of the woods. I make sure to correct the minor womanly errors before I leave.

Over, of course.  Under is just....well....WRONG!!
Link Posted: 6/11/2002 4:05:59 PM EST
however it happens to end up!!!! So long as there is TP for my bunghole!!!

Link Posted: 6/11/2002 4:09:18 PM EST
I used to insist on under.  Then I finally got it through my rock-hard skull that that meant the paper would drag on the wall and pick up any splattering that was left there by guests, tradeworkers, or other family members.

Now I hang the TP roll in the much more sanitary over position.  Only inbred fools hang it under.

It's easier to grab a handful and give it a tear in those "hurried" situations.

When my wife and I got married, she would put it on the way her family did...the underhand way.  I would go in, see it on the "wrong way" and I would change it.  Then when she went back in there, she would change it back.  She thought she ws going crazy, not knowing if she put it on over or under handed.  Now if she gets a new roll, she justs sets it on the countertop and I wind up putting it on the right way (overhanded).

You gotta be shittin' me: "OVER!" [;D]
Link Posted: 6/11/2002 5:44:11 PM EST
[b]SuperChicken[/b] said it best.  By the looks of things, only Taliban sympathizers, liberals and the criminally insane roll theirs under.

I'm looking forward to [b]Bunghole's[/b] answer -- either he's a true afficionado of things bungholey or an he's imposter.  We won't know until he makes his preference known to the world.

Over, of course. It's easier to see and grab the edge when there's no dangling piece.

Over, but lately we've been keeping them on the tanks because of our toddler.

Whatever way it comes out when I install it.

The hospitaility industry across the nation instructs the housekeepers to place the toilet paper on the spools in an overhand condition. This allows the paper to roll off correctly with the imprint (if there is one) on the paper being in correct position for the user to enjoy what the user would of the imprint on the toilet paper.

I don't know why you guys bother to roll this stuff. I just leave it in the phone book 'til it's time to use it.
Link Posted: 6/12/2002 2:47:12 AM EST
Well, mine goes overhand for all the wrong reasons:

I have two cats, and of course they will decide to tear it all to shreds, so under would be better.

If it's threaded under, it rips easier, and of course that makes more sense as well.

My kids replace it underhand, so I probably ought to leave it like that for them.

But I leave mine overhand because my ex-wife threads it underhand.  She'd always bic...complain when I put it on wrong, and since my kids spend most of their time at her house, they've been brainwashed into believing that under is better.

Well, I'll admit that it is, but I'll thread it over for the rest of my life [:D]

Oh, and unless my daugther, or a lady friend is over, I leave the toilet seat in whatever position it was in during last use!

No doubt about it - over!
Link Posted: 6/12/2002 9:30:17 AM EST

But what if you have one of those commercial dispensers that side load with the super jumbo roll. Then do you load it to roll towards you or away from you?
Link Posted: 6/12/2002 3:29:27 PM EST
Over, because its easier to grab. CD
Link Posted: 6/12/2002 3:57:52 PM EST
it,s got to be over but alot of the time its just sitting on the back of the toilet or on the side of the tub because everybody is just too lazy to replace the old one.
Link Posted: 6/13/2002 7:28:17 AM EST
If I'm visiting someone/anyone's home and I find that some dumb ass has installed the toilet paper backwards (underhand) I immediately correct the situation. [:D]

Overhand.  Don't let Senior Drill Instructor Staff Sergeant Cochran find a communist underhand load in the shitter!  He will take us ALL to the dirt!
