The Great TP Debate: over or under

Not that long ago Jenners posted this great post about bathroom ediquette.   The subject came up during potty-training when she realized that her hubby is a folder and she is a baller.  Then a debate ensued about what they would teach their son.

That being said, at work last week I changed the toliet paper roll.

I was actually pretty impressed that I figured out the elaborate gadget shelling the empty roll without asking anyone for help only to be informed that I put it on wrong.

That's right.  I'm not even capable of putting on a toilet paper roll.

Apparently the head cook perfers the roll to roll over and I, in my idiocrocy, put it on under.

You should know that I have never had this conversation with anyone before.  NOT ONCE.  I never even discussed the matter with my husband.  This may shock you but I grew up in a house that had no preference. 


Therefore, I have inherited the WGAF (Who Gives A Fuck) method.  This method is prefered by busy moms and anyone who is just happy that someone put the roll on.

My husband, who I have known for more than half my life, said he does like it over but he doesn't care enough to change it.

13 years of marriage and he never once said a thing. Probably because he knows if he did I would purposely put it on upside down from then on.  What can I say, I'm bitchy like that.

Just when i thought this was the stupidest debate i had ever heard of I saw this while watching Desperate Housewives. That's right....there is a roll poll at Cottonelle. The problem for me is they don't have my WGAF catagory. So give it to me straight...are you over, under or WGAF???

Well, at our house it's WGAF! It's just me and my 13 yr old daughter. We just feel lucky if we aren't screaming at the other to bring us a new roll when we are already on the pot.

LOL.... great post! We are OVER users. hahahaha In face, when our kids would put it on wrong, I had to switch it. That's an OCD behavior I believe. :)

I'm def. in the WGAF category. I have a few OCDisms but this isn't one of them.

It really doesn't phase me. I think it usually is OVER, but not because I plan to do it that way. Now that I'm thinking about it, I bet my hubby changes it if I put it in UNDER. No pun intended, but he is anal that way :)

Definitely WGAF. When one of my sons was at uni, I went to visit him in the apartment he was sharing with 6 other boys, as I sat on the loo, I counted a hundred and twelve empty loo rolls on the floor, it looked quite trendy. WGAF

Over it is - WGAF leads to being castigated and worse. {*grin*}

The only reason this didn't come up in our house is that we are BOTH Overs!! Always ... over!

I learned in nursing school to put the roll over as it makes it easier for the elderly to grasp. I am so glad I put myself in debt to learn such valuable knowledge.
