How Do You Let It Hang?

It's time to address one of the most serious questions of our age. A question that has divided spouses, lovers, roommates, and families for decades. A question that simply must be answered! Do you hang toilet paper so it dispenses from the top of the roll, or so it comes out from underneath and behind the roll?

My husband and I are both "on top" people. :)

From the top. In my husbands bathroom he hangs it from underneath. It drives me crazy. At night in the dark I bat at it forever. Pretty hilarious. I can never remember which way he hangs it, or worse! he mixes it up. I've found if you hit it hard enough it will give off a few sheets. Damn him.

I'm with cmd0610. It does not bother me either way. As long as there is something there and not an empty roll. That is a different story.

I was an "over the top," until my kids came along. Then, I was told to turn the paper around so they wouldn't "bump" it and unwind a whole roll... Yeah, until my determined Bella found the edge underneath and managed to unroll 3/4 of a roll before I heard her giggling. So, I figured, she can get to it either way, so I have happily returned to "over the top."

Over the top. My boyfriend is usually too lazy to change the roll before I do, so I nearly always get my way. :)

I HAVE to have it over the top because if it goes underneath, you cant find the roll then your reaching off the john and sprinkling everywhere :P

over the top.. but its funny, since a radio station i was hearing recently said fugal people tend to keep it facing down rather then over the top...

I've never really thought about it really but I think it just rolls better from other the top so I picked that option...

Over the husband is the same way. And so were my parents when I lived at home. I don't know of any "from the bottom" people! LOL

Sunshinepoint--LOL! Yeah. Um, I've been known to actually change it to over-the-top in bathrooms that aren't mine. It drives me insane! It's so hard to find when it's on backwards!!!!!

however it comes out when i put the roll on. It's a stupid thing to get mad or irritated over. It still ends up [pun not intended] in the same place!

Ivygreene, you're not the only one. I just think it looks neater (that's MY OCD kicking in) and rolls better from the bottom. But, I will take sonya ina's comment into consideration - I didn't know over-the-top saves paper! This is such a funny poll, Bella! :)

I must be the only one who likes it from the bottom. for my boyfriends sake (who likes it the other way), I alternate.

I have done the same thing momma tikita. I am an over the top bandit. I change toilet paper rolls all the time. Luckily (or maybe not) my boyfriend never changes the roll so I get to be the topper LOL

Over the top, and I will change it at people's houses because it bugs me.

Ha ha @jennythereader and @momma tikita. You're both funny. My roommate is an "under" and I'm a topper, but I've decided to let it go to keep our relationship happy and peaceful.

Neither. Our cats love playing with the toilet paper, so we keep it in a drawer that is right by the toilet.

omg Bella...its like you read my mind today! My husband put a new roll today and it pissed me because it was on the bottom...I hate that! For some reason it ANNOYS me!! So I was thinking..who in their right mind leaves it on the bottom? CONFESSION: If Im in a public bathroom and the paper dispenses from the bottom I will change it around :p I have a problem :rotfl:
