The Great Toilet Paper Debate: Over or Under?
Ah, the great toilet paper debate. A debate that has raged on for years and years.
If there’s one way to get under my skin, it’s to put the roll of toilet paper under rather than over. I abhor the roll to be under. Always have, always will.
When Glenn stopped by my house last week he used my bathroom and replaced the roll and guess how he did it? Yep- under. Ahhhhh! I went in after him and switched it and he looked at me like I was a mad woman. I completely envy people like Glenn who don’t care either way how to roll is hung.
However, it looks like I’m not alone in my need for the roll to be over. According to an incredibly long article on Wikipedia, 70% of people in the world think that over is the only way to go.
Think about it- if you hang your roll under there’s a chance for the toilet paper to get stuck behind the roll and then you’ve got a chance to contaminate the top of the roll because you have to touch it to roll the roll to un-stick the piece that got lost behind the roll. I think it’s a faster grab and more sanitary to hang the roll over.
How about you? Are you an over or an under toilet paper fan?
