Which Way Does the Toilet Paper Go?

The toilet paper ran out in the bathroom the other day, and Paul took it upon himself to re-stock it. I know what you're thinking, Wow! My husband just waits until he's sitting on the crapper, so that he can yell for me to get him some toilet paper. Well, he does that too, but I'm not sure which annoys me most...the yelling for me to get him some toilet paper or the fact the he puts the toilet paper under instead of over.

To me, there is nothing about putting the toilet paper under that makes any sense whatsoever. It's harder to get to, harder to tear, and for some reason, sometimes, the paper clings to the rest of the roll and it's hard to find the part you need to tear off. You are left sitting there on the porcelain throne, rolling that toilet paper around and around, trying to find that subtle little line that lets you know that this where you need to start. I'm sorry, but when I use the potty, I want to use the potty and get out of there; I don't want to spend the time, trying to find where to detach the toilet paper from the rest of the roll. Now, men on the other hand, could spend hours sitting on the toilet (that's another story for another day), reading, watching t.v, etc. I am even sure they would prefer to take their meals on the potty.

Anyway, after Paul put the toilet paper on wrong, I decided that I would test it out; to prove a point. All three times that I went to the potty, I found it more inconvenient to tear off the paper when the roll is under than when it's over.

So...what do you think? How do you like your toilet paper? Over or Under?

Hmmm, I never even thought about it. Now I have to go look....okay, all of them are over. But I'm tempted to try out the "under" way and see if it's easier!!

Over! I am VERY OCD about the toilet paper thing and I get really pissed if it's under.
