    You grow up and go through your entire life having the toilet paper go a certain way on the roll. Then when you move in with your sweetheart, you happily learn to make adjustments. I've always put the roll on where the paper comes out from the bottom, he puts it on where it comes off over the top. Took me awhile to get use to the roll coming off from the top, but for the past year I haven't given it much thought.

    I figured while he was away on business this last time I would put it back the way I'm use to. Well that worked for all of a half day before I got seriously annoyed and put it back (funny how that works). I told him about it when he came back over the weekend and I got his normal response (point at me, giggle, and harass me in his charming little way about how he is right all the time lol).

    So I get up this morning with my eyes glued shut (I hate it when that happens!) and sit down to do my thing. Trying to get the toilet paper to come off from the top like I've been doing for the last year... and it won't come off lol. I sat there for a minute or two fighting relentlessly with this roll of toilet paper with my eyes glued shut before I realized what happened, and I began laughing out loud. Sometime last night when he was packing to go on another business trip, my charming little geek had put the roll on backwards to torture me.

    I texted him:
    Me: I saw what you did. Brat.
    Him: Hee hee hee!

    Could I possibly love him any more than I do right now? Doubt it.

    So how bout you... are you a top or bottom person? ;)

    I'm an off the top kinda gal. I live alone so am pretty set in my ways and get easily annoyed and confused when I have to adjust to such little things like this! Hate it when it's a bottom mounted roll. lol

    One of my biggest pet peeves is starting a roll of tp. It's mostly the brand I buy (Target store brand). Can't stand it.

    Why not both? One roll over and one under, that way you have all your ... um ... bases ... covered, as it were.

    Depends on whether or not the window is open. One bathroom has a low window, and the TP holder is set into the vanity. If you put the paper so it rolls from the top, damn wind will blow all the TP off the roll.

    Top for me.

    I think one of the TP companies recently did a survey and found that top is the more popular answer, which our poll results seems to be mirroring. :D

    It has to roll from the top or it's backward. Clothes hanging in the closet all face to my right as well. Same sort of deal. If it's not right it's wrong.

    Top because the inside of the toilet paper is rougher that the outside (the part you see).

    When I pull some toilet paper of the roll and fold it, the inside will be showing, and since the inside is rougher than the outside, out makes for a better quality wipe.

    If I took the paper from the bottom, I would have to flip it over before folding it (so the rough side is facing out), which is one extra step in wiping my butt.

    I like how much thought you've given this. Any reason you don't like the soft side for your bum? You know what, forget I asked :D ;) :p

    What if there is no roll and the paper sit on top of the tank? Does it matter?

    What if you just have a stack of napkins from Taco Bell?

    Currently, over the top. When there's a playful puppy or kitten in residence who thinks the roll makes a dandy toy, under does tend to make that a bit more challenging.

    Has to be from the top... Otherwise it is wrong.

    Reading these replies reminds me of abseiling when I was a teen, to find out what hand to use to release the rope...he asked"what hand do you use to wipe your bum with" usually followed with a reply of left or right...."ewwwww don't you user toilet paper like everyone else?" Followed by nervous laughter :)

    Meh, our tp holder broke off the wall a year ago and I still haven't fixed it. Currently, the paper just sits on the window sill, so sideways?

    You fold the TP? I guess I'm barbaric, I pull a bunch off and just ball it up for the wipe...
