I'm not consistent in how I load a roll of toilet paper. Doesn't matter to me.

We've had two and they both are paper hounds. If I leave my pants on the floor he'll turn the pockets inside out looking for tissue, paper towels any paper to eat, little critter ate a $20 one time.

Sorry, but by "fat rolls" I mean all the double and triple rolls that are designed to confuse buyers about what they are getting. They don't fit on the rollers built into the walls that came with the house. You can put the roll on a window sill or the back of the toilet (and hope it does not fall in) until the roll is small enough to fit on the holder. Not a great solution, but at least there is no argument about "over" or "under."

Back in the old days when they sent out the fat Sears Roebuck catalog we didn't need rolls of toilet paper. Some of the pictures were pretty racy to 10 year old boys.

My DF, born in 1917, never cared about over or under back then. His tales were of the catalog and the color of the corn cobs.:confused:

One of the great joys of staying at home in my own house, where I am the only resident, is that everything is the way I like it. That includes the TP over/under status.

Neither. Several of my cats, who are not kittens are TP bandits. TP is kept in the top cabinet drawer next to the toilet. Sometimes I forget to tell a guest before they go in so I have to yell through the door "TP is in the top drawer!".

Why is it a slow news day? Isn't the weather considerably improved most everywhere? Aren't people getting out and doing stuff?

Poll is about toilet paper... if you want to get into such subjects... start your own poll.

Over... but probably should be under. Our dog thinks he's a cat and likes to pull the paper off the roll... and often eats it. We usually keep the bathroom doors mostly closed so we can maintain our all-important over status without finding streams of paper down the hallway.
