Which way do you put the T.P?

Ok. I had a friend here the other day – and Just as they got here I realized the toilet paper in our main bathroom (the one my husband regularly uses) was out.  So I ran in there to change the roll really quick because I didn’t want her son (who’s 3 1/2 and fully potty trained) to get confused about where to find the toilet paper.

Anyway. I must have done the same thing the last time they came over, because my husband commented on it today.  Here’s our conversation:

Joe: Kari must have replaced the toilet paper roll again?
Amy: What? Why do you say that?
Joe: Well she did it last time too – she puts it on backwards!
Amy: What do you mean backwards?!
Joe: Well Its supposed to go like where when Andrew is unrolling the toilet paper(showing with his hands unraveling TP roll like only a toddler would do) then it unrolls easily…
Amy: Like at the hotels where they fold the last piece of TP?
Joe: yeah. that’s how its supposed to go. It’s supposed to be easy to get off the roll.
Amy: Why?? *dumbfounded because TP is just easy to me and I don’t really think too much about the direction it is in…*
Joe: Well.. it’s just easier that way.. like if I have to blow my nose, I don’t want to have to bend over to get the TP off.. I just want it to roll off.
Amy: wow. Ok. Well, I did it! Never knew there was a right and wrong way!

So: What way do you put your TP on??



or Backwards?



  1. Lol..I have to laugh at this because I never cared until I was pregnant and got up in the middle of the night half asleep. When I grabbed for the TP..I couldn't find the end!!! Well being pregnant this really got me mad. Ever since then I always make sure the TP is FORWARDS! : ) Great post!

  2. I'm an "under" (or backwards)

  3. Hahaha--Forward is easier to find!

  4. Over. Forward. makes life easier :)

  5. LOL! I don't pay any attention! I guess whichever way it is pointing when I put it on!

  6. It is more important that the paper is there in the first place. That being said, it should go over. Now, about the toilet seat cover...

  7. Forward for sure. I call that position "over".
