I was always a "from the back" kinda guy (HEY! no jokes!). My girlfriend always seems to reload it in an "over the top" position.

Hey. Who am I to argue. I can almost always figure it out.

LOL

i take the way my tp is put onto the roll very seriously, lol. i like it to roll from the top. it has to roll from the top.
Me too! On the rare occasion that my husband puts a roll on if he has put it on so that it comes out from underneath, I have to fix it.

Non-cat-owners probably wonder what you are talking about, but I know only too well! Most of my cats have never given me a problem with this, but I had a couple who drove me nuts for a few weeks!

Over the top please.

Paul and I went camping a few years ago and stopped at a ranger station. There was a little phamlet telling how to behave in the woods. One of their ideas was to leave the toilet paper and home and use a STICK or a ROCK instead. You should have heard us laughing. A ROCK!!! OR a STICK!!! For heavens sake, how would that work?????

lol, barb, i have been in hole-in-the-wall restaurants and bars that don't use those huge tp dispensers and i'll flip the roll around if it's turned the wrong way. only place i won't turn it is in someone's home. that would just be wrong, lol, but i've wanted to before.
and those cats and the toilet paper, lol, they love to shred the 'ol tp! even though we have 7 cats, they haven't clawed the toilet paper for a long time. they have gotten into the paper towels, though.

From the top. I have a strange obsession with this and will 'fix' rolls that are put on incorrectly. You would think I would have better things to think about.

I agree with Crewsk. I have tried it both ways and find it is easier to find it coming from the top.
