to me it doesn't really matter, but my hubby has to have it in the front. I change it to the back,just to be a pain in the *** and I don't mean once. He'll have it to the front, I'll change it to the back, the next time he goes in he changes it again, then I change it again. The first time I did it that went on the whole day before he realized what was happening

My reasoning for the back is, when i tear it from the front, it keeps on rolling, so i have to 'reroll' it back, but when i tear it from the back, doesnt happen.

And about kittens, kids ... I had a pet prairie dog ( like a big fat chipmunk, size of a football). Anyway, on the rare occasions she would escape, she went straight for the bathroom, filled her cheeks with a mouth full of toilet paper ( still conencted to the roll, i might add) and would make her way back to her cage. I would come home to this ' paper trail' leading from the bathroom to her cage. That wasnt too bad, but when i saw my shirts, socks, ties .... in the cage aswell, it wasnt too funny anymore. I guess thats why mom always yelled at me to put my clothes in the haper

You need to work on your "snap" action. You need to be quick and precise like......like Bruce Lee.

My mom always did it the other way.

I'm a two hander.... I spin with one, stop the roll and tear with the other, leaving the roll precisely positioned for next time.
And I'm in the, I would never dream of rearranging anything, even the TP, in someone else's house, category. Even if their way is wrong.
