What a boring world it would be if we all thought and acted the same huh? I love to see how different we all are. And yet...most of us are bugged by something as teeny as the paper hanging the "wrong" way. LMAO. This is just too funny.

I have to admit that I would be a little irked (or at least confused) if someone turned my toilet paper around in my house. Now, if they run out of paper and put a new roll on I don't care how they put it on. I can always fix it later.

While sitting and staring at our double side-by-side toilet paper holder, taking care of business here at my shop a few moments ago, I couldn't help but notice one roll with the flap on the front and the other one in the back.
Like I said earlier, there's less waste if the flap is in the back. I pay for these rolls.....like almost $50 for a large case.
Just saying...

Because it's my house and things should be the way I want them, not where some visitor thinks they should be. If I put the TP with a back flap and you flip it around for your brief stay, to me, it's the same thing as rearranging anything else in my house. At least Barbara L agrees that it might be "irksome" to have it done to her. Let me add, it's not like I think you're horrid for doing it, it just boggles my mind that people would do any such thing at someone else's house.
