Toilet paper roll - Front or back?

Me and my business partner don't see eye to eye on this. My arguement is: The flap must be in the front so it's easier to grab. He says: No, in the back because if it's in front it could hide in the back.

What say you?

Well, according to Ann Landers, Dear Abby, and Heloise, the three of them say the flap should be in the front, AND that by it being in the front, should you have a guest, it is a "sign" that you welcome company in your home.






Go figure...........

Another vote for front...

and you should let the end hand at least an inch lower than the roll so it's
easier to grab.

To be honest....I just smack the roll and let the paper flail out like a party favor. So when the flap is in the back, it''s like I'm winding the roll back up.

I read a study one (yes someone actually paid to do a study on this) that said that it is more economical to do it in the front. Less papaer is used that way as opposed to if it were in the back. Even before I read that I always did it in front. Back just seems wrong.
