We’ve all been there before. Sitting on the toilet at your friend’s house, an unfamiliar layout just trying to finish your afternoon glory. Suddenly you look down to grab a piece of toilet paper and BOOM! The roll’s going the wrong way. You start thinking to yourself, am I putting the roll on wrong, or is Timmy’s mom a moron? So let’s ask the great question that’s long been debated: Should toilet paper go over or under the roll?
First, let’s consider folding under the roll. I’m not sure where or when it was dubbed as the “classy” way to put your TP on the roll but it seems like every rich person has screamed at their house keeper for not putting it on with the feed coming from the bottom. The issue here is exactly that… You’re reaching under the roll just to grab the first piece. It’s an unnecessary pain in the ass just to wipe it in the first place. Even if you resorted to manually rotating the roll by hand, now the fresh sheets are nearly hitting the ground before you can even see them. This might be the most unconventional way to wipe your ass and yet it seems half of the time you reach for TP the roll is oriented this way. Just dispicable.
When I wipe my ass I like to wipe with efficiency, and that’s exactly what you get when you flip the toilet paper feed over the top of the roll. Why is this better? Because it’s easier to grab the new sheets from the top looking down. Unless your toilet paper dispenser is at shoulder height, which would make you a psychopath, then folding the paper underneath makes ZERO sense. You’re reaching down to the roll, so the top is easiest to grab and therefore the spot where the paper should fold over the roll. This isn’t the peasant’s way of wiping I mean trust me, there’s no “classy” way to wipe shit out of your asshole. So sorry to all you rich folks, but the only way a toilet paper roll should be put on is with the sheet going over the top. No if ands or buttholes. P.S. if you have a bidet then why are you even on this site?
