Living in a House Divided: Over or Under?
September is the kick off of football season? Yeah, that's a question and I truly don't care about the answer but many of my friends are in a football CRAZE right now.
My friend Christine is obsessed with football, so “over” and “under” apparently have different meanings in their house. In our house, it's PUT THE TOILET PAPER ON THE ROLL CORRECTLY – meaning over.
Rachel thinks the rolls should go under, and the girls really don't care as long as it's Charmin… though it'd be nice if they'd put the toilet paper on the roll in the first place. I threatened to buy the cheap stuff if they don't start putting it on the roll. Funny how quickly they changed their ways. Gracelynn is dead set on only using Charmin Ultra Strong, while the others tend to like Charmin Ultra Soft.
What does this mean? Grace sneaks into our bathroom, or switches the rolls out because apparently she's that concerned about toilet paper. Can't really blame her. Charmin Ultra Strong cleans better than the leading bargain brand, which means you can use up to 4x less!
Over or Under?
When we can't solve a debate in our house, I always take it to Facebook. You really came through for me, guys.
Out of 70+ comments, about 40 said the toilet paper roll should go “over” like it is in my bathroom.
About 30 said they didn't care as long as it ended up on the holder!
A few random folks said “under”, but we know they're wrong so we won't count them in our research. ;)
One of my readers left this picture to solve the entire debate. So, there you have it.
It seems if you have a cat or a toddler, though, UNDER is the proper way. If not, you're gonna have a pile of toilet paper on the floor. Now that doesn't solve anything!
Seriously though, regardless of if you're Team Over or Team Under (or Team Put the Seat Down), Charmin always provides a better bathroom experience.
