We talk about all kinds of meaningless crap in The Lounge - why not this?

Everytime that the douche bag cleaning people come into our office and put in new toilet paper rolls, they place them so they dispense/roll from the bottom. It bugs the hell out of me, especially at a critical time. At home, the roll dispenses from the top. Virtually any household I've ever been to has the toilet paper dispense from the top of the roll.

Does this irk you as well?

Funny you should bring this up... I was just talking to my friend 5 minutes ago about toilet paper. I took my goddaughter to the bathroom at a diner once... I layered the seat completely three times (I know, overkill), and I went to pick her up and put her down on the seat when I realized, she only has a 4-inch wide butt LOL

My TP dispenses from the top at home. Anywhere out that has those monstrosity-sized dispensers always seems to come from the bottom, in which I end up ripping it after 1 thin square. And no, I haven't a square to spare.

Hmmm...got to translate...by 'Over' do you mean from the front--'B' in the diagram---and by 'Under' do you mean from the back--'A' in the diagram?

If so, I prefer from the back ('A'). I think the reason it's done that way is to conserve use (pulling from the back usually results in less pulled off than from the front.)

From the front also makes it too easy for pets to grab some and make a mess...

we actually discussed this in the past. and i was wrong.

Well, it's one of those important issues that come up from time to time...lately, though, I don't even bother putting TP on a holder...I just keep 1/2 dozen rolls on top of the tank and roll off what I need, and a 24 pack in the closet.

Cuticle, sounds like you may have some sort of problem. Seen a doc?

Perhaps it is time to invent that "toilet paper dispenser on a backpack" you've been thinking abote. :scratchchin:

Nah, I'm just lazy about putting the TP back on the holder--it's one w/ a spring and a pain to change out.. :)

  • The Jeep Gladitator gets a gentle refresh for 2024

    Jeep is understandably reluctant to mess with success, and the Jeep Gladiator has been one of the brand's greatest success stories in the last decade.  So when it came time to give the Gladiator a nip-tuck, Jeep went in with the gentlest of hands. The biggest visual update is a refresh of Jeep's iconic 7-slot grille, windshield-integrated trail-ready stealth antenna, and seven all-new wheel designs. Inside is a redefined interior with more technology and amenities, including available 12-wa


    GMC Upsizes the Acadia for 2024; New 2.5L Turbo-4

    GMC caused a stir in 2016 when it downsized the Acadia in 2017 from its previous near-Yukon length. That downsize brought the Acadia down to be inline in size with the contemporary Jeep Grand Cherokee.  In the years since, the Grand Cherokee has grown and GMC is matching that with the 2024 GMC Acadia. Inches matter in this class and in that the Acadia gains (back) 10.6 inches in length and 3.2 inches in height. That equates to 80% more space behind the third row and 36% more space behind th


    Cadillac Refreshes the CT5 with an Updated Look for 2025

    Today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Cadillac unveiled the refreshed Cadillac CT5 sedan.  CT5 retail sales have been on an upswing of late, increasing over 35%.  In a time when sedan sales are stagnating or disappearing entirely, Cadillac's positive numbers have given hope that the luxury sedan market isn't quite dead yet. The refresh of the CT5 begins with the exterior. A new larger, bolder grille is flanked by new vertically stacked headlamps and Cadillac's sign
