What are your thoughts on this?
I found this in one of our bathrooms today... hmmmmm.... And it's not the first time! Why don't people just put the roll on the dispenser? Your thoughts? (Not sure how to categorize this question - family, health, social issues [lol]?)
If the paper is not on the dispenser, it could easily get knocked to the ground - especially in a cozy bathroom with minimal elbow room ( I have had this happen). I am pretty sure no one wants to use toilet paper after it has fallen on the ground....I don't think the 5 second rule applies here. Please put it on the dispenser....it should always be on the dispenser!
I had to laugh when I saw this, because I do this sometimes, but then later on I will fix it. It is true, that if it falls on the floor, no one would want to use it!
1. maybe too lazy
2. maybe they can't roll the toilet paper easily where it is so they rather just have it like so.
3. maybe it just runs out to fast so rather just leave it like that
This anoys me too! OMG!
Also, I prefer the end of the roll to go under the roll and not over it. Under irratates me too. I seem to be among a minority who prefer it this way other than the "cat fancy" group.
I admit I am sometimes guilty of this, although most of the time it's on the counter not the dispenser. Why? Because my boys use less when it's like this. We go through WAY too much toilet paper around here! And my 1 yr old can't fight the temptation to pull it when it's on the dispenser....
Men! Only men would do something like that....... I will leave the 'Why' to you to decide.
1. too lazy to be bothered putting it on the rack.
2. in a hurry to get where they are going and don't want to waste time putting it where it needs to go.
3. couldn't find the instructions on how to put it all together.
4. too tight to the wall when new and needs to be used a bit more before putting it on rack
5. just too too lazy
Laziness is all it it. It takes what? 2 seconds to put it on the dispenser.
I've always attributed this situation to believing there's someone in the family with bad eye/hand coordination and therefore too frightened of failure to even attempt putting the toilet paper on the holder!
I have a different take on this. Our bathroom is fairly small in the area where the toilet is mounted. So we actually did not have a dispenser put in when we remodeled. My husband is a big man and it is very difficult for him to reach it if it is mounted on the cabinet next to the toilet.
We leave it free and setting on the counter next to the toilet. We could get one of those free standing dispensers, just haven't done it.
But in the overall scheme of things in life, is it really that big of a deal?
Strange way to display.
Likely to be in a hurry and no time to figure out how to put it properly.
That is one of the fastest way leaving it on it I guess.
Ha! That is a great photo and question. But really, I much prefer this scenario to the one with no paper at all, or one tiny square left on the roll so the person doesn't feel like it needs changing.
Someone below mentioned paper out or paper in-- I used to change the direction at my grandmother's house, and she would change it back. We never mentioned it, but it was kind of a funny joke.
yeah I know. I much prefer having something to wipe your ass with, than having to look around for some alternative because someone forgot to place toilet paper in the room altogether. As long as its in the room near to the toilet, who really cares.
Think about it. It is rather unsanitary to handle a roll of toilet paper before having had the opportunity to wash your hands.and it should be possible for whoever takes the last pieces of a roll of toilet paper to be the one to put the next roll on the toilet paper holder. This is a matter of hygiene more than anything else.
May be they don't use it and clean it Indian style you know with water and hands.
'Sadly' the answer is waaaay too simple, people are usually tooooo lazy to put the roll onto the dispenser. It is okay a few times, but gets really annoying for the 100th time.
It gets on my nerves when my girlfriend does not put the TP on the roller. Additionally, I don't get why there are arguments over leaving the toilet seat up... if I put it down with the lid down, too, it takes the same amount of effort to lift the lid as it does to put the seat back down. However, there is no ensuing argument that follows all the sweat that was put into lifting the lid.
No doubt remains that it is a guy thing to leave the TP on the roller, not women, as my opening line was a joke!
BUTT... I think the argument over this particular trait of males that leads to domestic violence is about as illogical as arguing over the aforementioned lid scenario, although I think I made a valid point. Ladies, would it kill you to understand a man's pragmatism and just see that it does not really make a difference... just nag if you want, but if you ask me... that is a whole lot bigger problem than just getting the fact that you probably wipe your butt differently than men, whose technique is acquired by wadding paper into a ball and dashing the stripe, whereas a peculiar folding technique may make the deed feel prettier when we are doing what we do, when when come to the point where downloading a file is to occur. If you ask me, its not a variety of paperwork that should be micromanaged, as it stands that none of us will be leaving a stack of it on our husbands or wives desks for her to clean... that, if I may, would be something worth arguing over... but if you want a happy life regarding "potty time," I would suggest putting a lid on it.
Someone should just replace the roll and dispose of the used up tube.
Laziness! That's really all it is. however...I have done this before so I can't really harp on the perpetrator!
Gee...that happens in my home too! Hmmm, if I had to guess then I'd say laziness. Teach people a lesson and when there is no toilet paper in the bathroom and they ask, simply say you take it with you when you leave the bathroom because they don't put it where it should go. Eventually, they'll get the family order down pact!
My first thought was how did you get a picture of my bathroom! It seems the roll in my bathroom is always either on top the dispenser or on the back of the toilet.
The ironic thing in my home is that my significant other is often the culprit. Then again, she always says that she is a tomboy.
Anyways, I believe this often happens as a result of being in too big of a hurry to exit the bathroom. Lazy may also factor into the equation.
My first reaction would be to pose the question, "what is my husband doing in your bathroom?"
Come to think of it, he did come home late last Friday night... hey wait a minute! Somebody better explain things awfully fast.
I think that each time the person does this you should remove the toilet roll just out of reach.
They couldn't decide whether it goes over or under. So they went for the easy way out.
Haha! This is a great photo, and the situation is one I have come across many times. I think it stems from pure laziness and a sense that someone else will come along and clean up the mess.
Thank you for sharing this very important question. This was a common problem living with 4 males in the home. I even had a family meeting and gave instructions on how to change the roll. Their response was a blank look as if to say, "I don't understand. What are you talking about?" Oh! In case there is confusion, the paper rolls over, not under.
easy... take all the toilet paper away.
leave an empty roll.. and wait..
i have international couch surfers stay with me often... last time was 6 at once. and this was always a nuisance.. cept they couldnt sit it on the holder like that.. they sat it on the top of the toilet or the floor.. so, i took all the rolls away, left one empty on the holder and next person who needed it had to yell for loo paper or buy their own.. after a few days, everyone who was staying made sure the roll was always full.
another one is to leave just one piece on the roll... leave it sitting on the floor slightly out of reach for someone to use it. and no spares
you could also put a note on the wall above it..
if ya can't replace the bog roll.. find another bog!
I find it annoying and lazy. Take that extra 2 seconds to completely replace the toilet paper. My fiance puts the toilet paper on top of the tank. Just replace it!
I've seen this so many times in so many toilets including mine. Few occasions I also found grounded ones..... very much annoying.... I can't understand, why do people do that.... Why don't people have time to put it on dispenser...... Sometimes I feel, they don't know how to put it on or they don't bother about it at all...

Which way should a toilet paper roll be put "on"? Over the top? From the bottom? Does it matter?Some say, that the way a person treats his or her toilet paper roll, explains a lot about their personality. I for one, insist on going over the "top", and will even...

How do I prevent my sons from using up a roll of toilet paper on just 2-3 visits to the toilet?I have a 6 and a 8 year olds son, who uses more toilet paper that any adult. There had been several blockages because of the amount of toilet paper they use.

Have you ever heard of a brand of toilet paper called Mama Love 555?The first place that I've ever seen this type of toilet paper was at a Motel 6 in Bakersfield, California, and since then I've never seen it in stores or anywhere else.

Facing out. I fought it for a long time, but now I like it that way.

Do you hang your toilet paper over or under?
