Your Turn

I asked this question many years ago, but I recently ran into the same problem so thought I would revisit it. You are at a friend's house and notice their toilet paper is on the roll opposite to what you prefer. Would you change it to your preferred way?

It's not your job (I love these life changing crucial decision making questions)

Marlo said...

LMAO - I change the toilet paper into my preferred direction 99% of the time. I thought I was the only nutter.
Good to know there are other obsessive compulsive headcases out there.

You fix the ads on your site. please stop infecting your readers with viruses or you won't have any traffic to get ad revenue from.

JustReading said...

Not at someone else's house, no. Where does it end- you reorganize their kitchen cabinets & underwear drawer? Not cool.

Be glad there's paper left on the roll. Leave it the way they want it. You're a guest.

JustReading said...

The more of these questions I see, the more I hope I never run into whoever writes them. Socially stunted is putting it mildly. Raised by wolves is a possibility.

No because I don't have control issues.

Simon said...

Umm, no

Everyone who is having a problem with aggressive ads and pop-ups, try installing adblock plus. I do not work for them, but I have used it for a while on my pc. I never have a problem on this site. I know this site probably needs the ad cash, but they need to find better advertisers, less aggressive ones at least. it ruins the entire site.
I hope I’m not breaking any rules but here is the link:

Bloody hell, are you uptight or what? It's just a outlet paper roll, he's not changing the name of their first born. Jeez.

I this k some people have trouble loading adblock or other scanners on phones and tablets be cause of the settings.I still get ads on the tablet even using the adblock browser,but not the malware. So far.

Wildguess said...

In this example, in someone else's home, you're being disrespectful to the host to rearrange anything. We are all capable of going through life indulging our OCD impulses privately, without being rude to others. I think your behavior says more about wanting to be in control than it does about OCD.

Depends on how stoned/ drunk i am ;-)

AndrewBW said...

That depends. If I knew it was someone who REALLY had a fetish for how the TP goes on the roller I might change it, just to annoy them.

Hot Cola said...

Hey! Why isult wolves? They are very socialy smart animals!
Maybe raise by Lemings

Why not shit in the shower, or pee in the basin, or vice versa now that you are in the mood?

david said...

No.
I truly don't care how the TP spills off the roll.

But I do check their cabinets/drawers to see if what they have in them.

Just curious.

=)

I'd definitely change it - obviously they put it up the wrong way and I'm only helping out. I know this is strange but I can't help it.

NoNotThatBeth said...

I would not change it:
1.Their house, their rules. That would be the same as changing the radio station in their car when they are driving me somewhere. Not the way I was raised.
2. Probably wouldn't notice as I would just be darned happy it was on there at all.

Lisa said...

If it ran out, I'd put the new one on my way, but I'd leave alone otherwise. Actually, I've been known to put it on 'wrong' when I've refilled at someone's house just so it's how they're used to it.

RenShaw said...

Never been a TP direction debater but the five minutes or less I'm in there, I would be more worried about the availability to air refreshers for before and after.

RenShaw said...

I never developed an interest in the direction. I checked into the debate only to discover it absolutely makes no difference, except for the OCD types.

Former CNN Anchor Candy Crowley said...

I always carry my own TP. Your gal Candy isn't getting stuck wiping with sandpaper like cheap s**t people buy at Costco.

I also carry flushable wipes. Mint scented.

OKay said...

I'm a bit OCD, so I don't love it. But change it? Are you out of your mind??? Some lines should not be crossed. And I swear to god if anybody did that to me in my house, I'd hunt them down...

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Is this some kind of Rorschach test trap?

My answer is, "no."

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Agreed. I don't like people crossing lines touching my things too much (to the point that sometimes I'll even buy things like tarot cards FOR my friends to touch if I don't let them touch my collection—which I treat like proper art objects that I do not touch/use).

Also, I tend to bring my own wetty toilet paper anyway (in Asia, we're not used to dry toilet paper, we think it's gross). One of the FAQ I got when I was the "new girl from America" from local students was, "do Americans really wipe their asses with just tissue without wetting it? Doesn't the shit dry up in their butt cracks?" LMAO. Also, they think it's gross that anyone would sit in a bathtub of water containing their own dirt/body oils/dead skin cells (instead of standing under running water).

Farmgirl said...

I always change it. What if I have to go again??

Scorpiotina said...

When my daughter and her husband moved into their 1st apartment, her mother-in-law was the first one to use the bathroom. I went in later and saw that the tp was coming out from the back. I thought right then "she's one of those people". And she is. . .

Humble people don't make waves.

I thought last time everybody said, "I just use the cat"

SgH said...

No way. It's not my place, so that's not my place.

just sayin\' said...

ok, if this REALLY matters to you, change the direction while you use it but put it back afterward. or as an exercise in maturity and good mental health, tough it out and use it the "wrong" way.

i use "adblock plus", "removes taboola" and "ublock origin" together on chrome and get no ads at all.
