This topic is extremely minor compared to almost everything else I’ve read (obsessively) on E-Hell, but I figured it’s worth raising anyway. A recent Facebook post that was making the rounds had a picture of two toilet paper rolls. Roll A had the toilet paper feeding from underneath/behind the roll, and Roll B had the toilet paper feeding from over/in front of the roll. The caption asked people to comment which is correct. What struck me was how many people wrote something along the lines of “Roll B—and if I’m in someone’s house and they have it like Roll A, I’ll change it.” A few questions: Is it rude to flip other people’s t.p. rolls? Have you ever done it (confession time!)? Have you ever made other changes in someone else’s home without their solicitation or permission? And (why not?) Roll A or Roll B? 0122-14
“My house, my rules” so changing the way the toilet paper roll hangs to suit your own preferences while in someone else’s home is rather presumptuous and petty. Good heavens, are there people in this world so arrogantly afflicted with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder that a few seconds of having to deal with a toilet paper roll hung in a manner they don’t agree with is enough to waste time changing it?
