I Need Your Help

Ok, people. If ever there was a time to comment on a blog post, this would be the one. Because I am at the end of my rope. My family is being torn apart like a group of Crusading English Knights attempting to cross the path of a killer bunny. I just can’t take it anymore. Any of it. The yelling, the cursing, the flinging of cardboard toilet paper rolls in anger. Oh yes. Flinging. Of. Cardboard.

You can’t imagine the horror.

Please leave a comment letting my entire family know which picture demonstrates the CORRECT way to place a toilet paper roll on the dispenser thingy. Before I kill someone.

tp, toilet paper, toilet paper dispenser

Picture 1 - or what I call the RIGHT way.

toilet paper roll, tp, toilet paper dispenser

Picture 2 - otherwise known as the WRONG way.

Please cast your vote for the first either one of the above pictures. Majority rules, so whichever photo receives the most votes by the end of this week will decide the fate of every future toilet paper roll to grace the dispenser thingy in my bathroom.

Yes, I will honour the law of the blogosphere.

Even if it is the wrong way.*Please don’t make me put toilet paper on the wrong way for the rest of my life.*

Thank you.

    I say #2, with a reason. We have a cat. His name is Seamus. He’s 20-ish pounds of sleeping, grunting, snuggling fury who occasionally takes it in his head to treadmill 8-10 feet of toiletpaper into a big fluffy pile. Usually when the bathroom door is ajar and his favorite toy is on the wrong side of the sticky door. he just grabs our freestanding paperholder and goes to town. So if it is hung as in #2, all he does is twirl it rather than unspooling it.

    What does it mean that the blog post that attracts the most comments in recent memory is about the directionality of toilet paper? I vote for #2. I don’t have a great argument for it, I just feel #1 is too bold. It looks too perfect, and is too conventional, too white. It is the Mitt Romney of toilet paper, and while it may win the election, it will never win my heart.

  • Way to work that, girlfriend.

  • Welcome Supernova! I feel the same as you, but apparently not everyone shares our superior intelligence πŸ™‚

  • You know, in some States, that’s grounds for divorce. Not that I’m suggesting you divorce over toilet paper. Just putting it out there. πŸ™‚

  • I like your husband. Wanna trade? πŸ™‚

  • Hmmmm. I’m curious. A lot of people have been justifying picture 2 with the cat reason. What if you didn’t have a cat? The question isn’t “which is the correct way to hang a toilet paper roll if you have a cat?” but which way is the correct way to hang a toilet paper roll. No cat in the equation. Does your answer change then?

  • No no no no!

    It’s not a question of right or wrong. It’s a question of On or Off. Either there’s toilet paper or there isn’t.

    I was almost inspired to write a post about it but then I saw that Dufus’s diagram illustrated exactly what I was thinking.

  • I’d like to think this post’s popularity is not due to the subject matter, but is due to the skill and talent of the person who wrote it and her ability to emotionally connect with her readers. Or they just feel really sorry for me. Whatever.

    Now, how can the first picture be too bold, yet too white. Tell the truth, you hang the roll whichever way Kerry tells you to, don’t you? πŸ™‚

    It’s true. She insists that we hang like you want to hang it. And so we do, because I love her. And fear her. Mostly fear her.

  • You’ve got too many demerits already young lady, believe me, I know.

  • No. It’s not a question of on or off. There should always be toilet paper on the dispenser. What is WRONG with you? πŸ™‚

  • I think Kerry needs to start a blog πŸ™‚

  • Yes, Mom. πŸ™‚

  • #1, no question about it. We have cats, but the cats know that toilet paper is for people, not for cats. But I guess not everyone’s cats are as smart as mine. My cats simply can’t be stupid when I’m around, my intelligence is contagious.

  • I just got smarter reading your comment. πŸ™‚
