I try to tell my husband and kids, "If it's out, replace it with a new one." Nope. It never happens. I've literally gone into our bathroom to see an empty roll with a new one sitting on TOP of it. I swear I heard my husband laugh from the other room.
Our five year old daughter will change it every once in a while but she usually puts it on upside down.
This actually led to a survey question on our facebook page...
Do you face your toilet paper roll up or down and why? The responses were quite funny:
Erin L. wrote: Over so the dogs can't get it and pull it all over the place.
Julianna M. wrote: I grew up with it under, and that's the best way to avoid kitty paws and little kids strewing it everywhere.... However.... In the interest of marital harmony, I have begrudgingly trained myself to place it over. I hate it over. Passionately. But it's not worth fighting about, and I have some MUCH larger battles...
Jamie M. wrote: Over....no other way. I have even changed it in other places....like at my parents' house.
Stephanie B. wrote: In this house, definitely under. Why? If we didn't it would all end up on the floor from curious little hands of things 1 and 2.
Mary Ann B. wrote: Do you mean over or under? I place it to roll over. Why? Because that's the right way. ;) My family on the other hand just places the new roll on top of the empty roll if they even bother to get out a new roll.
...and my husband's personal favorite...
Craig W. wrote: I put it the exact opposite of what it was......this way if my wife had it the way she wanted...she'll be like "WTF happened to the roll" hehe
At this point I don't care which way it goes, as long as it's on. It might be a long time from now until that day comes, but until then, a girl can dream...
