    But sometimes, that is exactly what is needed! Really, no one can throw out the cardboard toilet paper roll??

    I'm pretty sure I've never posted on the Internet a pic I snapped in my bathroom...

    It seems (according to what I've heard), the way you hang the roll indicates you're a neat person.

    Posting an innocent pikkie like that can sometimes reveal. Or maybe someone else in the family is neat? o_Oo_O
    Anyone have to line up for inspection before leaving the house .... Sarge?

    I find it way more disturbing that the roll is completely wrong-sided! Soulless ghouls!!!!

    Well it solves the problem if the paper should be in the front or the back if the roll.

    I like it in front, but I have heard/read that if you have toddlers in the house, it should roll from the back. When those little kids, unsupervised, find their way in the bathroom, they're gonna roll the toilet paper. It's fun! A whole roll onto the floor!

    Don't let them label you. If you were a drill sergeant, they wouldn't dare do that.

    ------

    Fun fact - I have a 6 year old that loves to watch Gomer Pyle. U.S.M.C. reruns. One day he looked at me with a twinkle in his eye and told me me to call him "private" and yell at him. He lovingly referred to me as DI (drill instructor) instead of dad. When he walked down the road with his Grandpa that evening, whenever a car came along he yelled "attention" and stood at the side of the road and saluted the drivers.

    There's still some perfectly good toilet paper attached to it!

    Life is too short to worry about which way the roll is situated on the hanger. I am just thankful there is toilet paper in the bathroom.

    My wife does the same thing. However, compared to wife #1, the wife from hell, she's an angel. Whenever I've purchased a guitar or saxophone, there's never been a negative word from her. Nor is she a jealous woman as wife #1 was. Her one bad habit is cigarette smoking. No smoking in the house or pickup though. Right now, she's out in her heated 'she-shed' with her iPad.

    We're into our 17th year together. She never had children. My adult children and her get along fine. She rarely spends money and is quite the saver. Her wardrobe is from Walmart or Value Village. She likes good quality sneakers/runners though. She likes camping and fishing and could live in a cabin in the woods without electricity if need be, as could I. Hmmm. Well, we do like our internet and satellite TV.

    Nope, I say nothing when the toilet paper roll is left on the toilet paper holder. I've seen the other side and it was not pretty. I love this woman.
