Backwards/upside down TP is just wrong!

Over the top, always.

Exactly! Otherwise you tug on it and the whole roll unravels. *shudders* It seriously creeps me out. I had a traumatizing childhood.

I just do not like having to touch the whole roll to find the part to pull on. And when you do find it (when it is on the roll backwards) it is leaning on the wall. Why do I want my TP scraping against my wall?


For the record, and for all you coffee snobs - I have tried to buy Mr. AB good coffee more than once. On the rare occasion he goes shopping with me I ask him to pick out some coffee that he likes, and he always picks out something similar to what I buy.

AB hey I make no excuse for it. I grew up in the pacific northwest where becoming a coffee connoisseur was a normal part of childhood. When I moved to the midwest and found out all the local grocery stocked was Maxwell House, Folgers, and instant, I freaked out and had to go on a quest to find coffee that was drinkable to me. I was about ready to move back! Like I said, I'm not fussy about many things. But this is one I'm a stickler about.

And I HATE french roast. With a passion. I don't see anything desirable about it. Give me some columbian, ethiopian, or italian coffee any day and I'm a happy girl. But that charred, oily french stuff is just disgusting.

I love me some good coffee. When I have the cash, I will splurge. Right now...were lucky we can keep the Folgers coming. I like their brazilian.

I adore Sumatran coffee. We have it at work, so at least I get some decent coffee during the week.

On the weekends, it's back to the Wally World crap in a cup.

TP roll goes OVER the top! Anything else is just barbaric!

Mr. AB usually gets either Wegmans Breakfast blend or something comparable in the Great Value brand.

I did buy a small container of whatever brand comes in the red plastic containers just to get the container.

Yes, really.

I had borrowed a horse from a friend to keep mine company while BF was at the trainers. When I asked what he ate they showed me using one of those containers. So after stopping at the feed store to get the right feed I stopped at the grocery store to buy the coffee so I had the same 'scoop'.

If you do not have a set way for it to be installed, how do you know which direction to spin it in the dark while you are trying to not wake up anymore than you have to and you can not find the end of the roll?
