    I always load the dispenser so that the toilet paper goes over top of the roll. At work, I get annoyed when people load it so that the paper goes under the roll. It means I have to reach further, which means that I have to work harder. I don't like that.

    So, how do you load the toilet paper on the dispenser?

    Over the top. My husband loads it so that it dispenses from the bottom. I buy the softest toilet paper I can find so it clings to itself which makes it especially hard to find where the end is. Add to that the rather large, wooden, solid despenser, and I spend 5 minutes trying to get out of the bathroom.:rolleyes: I change it every time. Maybe that's why, lately, he hasn't even been replacing it. I'm not complaining!:p

    Under the bottom, easier to dispense, especially in tight quarters.

    funny this thread should pop up, because i just left the bathroom at work grumbling that someone had loaded the TP incorrectly. :p

    over the top for me...it just makes sense.

    Just like Sylvester Stallone - OVER THE TOP! Anything else would be...uncivilized.

    Always over the top. For the folks voting under, why would you want it that way?

    Count me in the over-the-top group. I really don't see why anyone would load it the other way. Although, perhaps we should all just switch to sideways. :)

    I rarely even put it on the roll but I prefer under. Easier to dispense.

    no option for corn cobs? ;)

    Under the roll, for me. Yes, I will take the roll off and change it, if it's on "wrong".

    Looking at the poll so far, it looks like you're wrong. :D

    I also take the roll off and change it if it's on "wrong". At work, it seems like every other time a new roll is put on, it's backwards, so I change it to the "correct" way. I'm in a toilet paper roll battle with someone in the office... who can it be?

    Why is this even a question here?

    Over the top. That way if you yank too hard in straining, stressful moments it doesn't pool on the floor.

    Under. Sometimes over. Usually under.

    I don't know why. Probably depends on the phase of the moon..

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who rarely puts it on the roll....I'm lazy and just leave it on the top of the toilet tank :D

    I do prefer over though, sometimes when it's under and you pull it towards you, it gets caught on the roll and rips before you get the amount you want

    It just feels right...like everything is good in the world.
    But when it's under...things get so confusing, I get disorientated and start to wonder if there's a purpose to life.

    Over the top is the only acceptable way to do it.

    Over the top, so when you flick it, the end pops up just out of convenience. I hate it when my husband loads it from the bottom. He's left handed too, to he's generally backwards :p

    81% prefer over the top. I wonder haw this compares to a world wide poll. do some cultures prefer under instead of over? we need to get our best scientists on this now!

    The correct way...over the top, of course!

    Fun tip:
    Mount a TP roll on a yard blower to dispense a LOT of TP in a short amount of time.

    I saw some neighborhood punks completely TP a front yard in a about 30 seconds. The minimal time spent was impressive. Perhaps they will be process auditors someday.

    Sly doesn't use TP, he uses the Three Shells. Just don't ask him how they work.
