Over or under, that is the question.I perfer the toilet tissue to be fixed OVER than under. Why? I don't really know the reason why. Maybe, that's how I grew up with and that's how my Mom fix the toilet tissue in our bathroom, so up to this point in time that's how I want the toilet tissue to be. The funny thing is when I go to my BFs or sister's house or some other houses for that matter, I do notice how their toilet tissue is arranged, although I wanted to fix it the way I am used to, I don't, because it's not my house and who cares anyway, it's just a toilet humor that nobody will appreciate, except OCDs.I hope that made sense.
