OCD Over TP

I was taught a long time ago to “pick my battles” with people that you love and often times certain things just aren’t worth fighting over.

I’ve come to the conclusion that my wife has Obsessive Compulsion Disorder over Toilet Paper (OCD over TP).

I’m the type of guy that really doesn’t care where my toilet paper is sitting or how it’s sitting on the roll, just as long as there is toilet paper there.

I don’t know why this site above sets her off so much.  I can literally hear her screaming at herself (me) about why she has to be the one putting the TP on the roll all the time.

Another thing that irks me a bit, is why is there such a fuss over which way the TP actually sits on the roll?

Everyone says that this is the correct way because if the toilet paper had print on it… then the print could be seen.

I’ve heard others argue that it should be like this:

I find it funny when I arrive at a hotel room and their is a toilet paper roll there and it has the edges folded like this:

I don’t get it?  Is the hotel trying to tell us something?

And what is the deal with putting flowery print on something that your just gonna wipe your butt with?  I understand that it’s to make your bathroom prettier and all, but folks… your wiping your ass with it!

Don’t even get me started on SCENTED TOILET PAPER!

  1. Did you know that there’s a Toilet Paper Debate Poll on Facebook where 118973 votes have been cast for over or under? LOL

  2. Well its on the holder and over the top then – or you’re going to have to listen to your wife bitching for the rest of your life. Does that settle it? (Hey, she gave me ten bucks to write this!)
