It never really mattered to me, either way, but after 52 years of marriage, DW has taught me the foolishness of my ways and "suggested"
that it should be Over. [emoticon]

Over is best because after big argument with wife you roll up nice couple hundred bucks in there an note written on the TP 'I'm sorry Honey'.

Or if argument goes on and on you can write 'you stinker' and it will roll out nicely in the over fashion.

I mean with only 2 real options, a person is either right or wrong! Not alot of wiggle room here and frankly I'm concerned this may need to be changed or rectified prior to moving the camper, and I have to do that Thursday and it will be dark and I'll be driving up a steep washboard road, and, well, I just don't want to have any issues.

You need a TP holder like this (made from a horse bit):

Good luck, BTW.[emoticon]

No matter which way you install the roll, it still spools off the top of the roll. LOL.
Yep, really, it does.

A better question would be:

front or back

I vote FRONT.

I heard on the radio that they did a study on this and apparently if you go one way you are a pessimist and if you go the other way you are a optimist.

I can't remember which way is which though. I will try and look it up.

Edit: I found this but, I am still looking : In the Toilet Paper Personality Test, 2000 people were surveyed on which way they roll their toilet paper, and on how assertive they are in their relationships on a scale of 1 to 10. The results revealed that those “who roll over are more dominant than those who roll under,” meaning they have a Type-A personality. Under-rollers are the opposite, being a member of the more submissive and laid-back niche. Sorry under-rollers, but you’re probably not going to rule to world any time soon.

The study also found that some over-the-roll-people feel so strongly about the orientation of their toilet paper, that they actually admitted to flipping the roll over if they come across a stray under-roll at someone’s house. Now that’s dedication.

You can take those studies and flush them down the toilet along with the paper that gets rolled over the top! (Or from the front)!

Well of course you would say that Mr. Type A personality [emoticon]

I will just let you do what you want while I put the paper on the back of the roll (or from the back)

Sheeesh! Apparently the guy that patented rolled toilet paper should have been more specific about "over" being the proper orientation of the roll instead of just showing it that way in every drawing.
