I have a question for the "internets". When restocking the toilet paper in your bathroom, do you consider how you position the roll in the spindle? Or do you simply pick up the roll and insert it facing which ever direction it happens to be at the time?
I personally believe that there is a proper position that the roll should be placed in whenever restocking. I wouldn't go as far as saying it's a pet peeve of mine, but whenever I see a roll inserted "improperly" my OCD kicks in and I have to correct the "issue".
I would assume that my "Toilet Paper Roll Restocking Etiquette" would be common sense and thus a universal practice, but experience has proved that I should share the secret with the world. This is very simple, so pay attention...
When replacing a roll of toilet paper, you should always position it with the next available sheet rolling out towards you where rotating the roll towards you would result in more sheets being freed from the roll). I constantly encounter bathrooms where the paper rolls in the opposite direction. Why? That would be like pulling back the head of a PEZ dispenser only to have the candy come out the back side of the head.
That's my theory, at least.
