    My housemate obviously put a new bog roll on the holder, but with complete disregard for the laws of nature has put in on facing inwards :eek:

    Now I've spent the last 2 hours on the pot trying to figure out why anyone would do this, and also slightly concerned about the knock-on effect this might have across the galaxy, and whether or not the Aztecs/Mayans/Nostradamus predicted this downfall of society.

    So boardsies, toilet roll, inny or outey?

    It's a serious question of dynamic life force versus the dominance of evil spreading its tentacles subtly into the very fabric of mankind.

    I doubt very much if she saw it that way and TBH, she won't notice if you put it back.

    I also feel strongly on this issue OP. Outey of course.

    People can be so STUPID. It's amazing that, as a society, we manage to function at all.

    Ooh la-dee-dah! You all have toilet roll holders!

    Toilet roll goes on top of the cistern of the jax.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,158 ✭✭✭frag420


    On the cistern or on the floor.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 965 ✭✭✭johnr1


    My ex did this. As does a sibling of mine. Annoying.

    Apparently it "looks neater" coming down by the wall :rolleyes:

    Solution: buy paper with a printed pattern on the outside and show them the error of their ways....






    No need to be anal about it.....

    I just drag my ass on the carpet until it's clean. I got the idea from the dog.

    I hate toilet roll holders, now that I have my own house and am the boss of these things, I don't have a toilet roll holder.

    However, if toilet roll holders are to be used, I definitely think the roll should be outward facing.

    Inward facing looks completely wrong to me.

    Worst invention ever - how the fluck are ya supposed to pull & tear the paper with one hand:confused:

    Freestyle on top of cistern or kicking around the floor FTW!!!

    Ooh, a renegade! I yearn for the day when my life has become so complete that these things don't worry me any more.

    If it's on top of the cistern, then you have to use two hands, so how do you browse boards when you're on the pot without a free hand? This is the kind of quantum physics that needs an equation methinks

    ^^ only if the roll is observed can it be on the holder?

    Who are the 5 barbarians that said they don't have a toilet roll holder?


    Outwards of course.

    How you place the toilet roll in the holder says a lot about a person.


  • Posts: 24,714 [Deleted User]


    I couldn't give a damn if it's innie, outie or just left on the cistern or bath etc makes absolutely no difference. I didn't even realise people took notice or had names for it.

    But... Whyyyyyy? :(

    Well, the first reason is really simple - there was no holder in the bathroom of my house when I bought it.

    We never had one in the house I grew up in, the roll was always on the cistern, and I quite liked the stretch required to reach round to get it - toilet-yoga, if you like. In my now-house I have a small table in the bathroom and the toilet roll sits on it. No more toilet yoga for me, unless I'm feeling nostalgic and place it on the cistern. Fun for all the family...

    It's so annoyingly fiddly putting a roll on a holder, especially if it's one of those that has bits at the side that have to be pressed inwards to get the holder part to fit into the bit that's stuck to the wall. The simple slide-on ones are grand.

    Then there's the 'who used the last of the roll and didn't put a new one in the holder' arguments - they don't exist any more.

    At this point, I'd like to add - the whole "toilet seat up or down" argument doesn't exist for me either, primarily because I live alone :D, but also because I close the toilet lid, so everyone who visits or stays with me has to lift one or both contraptions, and close the lid again when they're done. Problem solved, and my cats don't spend time leaving their paw prints inside the toilet bowl.

    Lastly, I ask the same question you've asked, but from the other direction. Why do people want the toilet roll on a holder at all? What's the point?

    I don't have a toilet roll holder. I did have one, but my room mate had a party and it was stolen!!!

    So now the toilet roll is on the floor....

    It looks better. Everything must have a place. It just looks a little.. uncouth not to have one.

    It does have a place. On the little table I have in the bathroom.

    Hehe, that made me laugh. I have found myself drunkenly changing an innie to an outie at house parties, but only if it's one of those easy to use slide-on holders, not one of the fiddly springy-sided ones. I've laughed at myself wondering why I care so much which way the roll is facing.
