I'm happy to report that I participated in Joshua's survey. The results are in and I'm in the majority in all categories except Age and Crumple vs. Fold. I'm even quoted:
7. A roll of toilet paper should hang with the loose end
coming forward over the top. 83.1%
hanging down off the back. 8.4%
This question brought out not only the most lopsided response, but also the most passionate write-ins. While a handful of 'other' respondents called the issue 'not worth the fight this brings on,' at least three admitted to taking covert action on the issue - as one explained, "I feel so strongly about the 'rightness' of TP coming forward over the top that I change it when I visit homes where it is 'wrong.' Does anyone else do this?"
Embarrassed as I am to admit it, I do. Or, at least, I have on a few occasions past. I'm somewhat relieved to know that at least I'm part of a toilet paper Jihad, spreading the truth to backwards hangers the world over.
Forward Hangers Unite!
