Cottonelle Contest – Team Over


There is a great debate going on whether the right way to roll is over or under.  I happen to be on the Team Over.  I believe by placing  the roll over less is used and its easier to grab.  I’m almost a fanatic about this issue and I will change a roll if it is placed under because it drives me CRAZY.

What team are you on? Leave me a comment here and you will be entered into a drawing for 1 of 10 Cottonelle gift baskets randomly chosen on January 29, 2010 from all the compiled entries from the bloggers  who participated in the contest. (Not an exclusive A Happy Hippy Mom Giveaway)

  1. Barbara Bethany says

    I like over because it feels like the paper is being protected from germs or something…

  2. Jannet Tseng says

    I am a Team Over! It’s more easier for me to grab the toilet paper.

  3. Margaret Smith says

    I’m a Team Over! Under is just so wrong to me. lol Thanks so much.

  4. patrick moran says

    i thought i was crazy about the over rule but i guess i’m not alone…team over all the way..

  5. Sylvia Belle says

    I am a team over and under drives me crazy also because I refuse to re roll.

  6. Deborah Wellenstein says

    I had to look at my bathrooms, because this is something I never think about. I have three bathrooms, and in two of them, the holders are broken, so the paper is on the counter. In my third bathroom, the paper is actually on the roll, and it is threaded under, so I will pick team under, even though I’m more accurately a team who cares?

  7. Constance L. says

    I am on team over, I agree with you completely. I, also remove the roll and turn it the “Correct” way when it is on the dispenser in the under position.

  8. Sarah Hirsch says

    I’m not on a team, I have no preference – i don’t even check when I put a new roll on. (i like to be surprised, I guess)

  9. Marci says

    OVER OVER OVER!!! How dare anyone have it any other way…..LOL! I have even changed it at other peoples houses…..I need to go to TPA (toilet paper anonymous)….LOL!

  10. Mary M says

    I’m a long-standing member of “Team OVER”. I have had people tell me one reason they do it WRONG is that the cat can’t unroll it if it’s under. Don’t know – my cats don’t unroll it! And my mom drives me crazy — she just does it “however it goes on”! She has no preference!! That’s not right.


    OVER is always the way at our house and it drives me nuts if someone does it wrong!!! just love all you giveaways. hoping to win!!!!

  12. Lori A. says

    Over!! Under drives me nuts…one of the kids puts their bathroom tp under and, even though I rarely use their bathroom, I change it!! :)

  13. Cindy Merrill says

    This may be a bit underhanded- but I’m down with being with team under!

  14. Lauralee Hensley says

    Team over is how I voted, because it’s more hygienic that way.

  15. Jessie D says

    If it’s not over it’s wrong. Why would anyone make things difficult for themselves?

  16. carole rossi says

    OVER you can’t find the end of the paper when it is tucked under.

  17. Patty Niedert says

    Team Over! Took my husband many arguments before getting this burned into his brain!

  18. Ashley says

    im team either! it doesnt matter to me which was it is, i just put it on and however is fine

  19. momznite says

    I am on team Under Dog. Can there really be only 19 percent of us out there?

  20. Barbara says

    I’m trying to reconcile in my mind how this is a team sport, but in the meantime, I’ll join Team Over.

  21. Ann A says

    I’m a cheerleader for Team Under; nothing is wrong with this way, it gets the job done all the same.

  22. Erin R. says

    I’ve been on team over since I was a kid, but really I am just happy if someone other than me bothers to put the roll on the spool.

  23. Jason Nickolay says

    I am a proud member of Team Under!


  24. Jill Myrick says

    We are a Team Over family.
    Thank you so much for the chance to win.


  25. Lisa G. says

    I’m on team under because it’s how my husband and boys usually replace the rolls and I’m just glad they do!

  26. Susan B says

    Definitely over. And I guess I have my family trained to put the paper on correctly or else we are all just TP Over obsessed.

  27. joni says

    Team over here. Why would anyone be team under, then the TP drags on the germy wall behind it.

  28. Rosey says

    Argh, I HATE when Team Under prevails and the pieces of paper rip in your hand piece by piece. I am Team Over, all the way!

  29. barbara wright says

    I’m Team Over, but the rest of my family isn’t with me. They’re with Team leave-on-the-counter

  30. Tim Hughes says

    I am a lifelong member of Team Over. Finally we are being recognized!

  31. Susan Ledet says

    I’m on the Over team. It drives me nut when it’s placed under.
