Over...or Under ...What's YOUR Preference?
IS the right way! ;)
Seriously! IS there ANY... QUESTION? OVER of COURSE!
I realize it may come down to a matter of preference. We're all designed differently and so we view and feel things differently. Our abilities to physically maneuver vary too. I get it. There is a physical component to it that just feels so right...when it is the right way for you. And then even with the visual, some see it differently or just don't care. To me...how it feels AND how it looks makes all the difference!
My husband and I are opposites in many ways and even here we differ. He would say UNDER. And we have always disagreed about this...always. Not fight worthy of course...just compromise. If I do it, I get my way and if he does it, he gets his way...unless I just do it my way anyway...but I try.
And for those of you that do it sideways...well that's the ultimate compromise and not an issue for you and so you can stop reading now.
I have wondered if it is because he is a lefty? Maybe things just work differently for a lefty? Or is it a male thing?
But then ya know? What about the logic? It's pure logic really (In SeaSpray's world) ...it truly works better on top...so I don't get it. Then I come back to it must be a male thing because even our pastor worked it into a sermon once while talking about himself and his wife. Go figure. How does a pastor work it into a sermon? Well...suffice it to know...he is very funny and sometimes these odd things just come out. Anyway...his wife prefers over and he prefers under and he thinks SHE is wrong.
He's wrong! My husband is wrong! And anyone who thinks under is better is just wrong...says me.
Even this morning, my husband takes the initiative and sure enough...it's under. So I just flip it around and voila! Over again and all is right with the world. :)
And the thing is... it is s-o-o-o obvious in the kitchen, but he still doesn't see it. He just wants to do it his way and that's it. That is where logic comes into play. Okay...maybe I am too analytical for my own good, but I have to have it on top in the kitchen and when I do it his way... it ends up just not working out...both visually and physically. Admittedly...there is more leeway in the bathroom and I am not as particular in there. He can have it his way in the bathroom...unless I just can't stand it and change my mind. After all...it is a woman's prerogative to change her mind. Right? But I really do try to compromise and let him do it his way in the bathroom and my way in the kitchen.
What about you? Are you an over or under type?
Oh! What am I talking about??? Paper towels and toilet paper!
The logic and visual comes into play with paper towels because the patterns on the paper towels are best displayed from an over the top perspective. That is the visual proof right there for the over argument! Physical comes into play because they tear off more easily from over the top and therefore don't waste as much by dragging a long unnecessary stream of towels off. Although...toilet paper tears better from the top too. And if it is against the holder on the wall it doesn't get lost behind the roll like it does when under.
I'm just sayin... ;)
