Cottonelle: Team Over or Under?



I've seen some commercials recently by Cottonelle about whether people prefer their toilet paper to come from over the roll or from under. For me, I pull the TP out of the wrapping, stick it on the roller and put it back, ready to use. I pay ZERO attention to how my TP rolls. :) But, to take a closer look at my rolls, they roll under. Must be the luck of the draw.



So, I am for the Team Under when it comes to Cottonelle. What team would you be on? Would you like to win a gift basket from Cottonelle? By leaving a comment on my post you will be entered to win 1 of 10 Cottonelle gift baskets randomly chosen on January 29, 2010!

I actually have a huge roll of Cottonelle in my closet that I bought just last week at work. I am trying to be 1 of 200 bloggers to win a months supply of TP!! You can visit Cottonelle here:

Leave a comment letting me know what team you're on. That will be your entry. Contest Ends January 29, 2010. Good luck and good wiping. :)

This is funny. I hadn't really thought of this at all until a few years ago when a friend of mine asked me to put a new roll of TP in her bathroom and asked me to put the paper roll up. To be honest I didn't know what that meant--I admitt it. I didn't give this process too much thought but She went on and on about how this was benefitial. When I got home I realized that I did the same thing put the roll in over. I hadn't realized that's what I did on automatic. Doing this made it so much easier to find the beginning of the roll. So, it's funny this survey is taking place. It looks like the overs are winning!!

Ha! Ha! Funny!!

Thanks for having this contest.

Blessings

I most certainly notice and will change it (in my own home) so that it is from over the roll. LOL Funny topic!

bigguysmama said...

Nora, I never thought about it until I was married. I didn't grow up with a dogma of which way the roll was supposed to go. As long as I can rip it off the roll, I'm happy as a clam. hahahaha I pull it out of the packaging and away I go. I think the reason mine roll under is because of how I pull it out. So, I'm an "under" by default.

This is pretty amusing.

I think this is so funny, yet it's about time! No longer should this crucial issue only be argued in private quarters and in hushed tones! Let's get it out in the open, and let's make sure ALL toilet rolls roll UNDER!! :)

In this house, the rolls all go over. ;) This poll totally cracks me up, but I did vote. lol!

bigguysmama said...

Isn't amusing to do something totally obscure like this? Like we don't have enough to argue about as it is! hahahaha We now have public division among the TP users of the world!

so OVER! "that's how i roll"

Amanda said...

I am part of team "over" because that's the way I hang the roll. Really I should probably vote for team countertop because that's where our rolls end up sitting.

bigguysmama said...

Amanda, your post was hysterical! There should be a 3rd category for those of us who neglect to put it on the roll altogether! hahahaha

Nancy said...

Sign me up for Team Under.

Actually I'd also be glad to join the "If Anyone Else in the Family Will Add a New Roll of TP Any Which Way, It Will be Fine With Me" Team! LOL!

Nancy, that's so funny! I feel your pain! It seems I'm always the one to walk in w/out looking and then hoping there's tissue somewhere in that bathroom. How is it that we always get stuck?

Definitely on the team over. I can't help it. I try to let it not bother me, but it does. Free TP is a good thing. Thanks for the giveaway.

Tina said...

I never cared, but when I got married to a man who had been drilled to only do it over, I converted to keep the peace. So it's team over for us!

I'm silly. Mine ALWAYS goes over. Then I fold the ends up and make it look neat and tidy like they do at fancy hotels. My hubby does it either or. I don't care. I just switch it if I notice. :)

One Frugal Lady, that is hysterical that you change it at other people's homes! Can you imagine their reaction if they're fanatical about the way their TP rolls? hahahaha
