Would you have preferred we argue about toilet paper roll orientation (over or under?)

It absolutely should go over.

papertygre, in this comment

I was going to write a longer entry in response to this earlier, but I think this pretty much sums it up:

I had never thought about toilet paper roll orientation before she made this comment. It literally hadn't occurred to me that it was a choice.

A few days ago, one of my housemates replaced a toilet paper roll, and put it in the “under” orientation. The first time I went to the bathroom after that, it annoyed me. The second, it annoyed me. The third, I just had to switch it.

I've often called myself very sentimental in the past, but I think that may have been a misdescription. Much of what I sometimes classify as sentimentality is actually just obsession.

(Of course, I'm not 100% sure there is a firm line between the two—they seem to reinforce each other, a lot of the time.)
