Whenever I hang a new loo roll I do it so the loose sheet hangs away from the wall as this is obviously correct. Then DH turns it round so the loose sheet hangs by the wall. So I change it back, and DH turns it round again. Every single time.

He has to be doing it deliberately. I should LTB, shouldn't I?

You're doing it the wrong way, your DH is correct!

Get another bog roll holder and hang the paper the way you want.Mark both of them HIS and HERS.

Krampus Mon 11-Apr-16 09:37:16

Yabu and so very very wrong.

Junosmum Mon 11-Apr-16 09:37:31

DH is correct.

BaldHedgehog Mon 11-Apr-16 09:38:56

Oh and YANBU. The only correct way to hang the paper is away from the wall ( easier to grab while reading instead of stroking the wall looking for it).

I'm with you OP

acasualobserver Mon 11-Apr-16 09:40:23

OP, you are wrong. I actually feel sorry for you that you don't know it. Everyone's laughing at you.

BieneBiene Mon 11-Apr-16 09:40:34

You are right obviously.

Inkanta Mon 11-Apr-16 09:40:50

Agree it should be away from the wall. All hotels do it that way.

BaldHedgehog Mon 11-Apr-16 09:41:01

Divorce him on the grounds of very unreasonable behaviour. He's enforcing his fecking way so you might throw in a bit of EA as well during your free 30 minutes at SHL

You are wrong grin

wasonthelist Mon 11-Apr-16 09:41:47

DH is wrong and so are all others on this thread saying it should roll towards the wall - that's just daft. They are probably all cat lovers too.

MooseAndSquirrel Mon 11-Apr-16 09:42:08

LTB, Your doing it the right way!

OTheHugeManatee Mon 11-Apr-16 09:42:47

<ignores people saying YABU>

Thanks for the support, sensible people smile

slicedfinger Mon 11-Apr-16 09:43:55

You are right. Don't LTB yet, fold the ends into a nice point like they do in hotels. That will really wind him up.

MyKingdomForBrie Mon 11-Apr-16 09:44:11

But it's so unsatisfyingly messy when the end hangs away from the wall.

You're a scruff and so are all you YANBUs!

OTheHugeManatee Mon 11-Apr-16 09:44:47

Sliced grin Utter genius.

Yes do that! grin

SugarMiceInTheRain Mon 11-Apr-16 09:46:51

You're right. Much easier to grab, and as another poster said, that's how hotels always have the loo roll. Though I suppose if you have a cat/ dog/ toddler who likes to unravel loo roll, I can see the logic in having it hanging towards the wall.

Next to the wall risks the transfer of bodily excretions from hand to wall. No such risk with away from wall hanging.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Mon 11-Apr-16 09:47:32

He sounds very stubborn. (Ignores OP showing equal determination). And you are doing it the way I do right, of course. halo
