Over the top.


The roll should always be oriented so the paper unrolls over the top and outwards, like the roll on the left.


Any other way is incorrect.
Agree 100%! Over the years, as a plumber working in many hundreds of homes, I found there to be a direct link to the type of customer you were serving by the way the TP & Paper Towels were hung. Evil vs Good is a very accurate description 90% of the time.......maybe that other 10% is cat owners that had no choice?

I could also determine financial condition by the grade of paper towels used.....and was seldom wrong.

Regards!

I thought so.


I've had two places where the setup was like yours. One was a manufactured home (a mobile really), and the other was a hobby farm, with several poles, two meters, and wires .






Sounds like standard electric utility stuff.






Yep.


Except I'm cheap and would do the work myself and save a few bucks.


Oh, and the utilities are underground from to road to the transformer, and then the house, so no mast or pole to break. What is a pain is the power and phone out on the road are overhead, so when the wind blows or snow knocks trees and branches down the power and phone get torn down.


Like this (last winter, but it happens at least once each year).


Yes, it's a 30+ year old trailer. (At 30+ years old, it's a trailer. Ain't no "mobile home" or "manufactured" nothing to it!) The reason I have to have an electrician is because the power company will not reconnect without an electrician's sign off that the 200a breaker service is wired correctly. The new pole is up and everything is ready, but the county office is closed on the weekends. Bastards! So, Monday it is!

Wife's grandma had a double wide built in 85. Actually really nice and well made... That is until her son got it and wrecked it! The one we deal with now, was built in 95 and is not so well made. Had to replace plumbing, roof, a/c, some electrical and a door!
Other than the power debacle, is it a comfortable place to live?

It's not too bad. It's too small for us, which is really why I will be looking to buy a site-built house this year. After that, I'll probably do a small amount of work on it so that one of the kids can make a bachelor pad out of it during college.

'Incorrect' - that word is too fancy.

Use the plain speak, lawyer unfriendly, word 'wrong'. Easier to say, one syllable, too.

I have cats. Over is good, under is evil, and it is also incorrect according to the original patent on TP.
And you must read my previous post, too.

Correct seems a bit pretentious. "Wrong is right" seems more befitting a discourse on plain speaking.

Oy. My last post in March '15 was to recommend Immodium AD. Today you're talking about which way the TP should hang.

Did anyone talk about anything else in between? Anybody want to catch me up?

And I'd really rather a small townhome, but the teenagers...

You'd have to read it to believe it.

Pretentious is condescending, you snob. Correct is right, and right is not quite correct when it comes to wrong.

The 4 cyl Vanguard was much more reliable and less prone to rust than the 6 cyl Vanguard. There is one of them as a gate ornament at a place near Pt Augusta at the south end of Pichi Richi Pass.
One of the joys of reading this thread such erudition

I always read this thread 'backwards' i.e. starting at last post, it's fascinating to find out what set 'topics' going only after reading numerous posts

Medium sized, no yard and LOTS of parking since you have teenagers!! Our house looks like a used car lot most of the time!
