Far be it from me to opine on the proper use and disposal of toilet paper – neither of which is my strong suit. A lifetime of experience suggests, however, that positioning the roll and dispensing bathroom tissue from it are issues to which I might and perhaps should contribute my expertise. To wit:
The situation depicted to the left is horrible. The roll is backwards. Under what conditions would it be preferable for defecators to reach across the roll, potentially straining their backs or slipping from the toilet seat, to obtain the lead tissue?
A further, but no less vexing, problem concerns the misalignment of plies, as seen in the final photograph. Too often, laziness or incompetence leads defecators who find themselves charged with initiating a new roll’s usage to accept this chaotic situation, leaving it to their successors to suffer or rectify the disorderly deployment of tissue.
Let us remember that the task at hand is to remove excrement from an unseen area around one’s anus: an organized and predictable implement is essential.
This situation is easily rectified. Simply pull on only the top ply for approximately one rotation of the roll, until the beginning of the second ply aligns with the perforations of the top ply. Then tear away the part of the top ply before this point of synchrony. Fold it neatly for use and begin to clean your anus. Henceforth the plies will unroll in tandem.
Finally, never place a trash basket directly beneath your toilet-paper dispenser. This arrangement forces guests to peer into and smell your garbage while leaning over to manage the bathroom tissue. It also forces defecators who have inadvertently unrolled the tissue in an over-zealous fashion either to extract the unused tissue from the garbage or to never use it, in the latter case furthering the receptacle’s status as a “waste” basket.
