Over the Top

I've noticed over the past few weeks that neither of my roommates are willing to replace the toilet paper on the roll. Actually, since I know one of them is hardly ever there and he does most of the cleaning, I strongly suspect it's the other one who IS there most of the time and tends to leave messes.

It's really strange to me because it's not like the toilet paper roll holder thing is all that hard to work. And it's not like you have anything else really pressing to do when you're sitting there. And further, leaving the new roll on the back of the toilet requires twisting around in an awkward position to retrieve it when you need it.

It seems like any sensible person would just replace the roll.

I've done it a few times, but since I noticed it was always this way, I stopped doing it. I'm not home most of the time, so it doesn't really affect my life with much frequency.

I just find their unwillingness or indifference to replacing the roll somewhat perplexing.

You would only have to twist around to retrieve the toilet paper roll if you normally sit down facing forwards. What if your roommate usually faces the back of the toilet when he poops? That would mean that having the roll on the back of the toilet would be more convenient for him than on the dispenser.
