There’s never a dull moment while we navigate through the unpredictable world of dating apps. Based on a profile picture alone, you’re either bound to get flattering compliments or suggestions on how to live your life.
Hana Michels was subjected to the latter after posting her profile photo on Tinder where she was panned by 23 men who saw something objectionable.
In the photo, Michels offered a glimpse of her playful side by posing in a shower cap while going through her morning regimen of brushing her teeth. But instead of commenting on the surprised expression on her face, Tinder users fixated on the offensive toilet paper loaded upside down in the background.
After tweeting about the reactions to the toilet paper, the thread was quickly on a roll.
This is my tinder profile. I’ve had it for a year. 23 men have contacted me to say I’m incorrect about toilet paper pic.twitter.com/uBAcQlZ34r

If there is one thing in the world that is wrong is the toilet paper in the wrong way, DAMMIT

Men also aired out their grievances on Reddit over the toilet paper loading.
Also there's a Reddit thread somewhere that got VERY into the TP pic.twitter.com/h29oF8Mx8h

When it comes to proper toilet paper loading etiquette, people suggested that common sense should always take priority over personal preference.
Even a loyal friend couldn’t understand why anyone would do otherwise.
As your friend I say, “fuck them” but as your roommate I say, “they have a point.”

However, people with pets are an exception to the unspoken rule.
This is how I have my toilet paper. Not because I want to. But because my cat Ted rolls it all into the toilet if it’s the other way. What an ass. https://t.co/bgPvXsQ2Tu

Logically speaking, we’re all wondering the same thing.
Why is this not the acceptable way to have toilet paper? It's so much easier to tear this way

I think its because the paper can touch the bottom of the wall where bacteria can reside. It's probably mostly a rule for public restrooms. I always remember it from the Simpson's when CPS tries to take the kids awayhttps://t.co/qL5jLMI69c

Regardless of gender identification, there is a right way, and a wrong way to position toilet paper. Over the top the the official and correct way. https://t.co/eFLJkPfzzB

Loading TP over instead of under dates back to forever ago.

Opinions are very strong on this.

Maybe the photo was a litmus test to wipe away all the jerks on Tinder.
I never understood the “take selfies in your bathroom” trend, but now I get it: but the toilet paper on wrong in the background and now you can quickly and efficiently screen out all the assholes!
