So, squeezing toothpaste from the middle of the tube. Long has it ranked up there with leaving the toilet seat up in the catalogue of inconsiderate spouse / partner / housemate / guest habits. But I ask - why?  

I squeeze from the middle of the tube. But not one knows this! This is because I squeeze from the middle of the tube then shut the cap and then scissor my fingers at the bottom of the tube and push up, squeeging all the paste back to the top. I say this not to point out what a great considerate toothpaster I am, but rather because I catch myself thinking, this process takes under a second. How, the toilet seat thing I understand, having been unfortunate enough a few times to stumble sleepily into the loo and sit down into the toilet bowl when someone's left the seat up. But pushing toothpaste to the top of the tube? No sweat.  

In short - judge a person not on how they squeeze.
