Is Cheap Toothpaste Just as Good?

One Reddit user decided to showcase his struggle with his wife -- and other male Redditors instantly came to his support, many sharing their own toothpaste horror stories.

I have my reasons for making my wife use her own tube. from funny

So let's break it down. There are some people who squeeze from any part of the tube and let the top crust over like they just don't care (note, this eventually makes it impossible to unscrew the top). Maybe they don't care and it doesn't bother them, or maybe they're just really busy and in the big scheme of life this is really small beans.

Then there are those who meticulously squeeze from the bottom up, not wasting any precious drop of toothpaste and leaving no residue behind -- keeping it clean and simple. For this group, this small act of cleanliness is so simple and logical, they can't fathom why someone wouldn't take a millisecond to do it the right way.

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY MAUDE BRULARD A view of the bathroom at the world's first real-life 'sand castle hotel', constructed from tonnes of sand and enforced with wood, in the small southern Dutch city of Oss, on October 2, 2015. Curious tourists and the young at heart this summer flocked to Oss to spend a night, for 150 euros ($167) per night, in a specially-built room deep inside the heart of the massive castle sculpture made entirely of sand. Two sand hotels were built in the Netherlands at venues where annual sand art sculpture festivals are being held: one in Oss and the other in the northern Frisian city of Sneek.

TOKYO, JAPAN - JANUARY 6: EXCLUSIVE A urinal that has a video game console above it in the SEGA World complex in Akihabara Electric Town, Tokyo, Japan. For men a stroll to the gents has become a leap into the twenty first century, thanks to the SEGA video games corporation. The company has developed a new entertainment system which is incorporated into a public lavatory. Now rows of peeing men can spend a penny and get a great video game experience while they are at it. The 'Toylet' male urinal video game provides a choice of sumo wrestling, erasing graffiti and dousing an exploding volcano. The 'Toylet' works by a pressure sensor in the base of the urinal measuring the strength and location of the urine stream as it hits the basin. An LCD screen displays the game graphics and rewards the strength, length and accuracy of the pee through a typical video game points system. There are currently no plans for a multiplayer version of the 'Toylet'. (Photo by Matthew Tabaccos / Barcroft Medi / Getty Images)

Heerlen, NETHERLANDS: This picture taken 12 July 2006 shows urinals shaped like a woman's mouth at The McDonalds in Heerlen. McDonalds is going to remove its urinals after complaints by a tourist, declared the owner, Giel Pijpers, 12 July 2006. In his opinion it is art, but in America there are different opinions. The urinals will be sold. 'I'm not going to be pissed off about a couple of urinals' , he declared on Wednesday.

It's worth mentioning there are the rare few who are kind of a hybrid. They may squeeze from the middle and then usher everything to the top as needed, or let the cap get a little crusty, but clean it up when it gets to a sticking point.

So where do you stand?
