Guys... SHUT THE TOILET SEAT!!!

    Seriously it takes less than a second to do, doesn't require any thought just.. wham it and close it when you're done... period! Just don't mess my lovely cushon decor on it big_smile lol

    Ladies, does it annoy you when the toilet seat is left open? It sure annoys me to the point where I have a big poster on the back door that says... "Hi welcome to my toilet... PLEASE SHUT THE F**** SEAT WHEN YOU'RE DONE!!" (I got that on ebay for just $1.99!)...

      I believe in a fair compromise ... I'll leave the lid down when I complete my business ... provided you leave it up when you complete yours! smile

      Just kidding

      We have two boys and sometimes I hear Shelly scream in the middle of the night because one of them (I know better to do it myself) has left up the lid and she splashed her derriere in the blue water.

      Of course, I could let that one go if they would just stop peeing everywhere but in the toilet. Is it that difficult to aim, or are they in there reliving the epic final scene of the first Ghostbusters movie? I really want to know, but I'm afraid I might prove to be right ...

      Don't cross the streams!

      Why?

      Because that would be really, really, bad!

        Aim.....sometimes the actual "aim" is not the issue, but will not go into details about that. But, one could clean up the mess made.

      I don't understand what the problem is. Women need the seat down, men need it up. If it's down men have to lift it, if it's up, women have to put it down. Is it really that much of a big deal?

      Daniel Carterposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      When my son was little, he came to me saying his mom told him he had to sit down to pee to avoid the mess. So I had a little chat with her and told her we'd sit down to pee if she would stand up to pee and clean up her own mess.

      We agreed that the toilet lid should be put down after use. The rest was never resolved, to my knowledge.

      I have my own place. The lid stays up most the time unless I have company. But when I visit other people's homes, I try to be a good guest.

    LOL I'm sure there are many guys here that have the opposite thought. Why should we come into the bathroom and lift the seat then close it again when we finish? It takes just the same second of time for the women to do it. smile  Why is it that women don't want us to do anything for them accept close the toilet seat? roll

    Guys......Shut the toilet seat? roll

    Come on now. Please do not lump ALL guys in the same category. It is simply unfair to those of us who do things properly and understand the need to put the damn thing down to begin with.

    First off, if there are small children in the house....we do not want them playing in it.

    Secondly, if not done consistently, then the man has no clue or respect for the women they presently visit or live with.

    Thirdly, if you have any pets in the house, then again, you don't want them playing/drinking from the toilet.

    Fourth, if common-sense doesn't rule in your integrity to understand how etiquette plays a factor in a relationship, I would highly suggest some light reading to get a refresher course on what is and what is not proper etiquette, when dealing with the opposite gender.

    Just some thoughts to ponder for those who are unaware. smile big_smile

    You guys are so funny!

    My son was raised with five women (single ma) and he always puts the seat back down. His wife called me to thank me for training him properly.... However, we all five trained him, not just me or I'm sure it wouldn't have taken. smile But when you have 5 of us complaining, it's really easier to just put the dam thing down.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image93
      Marisa Wrightposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Well, one guy in a household of 5 women should put the seat down, but if the men are in the majority in a house, surely the opposite should apply? 

      The toilet seat thing falls into the same category as things like opening the car door for a lady, giving up your seat in a bus etc.  We women can't have it both ways - if we want equality in other things, we can't expect to hang on to privileges like this.

      On the other hand, according to Feng Shui, you should always put the toilet seat AND the lid down - because otherwise, your money can disappear down the toilet.
