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
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!
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 ...
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. Why is it that women don't want us to do anything for them accept close the toilet seat?
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.
The funny thing is that I grew up with five women(mom and four sisters) so this is totally ingrained. When I am at my friens place(3 guys live there) they always yell at me for putting down the seat. Sometimes life is so ironic.
No it doesn't... I did that at my former house.. had two toilets that I labeled one "Penis Only" and the other was "Vagina only".. My ex never went in the Penis toilet because he said he fancied vaginas more!
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. But when you have 5 of us complaining, it's really easier to just put the dam thing down.
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.
Look women I know we've explained this before. It makes any toilet into a reverse b'dai. This way you get clean before you go! As far as the man stains on the porcelan rim just shower everyday and it's not a problem! Next problem please!
u men have what we call "extreme stinky deposits" so we girls don't wanna smell that.. That's why we have all those toilet cleaners and flushers and all that crap so we can breath easily while doing our business..
I just joined here last week and my first hub was - http://hubpagees.com/hub/The-Eternal-To … ng-Dilemma Three of my kids are boys - I teach them (sorry ladies!!) to keep the seat UP to save me from all the mess and they each rotate toilet cleaning duty to understand too!! If you read of my chaos you will understand. Loving all the replies - laughin MUCH
i think women are way more mess makers in the bath room.they clutter it up with tons of girl products. bras hoes ect hang where towels are suppose to they always leave the floor wet after showers. feminine stuff visible in the trash can . i could go on . but ill stop .
why is it that people cant accept the fact that it would be totally fair for men to leave it up and women to leave it down? each partner should have to move it in order to use it that makes it FAIR.. why should men always have to put it down? that is just another way for a woman to get her way i...
When guys say the want to be left alone do they really mean it?I think a lot of girls are like me, when I say I don't want to talk to anybody, I usually do want to talk to someone. Is it different for men?
