Ok, so maybe you all can help me with this, cuz I just don’t get it.
What’s the big damn deal with women getting upset when men leave the toilet seat up? I mean, women don’t put the toilet seat up from men to use, so why should men have to put it down for women? How do you know who’d going to go next and thus which position the seat should be in?
I know, I know. I’ve heard people say that it’s polite and all that for men to leave the seat down, in case she has to get up in the middle of the night to go or something (and you know, it is possible to go when the seat’s not down - I know, I’ve had to do it at night when I didn’t check the seat). But what about women being polite to men?
Frankly, it seems to me it’s all a control issue and women just want the men to leave it the way they (the women) want it, rather than just dealing with it, and getting in the habit of changing the seat as you go.
This may seem like a trivial issue, but I’ve heard women complain about this all the time and it seems really stupid to me (as a woman) that this is such an issue.
If it’s not cleaned often enough that rim can get pretty ugly looking. I put mine down when people are coming over. That’s just in case the walk in for something. If they actually have to go I direct them to the other (gf’s) bathroom.
ratatoskk, if you get up in the middle of the night, you’re not going to fall in. You might end up balancing a little precariously on the thin lip, but most of the time I have enough presence of mind to check if it’s down (though sometimes I’m too asleep to do so).
No way! It’s the middle of night - I don’t want to fall into the toilet and bruise everything. I’m one of those who drink gallons of water and have a weak bladder, so I make at least one trip to the commode each night. And that seat better be down.
Simple solution-put it back the way you found it. Still more work for men;for reasons unknown to me, women pee more often than men. No,smaller bladder is not the correct reason, because fluid intake is proportionately less too.
