torn. over a toilet seat.

That was my doing. I almost wanted to add a follow up message saying something to the effect of ::your future wife will appreciate you even more:: but decided I'd rather not live with the fear of getting girl-slapped every time I leave my room.

I hold strongly to my statement that as a visiting guy, you should respect the lady's room and return it to its original condition upon completion of your business. No exceptions.

But I wonder.. would I have any grounds for argument when the home is shared between a guy and girl? On an all-female floor it seems pretty straight forward and logical that the seat remains down. But when the bathroom becomes equally shared between two people, what right do I have to demand that the seat always be down for me - just cuz that's how I like it?

The inconvenience of having to put the seat down is just the same for the opposing party. In fact now that I think about it, the guys have it really bad! Not only would he be putting the seat down after use, but prior to, he'd have to lift it to start! That's double seat lifting action!

I'm not ready to say that I feel bad for the guy just yet, but I'm starting to question my expectations. Such a dilemma! What do you all think?

  1. There is a simple solution to all of this...

    I simply utilizes the toilet seat in all situations. I mean why not? It's cleaner. It's less of a mess. Why do you think the ladies room is almost always cleaner? (so i hear at least...) It is less work for everyone. And it is simply the manly way to take care of business. =D

  2. george, the ability to remain upright at times is a gift the good lord has graciously bestowed upon us men :)

    Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17

  3. this is why if i ever get to design my own house, i'm going to put a urinal in the bathroom.

    then the toilet seat can always stay down and i can use that good and perfect gift to stay upright at the urinal.

  4. you guys are hilarious. but i think i'll side with george on this one. you should head a men's campaign against lifting toilet seats. win win!

  5. my friend once had a sign in his bathroom that said something like this...

    "we aim to please, you aim too please"

  6. I put the seat down and the lid too, hence, females and males alike irritate me with their bathroom etiquette.
