Why must I leave the toilet seat down?

Am I really inconsiderate when I leave the toilet seat up? I'm a guy and I'm living with my girlfriend and she seems to make an issue about it.

Since when did the toilet belong to her? Couldn't I argue why I have to always lift it up after when she's done with it?

I was wondering if any of you couples also had similar situation. If it makes any difference, she grew up with 2 other sisters and no brothers. I can only assume that the toilet seat was always down in her house. Her father was probably "trained" to put it down since he probably didn't want to hear her 3 daughters and his wife bitch about it.

As for me, I have a sister and when we were growing up, there was never an issue with the toilet seat.

You should tell her that if she's making you put the seat down when you're done, it's only fair that she put it up whenever she's done using it. And if she continues to make a big stink about it, go ahead and get a little piss on the seat.

I never understood this concept either. As a fairly normal guy, I use the toilet with the seat up as well as with the seat down depending on my business at the moment.

The toilet seat position was never really a problem for me. If I need it up, I put it up, if I need it down, I put it down and never give it another thought. I would never try to force another person to leave the seat in a certain position when they are done.

I blame Oprah, before her no woman would have ever thought up something so stupid as the toilet seat position to make an isssue...

Because you want to continue to have sex during your miserable self-centered life.

Just being pragmatic...

Perhaps communication is the key:

The problem is this: When we sleepy women get up in the middle of the night to go "tinkle" in our half-sleeping stuper, and you hard-headed men have left your seat up, we fall into the toilet and get our ass wet.

There! You happy now?

Ah hell, I think I just gave you one more reason to leave it up.

Strong agreement.

Then tell her "we play rough around here".




I think you guys should compromise. From 10pm to 10am you can leave the seat down. That way she won't go to piss in the middle of the night and accidentally fall into the toilet.

But if we put the seat and lid down you would be sitting on top of the lid pissing all over the bathroom. If you can lift the lid, you could lower the seat. Having said that, I always lower the lid after use, it is good cosmetically and no fear of dropping anything in there, and I was raised with 4 sisters.

No, the problem is this . . . When we sleepy men get up in the middle of the night to go "tinkle" in our half-sleeping stuper, and you hard-headed women have left the seat down, we get piss all over the seat, and then get bitched at in the morning for being slobs.

I have never understood how someone can argue the leaving the lid on the toilet up is the right thing to do. It ruins the whole aesthetics of the bathroom to have to look at toilet water everytime you go in there. Why do you think there is a lid there in the first place? If not it might as well be a public W.C.

If you start leaving the seat down, it's all over. You're just giving her the upper hand sooner than normal.

Actually, you savages, there is more than just a seat. There is also a lid, and it is meant to be put back down after you have finished your business. If you use tidy bowl or any of the fragrance dispensers, this will help keep your pets from poisoning themselves. Also, it's a handy spot to put a folded towel or discarded clothing when taking a shower. Finally, it's something that is equally inconvenient for BOTH men and women. Neener.
