Or how Men & Women can live together in harmony.
I know we've all heard the great debate on whether the toilet seat should be left up for the men or down for the women.
Well I've got an answer that solves this once and for all. It is very simple really.
Remember that other piece of the toilet seat that's on there? The lid?
The simple solution to every one's problems is to KEEP THE LID CLOSED when not in use.
Now before the men come and argue this... Some things to remember:
Men - you need that seat to be down sometimes too. I know that you don't want to sit in water any more than we do.
Keeping the lid shut avoids having to see what might not have gone down when you last flushed the toilet.
Keeping the lid shut avoids the toilet aerosol that can spread all sorts of yucky stuff.
Keeping the lid down helps to keep certain odors contained for a while.
Keeping the lid down means that everyone has to do a bit of (not so hard really) work when using the toilet.
and more importantly... there is a point in a baby's life where they are exploring everything. Keeping the lid down (and sometimes locked for some) keeps the baby from playing in the toilet, which is not only gross, it can be dangerous.
I used to have a very cute cross stitched sign behind my toilet. It said:
Lower the lid please
a wet behind
is most unpleasant.
