Fellas: It would behoove all of you to make sure the seat is DOWN for your female partner. If not, we female partners may make so you guys will need to sit down on toilet seat instead of standing.

I don't know...maybe we should all insist they(females) leave the seat UP for US males. Seems just about as reasonable request isn't it?

That was my thinking.

Which was wrong.

But negotiable.

To put this in perspective, Ann Landers (or Dear Abby, I could never tell them apart) said that in all her decades of advice columns there were only two subjects guaranteed to explode her mailbox:

1. Toilet paper-- over the top or down the back?
2. Toilet seat-- up or down?

As Dr. Phil would say, "If these are the biggest problems you have in your life right now..."

Oh no it's about the seat when you go to the bathroom in the middle of the night ,half asleep and fall into to the toilet ! Or maybe it's about the (stupid oaf ) Significant Other who left the seat up !

I have considered the passive aggressive approach of just leaving the seat down 100% of the time, but I suspect that would generate even greater negative feedback.

Seat and lid down except when being used or cleaned.

Keeps out kids, pets, and anything you might drop.

Hey, if your men were doing their jobs right, you wouldnt be regaining consciousness until it was morning and light out enough to see that the seat is up!

IF even then!
