In my house, I'd be a lot happier to see the toilet seat up than down. When it's always down, I know that means my little guys aren't putting it up when they pee. You know what that means, right?
Pee on the seat.
That's what irks me. I've sat on a wet seat many more times than I've sat on the toilet with the lid up. You'd think I'd get into the habit of wiping the seat down every time I go to the bathroom.
Somehow, the great toilet seat debate has become a running theme in our culture. You've likely heard comedians joke about it, read etiquette columns regarding toilets and grappled with the issue in your own home, depending on what your preferences are.
Check out this Men's Weekly article for the masculine viewpoint. It sounds like he's gracious enough to put the seat up when he pees, but resents having to put it back down again. I'm pretty sure he's over thinking it. What's the big deal? Leave it up if you want. Put it down if you want. We can all get along.
I've lived with boys almost all my life. I grew up with two younger brothers and now have a husband and three sons. I'll take a toilet seat that's left up over a sprinkled seat any day.
Do you have a toilet seat preference? Any toilet seat pet peeves? I love comments, so this is the chance to voice your opinion on this burning social issue. You can, of course, post anonymously. ;)
