Yep. The males in my house always get into trouble for leaving the toilet seat and lid up it is so annoying not to mention unhygienic!!!! Plus if you keep the lid down you have more money according to feng shui!!!

(keep that up brunetteie, you're makin it very easy for me to rspond )

Men need the seat up, women need it down. Women complain when they find the seat up. Men don't complain when women leave it down because we recognise it as an insignificant issue.

Oh boy, I grew up in a house where the men were outnumbered 2:1 (4 females, 2 males) and the seat was ALWAYS down. Now that I have my own apartment and bathroom, out of habit, I leave the seat down.

now wait a second...i just realized the question asks about the SEAT rather than the LID. so what about that?

personally, i always have the seat and lid both down unless i'm using it. after all, there's a reason they put lids on things...it's so you can close them and keep the things that they hold inside of them (like, in this case, germs!).

Not really, its always down
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 10/17/03 - 3:19:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
There's no point in arguing over it. It's not hard for me to put it down again when I need to use it.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 10/17/03 - 6:34:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I have my own bathroom now. When I was growing up, the guys KNEW not to leave the seat up, or we'd face the wrath of my mother and sisters.

I always try to keep it down, but why can't more women respond like estella?

All girls live here, so it's always down. Plus, we have cats so we have to keep the lid down. They like to jump in the potty.

My husband is awesome, it only took me a couple times to train him to keep it down the first month we met - he never leaves it up
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/20/03 - 12:32:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope...my dad lives in a house with 3 female resident hormone makers, so he pretty much has no choice.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/20/03 - 12:37:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
I guess I just don't get the big deal about this...I don't think its that difficult to just put it down when left up. *shrug*
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/20/03 - 9:01:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why should you have to touch a nasty toilet seat if you aren't the one who put it up in the first place?
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/20/03 - 9:11:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
it's always down becuase its just me and my mum.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/20/03 - 11:01:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh germs. Gotcha. Well I wash my hands after I go to the bathroom, so I suppose I'm not all that bothered by touching the seat. Even though its not like you actually pee >on< the seat.

Anyway, I don't mind doing this at all. I'd rather fight about who drank the last of the milk or let their fork in the sink.

No, we all put it down
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 10/27/03 - 10:00:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. My husband leaves it up. It's not really that hard to put the seat down before I go, so I do just that. There's no point in arguing over something so simple.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 10/27/03 - 10:02:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
nope..then again, i'm not inclined to argue with myself very much...
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 10/28/03 - 3:42:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have three female housemates. I learn quickly.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 10/28/03 - 3:45:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, as it should not be. It's a very simple thing to use.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 10/28/03 - 4:01:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's not, because I live alone - but I usually have the seat down, because I like to shut it when I flush (and also, I don't want any mutant horrors from the Sydney sewers leaping out and attacking me).

Bravo to *estella*, hottsmugirl, jessicamaria. Proof that there are women that don't want to argue about meaningless garbage. Where I live it is just me an my male roommate so it doesn't matter.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/18/03 - 12:45:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
I live alone, so it's not an issue.
