About that toilet seat issue

Any guy who has lived with a woman knows what I'm talking about. Girls like us to put the toilet seat down when we are finished.

Let's explore that for a moment.

Why should the natural state of the toilet seat be down rather than up? I maintain that it is because they (females) are lazy creatures who don't want to have to think about repositioning the seat every time they use the john. They have much more important issues on their mind. Like should it be canap├ęs for tomorrow's Bridge Club and, if so, what kinds?

Besides, they want to be able to go in the dark. I've seen them do it!

Men, on the other hand, due to anatomical quirks, may require the seat to be up sometimes, and down at other times. So they always have to check first. This is one reason why they have little empathy for the female... er, position on the subject.

So, guys: If you want to cure your woman of this nag, always put that seat down -- and the cover, too. The first time I did that was when I discovered that girls like to go in the dark. Boy, was she angry! Until I pointed out the gender-neutral aspects of that state -- and that it just plain looks better that way.

End of argument. She was no doubt impressed by my sense of style.

Of course, I had to train her to put the cover down...
