Full marks for lifting the loo seat, though. He's a little treasure.
I find it difficult to believe that he's Irish. I think he means lifting the
_lid_, which most Irish men do most of the time, if not too drunk.
You of course are teaching your little Irish man to lift the lid and the
seat - right?
I put ping pong balls in the bowl for aiming practise, they don't flush
and the toilet surrounds stay relatively sprinkle free.
I am appalled at the bigotry in this thread. The toilet seat can be
either up or down. To suggest that down should be the default state
and up an abberation punishible by ping pong balls is grossly sexist
and biased towards women. Why should the default state not be up and
leave women the responsibility to ensure it always finishes that way?
Of course the answer is that in fact both the lid and the seat should
be down. That way both sexes have to lift something and replace
something and feng shui is maintained by preventing energy flowing out
of the house through the open water cistern. We men are not all
neanderthals you know.
Ok, we men are not always neanderthals you know.
I don't have *any* preconceptions as regards the seat up seat down lid
up lid down debate.
But I *will not* sit in wee wee splashes.
Is that *really* so weird?
