We always keep the lid closed when not in use so our cats don't play in the water. Problem solved!
Toilet quandries: The seat: Up/Down and Toilet paper direction
I don't care which way round the Watchtowers and Awakes are - as long as they balance and are within reach when I need them.
TIP OFF THE DAY: Being of such inferior paper quality, they are better used damp!
I live with one husband and two sons. I've fallen into the toilet at 3am. I am just resigned now to making sure the toilet seat is down every time I go to the bathroom. I don't care about the toilet paper as long as there IS some. And I agree with Grandma Jones. Wipe up the pee on the seat and the floor, so I don't have to either sit in it or stand in it!
Always leave both parts of the seat clean and down.
Paper over the top.
Don't discuss the logic of any part of this.
Enjoy a long, happy marriage.
Our TP sits on the counter.
May you all have peace!
I used to fall in when I was a child (when my little brother left the seat up!)... and so taught my son to put it down (or maybe his sister taught him - ). The truth of my life NOW, however, is that I love... and like... my husband way too much to take issue with such a trivial matter. He's a GREAT guy and if leaving the toilet seat up is the worst of his foilbles... then I need to get over myself, truly. I mean, he doesn't get on my case for leaving it down and him having to put it UP to use it (and I never get this "demand" when a girl moves in with a guy - I mean, it was HIS place first, right?), soooo...
BUT... I don't see so well in the dark and so risk falling in. Since I hate a cold, wet, tush... I came up with a great remedy: the night light. My bathrooms are NEVER dark. Ever. Nor is my kitchen (after I fell over the "doggie" gate one night and almost broke my neck! Ooooh, that HURT!!).
As for the toilet paper, coming from a time years ago (when my kids were real little) when toilet paper was somtimes purchased by the roll at the corner store ('cause I couldn't afford more than one roll at a time)... I am just glad to HAVE toilet paper and more than one roll at a time. I was actually so embarassed and traumatized once when I was between jobs and we ran out and had to use napkins so that today I must have a BUTTLOAD of it and so buy it by the barrel, almost. The big Charmin 36-roll stuff, at a minimum! I cannot run out. I can't even get low (somwhere in the background a banshee screams!).
But how it goes on the roller? Who cares? Who has time enough TO care? I truly don't. Life is just too short... and I'm too busy livin' it!
SA, on her own... and keepin' it light, for now...
Seat & Lid must be down & clean. Toilet paper over the top and I fold the end of it into a arrow head, and no Im not gay (not that there is anything wrong with that) I care more about the state of the toilet than the wifey...... The ensiute is my escape form the outside world, my panic room so to speak ;-)
A little act of rebellion: put down the seat and the lid!
After forty years or so of marching around announcing that they can do anything a man can do, I can't figure out why women still need us to operate the toilet seat for them.
I'm with Jefft on this one. Before use... Man leaves it up Woman puts it down . Woman leaves it down man puts it up. It's not rocket science girls!
Terry, I hope some good books come into the store this weekend. Your intellect needs some real food- this is bread and water for your brain.
