The Toilet Seat Conundrum

There's always a lot of talk about arguments over men leaving the toilet seat up - or women leaving it down. I don't see much point in arguing with my beloved over petty things like that, and luckily, neither does he.

The toilet is not an argument-starter in our household.

Here's how you can achieve bathroom bliss:

After use, always put the toilet lid down.

Doesn't matter if you're a man or a woman. Women put the lid down, men put seat and lid down. Sorted! Yes, it really isn't any more difficult than that. That means both will have to lift it when going to the toilet, regardless of who has used it before, and both have to put it down.

Putting the lid down doesn't just mean one thing less to argue over, it also ensures the bathroom looks nicer, smells cleaner, and when you flush the toilet there are less fecal bacteria sprayed into the air and potentially settling on your toothbrush. Another thing - which is actually the reason I started doing it in the first place - is that it's good Feng Shui. A toilet with the lid up makes luck escape. So as you can see, there are a lot of benefits for putting the toilet lid down after use. :)
