Put it down please

After our family easter visit to Sister's, she warned ABI Brother. Next time you visit ABI Brother, you must put the toilet seat down. Don't all males like to leave a dyke's toilet seat in the upright position?

Well Sister, you might not have noticed, but we always put the seat down and the lid. Perhaps you you could put the our lids down when you visit us?

Do as you find in other people's houses is not a bad thing to do. The exception is if they have the toilet paper hanging around the wrong way. This should always be corrected quick smart. The first person who comments that toilet paper can hang either way will get a slapping.

  1. I was going to make a stupid (male) comment but I'll resist the temptation.

  2. I like the seat and the lid down at home, so do the same when out and about. And yes, I have changed other people's loo paper around so it is hanging correctly!

  3. yes Raelene, me also. It must be hanging from the outer side, but as for seats they can swing either way ... that is why they have hinges; and if you want real lav quirks, try the Japs.
    I had a country house-sit once, in a summer drought, where the lav was connected to the dam - very funny to be flushing with water more muddy than what is being flushed.

  4. Holding back Victor? Not like you.

    Marry me Rae.

    Ann, I know all about muddy water in loos from my childhood. Whatever the seat does when in use, it needs to go down, followed by the lid at completion.

  5. you know what I don't like? People who leave the door to the toilet open after they've been in there. WTF. I'd get it if it was in the bathroom but it has its own little room and please shut the door after you.

  6. I like the seat down but I only put the lid down if I have guests.
    There is only one correct way to hang the paper.

  7. If the door was shut Fen, I would shut it. But leaving it open when there are people around indicates that the toilet is free for use.

  8. River, I can't imagine why you would like the seat up. I am pleased all my blog mates know the correct way to hang the roll.

  9. I always thought I was a little pedantic about such things, but I am so glad to be in good company!

    And like Raelene and Ann, I have been know to make minor adjustments in other people's powder rooms.

  10. BTW, what's the correct way to hang the roll?

    I always put the paper off the wall for easy access. I know my sis does it the other way, so I turn the paper around, makes her manic. ;)

  11. Actually read in Bill bryson's book "At Home" that its recommended to put both seats down because after use there are still airborne germs which circulate in the area and we can breathe this in - but then have to balance this against the unpleasant sensation of running to the toilet in the dark hours and sitting on top of the closed lid - not a pleasant event especially if others may have done the same before you

  12. P&C, it is fine to correct wrongs in the world.

    The sheet must hang on the outside away from the wall Peter. I'm afraid your sister is wrong and you are right to correct it.

    Ah MC, but if you get used to lid being down, you will always know to lift it.
