… a little bit of this, that and a lot more






To all men cohabiting with one (or more…lucky bugger) of the prettier, opposite sex….how do you leave the toilet seat??


Or maybe I should ask…how SHOULD you leave the seat???


Sorry for boring you, but this seems to have become a bone of contention in my household.

    I think men should leave it down, they don’t have their asses falling into the toilet when they sit down to wee!

  3. Killakat said:

    Thats a bloody good answer! lol

    Left up is annoying for women, but the worst is when female co-workers leave the lid up when they flush and every loo-seat is left wet!!! EEEuw.. 🙂

  5. bloubotha said:

    I always believe….leave it like you got it!

    I would prefer the seat left up, but that has become a really minor problem in our household next to the problem of my sister’s drk half now not flushing every time he uses the Loo ( wee only ) his response, he is saving water cos it is only wee after all. Or his using the loo and asking myssister if she needs to use it too as then he won’t flush!!! Thank goodness I use a different loo!

    Mmm – I prefer the seat to be down and closed completely after use – that way – there is never a problem with the up or down and effingschway will be happy too because the good karmic waters cannot flow down the loo!!Hoe gaan dit jy – het jy gekry waarvoor jy gesoek het op FB???

    LOL, Diz – good luck!

    Crap answer from the drk half. It’s summer. Therefore it is fly central all over Africa. Urine attracts flies as fast as shit does and dem li’l flyfeet pick up pee as easily as they pick up more solid stuff – more easily if you ask me. So there he is, placing a cornucopia of strep and other nasties right there for easy transport onto your sarmies, hands and face. Tell him to do a short flush for liquid offal and to keep the lid down (When he’s done of course… he seems just thick enough to need the reminder). Else make him pee on a bush outside someplace far from the house.

    Won’t work in a house with teenage or post-teen adolescent men. Jeez, the entire room will be unapproachable in a matter of hours, if not sooner.

    Not just females, Jo. This is not an anti-islamic comment, but Islamic people, and some others, use a bottle of water and I’m not sure what else (never been able to study how the water is applied – and never wat to thanks). Unfortunately some aim better than others and clean up worse. Our toilet seats are perpetually wet. Sure it might have been clean water when it left the bottle, but it has been places in its travels between water and seat, so that is a liquid I am not about to touch, thanks.

  12. robinhawkins said:

    Only if they spill on it.

  13. robinhawkins said:

    Not for the act itself, ou…. THINK a bit.

  14. robinhawkins said:

    Lol. Ja wat, hulle moer die kak sommer uit ‘n ou uit.

  15. Killakat said:

    lol. Thanks for the immense support DV… 😉

  16. Killakat said:

    Now THAT’s an answer! 🙂 xxx

  17. Killakat said:

    Urghhh!! Can’t they aim???

  18. robinhawkins said:

    No. We’re guys. We don’t do aiming. We just whip it out and wham!

  19. robinhawkins said:

    These are deep existential questions that need to be addressed, clearly. Huge social ramifications that could keep our esteemed philosopher kings pondering for weeks.

  20. robinhawkins said:

    SO pray tell, what is the general consensus or modus operandi in Germany. Is the loo completely automated so the issue simply never comes up? You know, “Vorpsrung durch technic” and all that sort of thing… something like the singing, dancing loo in The Joneses.

  21. bronnie.l said:

    but you ARE ina very testosterone house yes?

  22. Killakat said:

    Actually, at some gas stations, it is automated, it even rotates and cleans the seat…got the fright of my life the first time it happened.I can’t say whether it lifts when it senses one of our 3-legged individuals 😉

  23. Killakat said:

    Yes, the house has lots of testosterone 😀

  24. Killakat said:

    NOT gonna happen, Jacvan 🙂

  25. Killakat said:

    It seemed I needed it, PPD! HELP! lol

  26. linniezx10 said:

    Erm… you are slightly outnumbered, you know?The solution is for you to have your very own bathroom. If the house has only one, send the boys outside to the Lavva-trees. 🙂

  27. Colonialist said:

    I put it down. The more important question, though, is whether men actually lift it before they do their stand-up comedy act. Otherwise, the dampness the ladies feel on sitting down to enjoy THEIR next performance won’t be pure water…

  28. Rockybaby said:

    Happy 2011 and may your toilet seat always be left down.Col has a good comment here, though!xx

  29. Killakat said:

    I have THREE?!?! One for each of THEM! lol

    Definitely down, Dizzy, and with the lid down too. What do they think it’s for?

  32. Moonz said:

    I have no cure. 39 years down the line and we still have the same fight. Men don’t care to listen, never mind do. Do you understand why I’m so cynical about marriage? he he he.. sorry.. but he he he again Luvya xxx

  33. Moonz said:

    checking in – hope your w/end is going well. HUGS xxx

  34. Deedles said:

    Ha ha ha ha…..its a good question and one you may think any sane woman would answer – “down”! Not I. I told my man awhile back that if you leave the toilet seat up, according to the feng shui principles – all the negative energy floats up out the loo and gathers in your home. Best to leave it down. So he does! ALWAYS! Then when I need a wee in the middle of the night, half asleep, dark, I nearly always sit on the damn lid. So – UP!
