The toilet seat question
This is a question that has garnered me many different reactions. I’ve been slapped, had beer thrown at me and basically been told I was a complete ass. They’ve either happened separately or in combinations. Actually, the combo deal is a slap and a name or a beer and a name. Can’t say I’ve ever had the beer, slap combo, yet.
Guys get yelled at about the toilet seat all the time. You’re either getting yelled at about it, you live alone or, you’ve been “trained”. If you leave it up, you get yelled at about how someone almost fell in. You leave it down and well, you know what you get yelled at for then. You get slapped when you make statements like, “next time I’ll leave it down” or “how many times you gonna sit down without looking first?” You can get a beer tossed your way for making statements like, “damn, it didn’t take me that long to train the dog to go outside!”
You see, the way I see it, you should look before you sit. Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night and lowered your butt down on some cold porcelain? I did! Once! And I promise, I’ll NEVER do it again! That’s the deal. You’re supposed to learn from your mistakes. I never sit on a toilet seat without looking first! Well, I shouldn’t say never, I did do it once.
I personally think I prefer to get yelled at. It’s not as painful or messy as the other two alternatives and to be perfectly honest, I’m barely trainable. But it is fun to try to entice one of the other reactions. It’s payback for the estrogen overdose I’m subjected to every day of my life!
