I truly don't understand how people manage to do this. You should always check the status of the toilet. You look to make sure the seat is where you need it, make sure the seat is clean, and make sure the toilet has been flushed after its last use. All of which takes about a second and can be done as you approach the toilet.
#49, I have fallen into the toilet many times, and I'll tell you how. It's late at night, you're tired as hell, you waddle into the bathroom with your eyes half closed, hardly manage to pull your pants down because your muscles don't feel like doin their job cause they are ready to sleep, and you sit down without looking at the toilet and bam! Your butt is in the water because the seat was up. It's very easy to do.
Being tired is a terrible excuse for not even attempting to check your surroundings. Everyone screws up, but you've no one to blame but yourself. And why is it unreasonable for a woman to have to put the seat down because a man put it up ? You clearly expect a man to put the seat up after the woman puts it down (and then put it down again). It's not like guys do it on purpose. It just isn't important so we don't remember. I know loads of women who have absolutely no problem with basic awareness.
Why do men have to take such a stance against putting the toilet seat down? Woman ask one simple request because you are not the only person using that bathroom and men get all defensive. "Well why can't you put it down?" That's like getting out a gallon of milk from the fridge, pouring yourself a glass, and leaving the gallon on the counter. Yes, someone else can come along and put it away, but you got it out for yourself, so why should someone else put it away for you?
73, let's put it this way: A man and a woman live in the same house. They each go to the bathroom two separate times, one being to urinate and the other to defecate. Three out of the four trips require the seat to be down. So why is it the woman's responsibility to have to put the seat back down because of 1/4 of the activity? It isn't. The person using the toilet is responsible for returning the toilet to its original state (INCLUDING wiping away excess urine from the top and around the sides of the bowl where you missed your target). That's like digging a hole in the ground on a path people use and then when someone trips in it telling them, "Well, you should have filled in that hole before walking on it!"
The way I rationalized it to my husband was: We both use it with the seat down. You occasionally put the seat up when you only have to urinate. So because it's used more often in the down position, you should make sure it's down after those few occasions when you put it up.
@75 and 78: you guys really missed the part where I said that guys don't do it on purpose. If I remember, I don't mind putting the lid down if someone wants me to. But I don't think it's appropriate for someone to bitch at me for forgetting to put the seat down when they forgot to check.
Don't worry you'll be fine as long as you don't tell anyone you know that you fell into a toilet.
my opinion has always been this: putting the seat up and down is strictly part of male hygiene. just like cleaning up the toilet during a menstrual cycle is strictly pare of female hygeine. if men wants us to keep up with our hygienic after toiletry rituals, then put your damn seat down. and putting the seat down is a helluva lot less work than what women have to do.
Although I've sat down on a few toilets that had the lid(s) up, I have not experienced falling in. I'm beginning to wonder... Are all the toilets that people fall into huge or something? Either way, FYL, OP.
I have stopped counting how many times this has happened to me but I'm a girl.
omg good lesson for yourself. This should happen to guys more often.
