    Because they can't put the damn seat down themselves?
    I close the whole deal after use, rather not have the dog in there drinking.

    Why can't women be nice and put the seat up?
    Do they really want us to pee on the seat?
    :ZZZ Flame suit on.:p
    Seriously, we have to put the whole thing down, or the dogs will empty the bowl.

    Or my 15mo son dunking whatever in there. :eek: He's got his own seat now, that he runs up to, picks it up and puts it in place on his own. Still needs a boost up there tho. ;lol

    Just like the rest of our marriage its 50/50 (or thereabouts) division of labor.
    I pick the lid up, she puts it down.

    I'm marketing a similar device myself. It's called the snakebite.

    "Ssssssssssssssss. Hey stupid, yeah, you who just fell in the toilet. Next time you drop your pants and squat look down first. If I was a real snake I would have bit you."

    Funny related story.
    Every morning after getting up I would walk into the bathroom and urinate, sometimes while my wife was standing there brushing her teeth or something.
    Almost inevitably she would object telling me my urine smelled bad and bothered her.
    One day I carried a hidden glass of water in there and slowly poured it into the commode instead of urinating.
    She started ranting again and I showed her what was going on and implied it was not me that was the cause of the smell.
    It turned out to be one of those times when being right just wasn't worth it.

    Toilet seat down and the lid closed to keep the cats from thinking it is a water bowl . . . and it really is not a big deal to lift the seat up or down in my opinion.

    They have hinges for a reason. It allows for the operation in both directions. Pick the direction you need.

    Or...if they don't want you to hit the seat, they can move it out of the way.;lol

    Good humor here, fellas......
    I have been expertly trained to put the seat "DOWN" after doing my thing. It only took my daughter (who is 8yrs old) one time to fall in the water in the middle of the night for my wife to convince me it was the right thing to do.......

    Hows that saying go, "if mum ain't happy, ain't NO ONE HAPPY!!"

    I completely agree. However, if per chance happen to leave the seat up, or put the cover down (after having cleaned the bathroom) I don't want to hear about it. It's like speaker feedback in my house. One female has a problem figuring out how they work and suddenly I'm getting a lesson from 4 directions.

    "Next time someone tries to tell me how to work a toilet seat I'm going to give a lesson on how to piss in the sink. I just won't tell you which one."

    Just how does that gadget know when I'm done leaking? If it's triggered by a timer, that would be dumb for it to start yacking in the middle of a session (ya know- when a lot of er, BEVERAGES were consumed) and takes awhile to pizz. I could see myself peeing on the gadget, hoping to short it out and shut it up.

    I would usually be predisposed to put everything down, but I would probably get yelled at in the middle of the night when a sleepy spouse went to use it. So lid stays up, at least in the evening and beyond.

    But, yeah, we all know that wood burners water a tree from the porch. That's the test of whether you live in a place suitable for wood burning.

    I like the 2nd one Dennis.
    Since I really shouldn't be going on the lid or the seat (this would be bad), I always check before going.
    I guess it's too difficult for the "other ones" to do likewise.
    Flame suit on........ again.
    The only thing required when going outside is to remember to unzip first, .....then to put it back.:cool:

    Forgetting to zip up after is bad enough, but forgetting to unzip before is, well, not good...
