Close the lid before flushing, whoever goes next has to take whatever needs up. Case closed and less poop particles everywhere.
@MuddaPukker, This. I have been trying to get my fiancé to close the lid for 5 years now, its less sanitary not to and we have pets that I don't want to have toilet breath. With that reflex, I close the lid at work too. That way everyone has to open the lid, with one or two layers (lid or lid+seat)... equality!
@MuddaPukker, so, I'm a lady who lives with three dudes and promotes this same "nobody wins" philosophy. Not only is it more sanitary, but if everyone has to do something to the toilet before using it... no one complains! #magic
@xiaobandito, read my comment below.
"The Women" they call themselves, everyone knows only one person types like that. you aren't fooling anyone, Jaden Smith
My rule of thumb I picked up in some old men's etiquette guide at a library when I was a kid. Something like: "if sharing a home with or enjoying the company of a special woman, the gentleman shows respect by lowering seat and lid after using the restroom."
I was a weird kid.
Seriously, though, put the damn toilet seat down. It's gross to leave it up.
Look before you sit? No? Too crazy?
@Lysander99, so men can piss however they want, spraying like a toddler, while women or men who sit to pee have to spend time cleaning piss residue off the seat? This request clearly falls into the "Golden Rule" category of just not being an a$$hat
@Melllvar, men have to pay attention, too. The penalty for men not looking first is having to wipe the seat and floor.
Of course if you're dealing with a complete asshole who leaves a mess behind you have more issues than a toilet lid.
@Melllvar, you are confusing Men with Boys. It's a common mistake.
I'm a guy and I always put the seat down. It just doesn't make sense not too.....
I've had this argument for years. Men put the seat down, women put the seat up. Everybody's happy and get to pee faster.
Gotta love those unisex toilets.
