One of my new roomates, who is a womyn, likes to plaster the walls, furniture, and ceiling with post-it notes with "happy" instructions for living in this household. She signs every one with a smiley face. I'm sure we've all had roomates like that, but I don't find it too annoying. Sure, I'd rather people come talk to me instead of passive-aggressively "suggesting" they might have a problem. But whatever. We haven't had any problems yet.
On one of the post-it's, she demands that we please keep the toilette seat down, thank you very much. Now, I've heard of this before because it's a big thing in pop culture, but I didn't think it was actually real. I don't really care if the seat is up or down, and I don't take any special care to make sure that it is either up or down when I'm finished with it.
So why do women always want it down? Why do us guys have to specificaly cater to them? It's not a big deal or anything, I'm not pissed off because really, it takes like a second to put the seat down when I'm through with it. I'm just confused/curious.
So the toilette seat has to be down all the time, no exceptions, and women get real antsy if that rule isn't followed all the time. So I guess my question, ladies, is why does it matter?
I guess I should also add that I'm a forgetfull bastard, and if I've got a lot on my mind I don't worry about if I put the seat up or down last time I used it.
