  1. I love how all of these men never once complain, they actually embrace it and coming from a woman it’s lovely to see. Remember men that the toilet seats position is key, down is always right lol

    1. I learned that if a woman lacks the situational awareness to notice if the seat is down, or the lid down or not, means she is probably rigid and prone to many other unawareness habits and therefore injure themselves frequently and do not notice hazards in general. These women generally want the lid up constantly for their convenience with no concern for safety or health reasons.
