Boisins, I wouldn't fall in the toilet now because my big fat ass wouldn't let me!! LOL!! No I'm just kidding, my ass ain't that big. When you are half asleep though during the night I did once. Hey man,I was half asleep, I wasn't even paying attention!! LOL!!
well HG, I could have said,"why do ALL men leave the toilet seat up?" But I guess I could have said,"why do some men leave the toilet seat up?" Some men have respect for other people. At my job, I have nasty men who pee on the seat while it's up and do not put it down. It's just disgusting to look at it. I also have to take a paper towel and put the seat down because I don't want to touch it. I'm sorry I should have said, "why do some men leave the toilet seat up?"

My question is why do women not check first???? My household was all male, so though I tried to teach my boys to put the seat down, they have always had their own bathroom so I didn't use it at all. As for the now ex husband?? If he was tired it stayed up. I always could feel by the back of my legs if the seat was up or down, I only needed to fall in ONCE to learn that lesson. I always check before sitting, no big deal. So guys, I would much rather have you leave the seat up than fail to put it up in the fist place. Cold wet pee on the seat YUCK....

Why do you assume all men do things because one guy did something? This is repeated in many posts. "Why do men?"
The previous poster has a point. If a guy is smart enough to lift the seat......
I don't remember at what age(single digits) my mom took me into the bathroom and told me to drop my pants, she picked me up and sat me in the toilet bowl. Then asked me how I liked the feel of that! Then told me that was my only warning on putting the seat back down. Next time the pants dropped and the belt went to work. For that reason the bare butt and belt never met.
Move ahead several years when I was single, women that came to my house was convinced I was married because the toilet seats were down in the house. Today, yep the seats are still down. My mom is 70 and still would bust my butt if she came here and the seat was up.
yeah, I like the seperate bathroom idea. Not because the toilet seat, but when my husband and I get up at the same time, I'm putting on my makeup and he's trying to take a crap! I usually wait though because I like privacy when I'm taking a crap even if it is my husband. Growing up in a house of 4 males and 2 females, the guys always left the toilet seat up and I did fall in one time during the night. Also, they couldn't aim and pee was everywhere. You can imagine how mad I was.

@TURTLESDOVE - The seat follows the position of the user :-). The solution - separate bathrooms! One of the things an apartment that my wife and I look at absolutely has to have is a 'downer' bathroom for her, and an 'upper' bathroom for me - then I NEVER have to put the seat down (unless I get lazy and use her's)!
Tom, you are just too funny. That happened to me once but now that my a$$ is so huge, I don't fall in. LOL!! I'm just kidding, my a$$ ain't that big or I'd be J-LO!! Ha!

If a man can lift it up, a woman can put it down. I put the seat down (and the lid) for two reasons: I don't want our 3 year old playing in it with his toy boat or anything else; and because I don't want to be the next person to return to the bathroom at night and drop my ass into the water because the seat's up.

Growing up men were outnumbered 4 to 2... so needless to say I would not have gotten away with it. To this day I always put it down. Really not that tough to do. I've also instilled that in my son so he won't be a pain to some young lady when.. way in the future.. he gets married. Too many other issues in a household.. that shouldn't be one of them.
I lift it and put it down. Even I don't like to sit in anothers pee so it is common courtesy. I have taught my boys to do the same so when they get older and start seeking out girls for relationships they will know better.
For me: I grew up pretty much an only child (my closest sib is 8 years older than me) and with a single parent (my Mom). She taught me at an early age to put the seat down after I pee but that was only AFTER she had taught me to first LIFT the seat when I DO pee.
ha! This should be interesting!! You see guys, this is the thing. Men and women both take a crap sitting down. Women pee sitting down. Guys pee standing up, unless you're doing both at the same time. So you see guys, majority rules!! Really,though, I'm so bored at work I need to type something interesting. I need a new job, clearly I do.
