Stupid, funny things.

25 January 2005

What girl's hate the most.

I just got an e-mail from my friend. It was suppose to be funny but it really wasn't. It was about all the things that guys do wrong in relationships. The one that caught my eye most was the very first thing the author sites that guys do that drive women crazy. All guys have heard this one before. Yep, you know what I am talking about. The toilet seat complaint. Over and over, all of the time it seems , men get this endless bombardment about the toilet seat not being down. Since I grew up with mostly all brothers, I didn't really hear about it as a child. I did however hear it as jokes on the TV and on many other occasions. It makes me wonder. Why is this such a huge issue? The example you hear a lot is the following. I quote from the e-mail but you have heard this before. It was capped in the e-mail to get the point across. Here we go.

"WOMEN DON'T LIKE FALLING INTO THE TOILET WHEN THEY GET UP TO USE THE BATHROOM AT 3:30 A.M.! I mean, would you want to end up with your butt in the toilet at 3:30 A.M.?"

What I think is funny is how it is always 3:30 am? I almost never have to get up during the night to go to the bathroom. Maybe girls are different (and I know they are) and do have to get up that early to go. I almost never have to do it. The bigger question though is if they hate falling into the toilet then why in the world don't they check if the lid is down before they sit down in the water? That is the real question.

Now don't get me wrong. I think it is a fine thing for a gentleman to put the seat down after he is done but no one is perfect and everyone forgets now and then. It is just interesting to me that girls don't try to protect themselves with a glance at the seat before they dive in. Why does all of the blame fall on the guys? I guess the argument would be that the guy is the only one that puts the seat up. But come on, isn't it the girl that didn't check, maybe they shouldn't have to I guess, and like I said before guys should be gentlemanly and put it down, but at the same time shouldn't girls have to look out for themselves?

My argument if futile though. It is a losing battle. If the toilette seat is up then it will be some mans fault and alwasy will be. So guys-- be sure to put the seat down. I know it is hard but it is for your own good.
