You know, I don't get this. Every now and then, I forget to put the seat down on the toilet in my office's shared bathroom and one of the women inevitably raises hell about it. I really do the best I can, but sometimes I just plain forget. Why should I have to "prep" the toilet for you so you don't have to think about what you're doing before you sit down? I mean I did you the courtesy of lifting it in the first place (because I have to), so why shouldn't you have to check it before you sit down - I do. I guess I have no idea why it's a God-given right to have the toilet prepared and ready for you every time they go to use it. If I have to check to make sure the seat is down when I use it, why shouldn't you?
