  • Maybe he doesn't know how to do it. It's a really challenging task! I think when they hit puberty, they push out the "close the damn lid" part of the brain out with thoughts of sex. =) We keep the seat totally closed, because of the cat, so it's much easier to get DH to put the seat down that way!

  • I would trade putting the seat back down for getting everything in the toilet in a heartbeat....... We can dream right?

  • No one wants to see the cat fall in, so I get cooperation here with putting the lid down. It did happen once and it was a mess that no one wants to repeat
