Men on the whole are wonderful BUT When they omit to put the loo seat down Again and again I find that it’s up Then I end up with a massive frown! My need is to sit when I use the loo - Comply with my wishes that’s all I ask Deny it was you – it drives me so mad Why can’t men complete an easy task!

It never bothered me much, as I would just kick it down with my foot.... until one time in the middle of the night I wasn't expecting it up, and almost fell in. Now he keeps it down. Enjoyed your fun and unique lento. Congratulations!

Congratulations on your win. What a fun write. Thanks for the laugh. Just a thought, if men would fall in once it might stop them. Have a blessed day/week...........

Good Morning Jan - I didn't know what would be behind the title. This is upbeat and fun. Thank you for the smile it brings. Yes, beware of toilets and their seats (smile). Have a wonderful day and thank you for sharing. Enjoy poetry soup.

Ha, ha! Good statement of the cardinal principle of bathroom use. My first wife trained me/domesticated me, and now I can't stand it when s/o leaves the seat up either... Worse yet, when there are yellow drops on that seat. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrowl! Meet the Bear named GW. lol. Toilets and Tortoises, gw

You could go on, e.g., men can not sit on the new toilets without holding up their appendage so it doesn't go for a swim . ..

Not true; even with the seat up, internationally, men still pee on the floor!

women need it down and want men to perform the job of putting it down, yet men need it up and women want men to perform that job too!! more evidence of the unfair inequality plaguing our society. bloody sexism, ha ha jokes, did you fall in the loo? good stuff Jan

You should worry, Jan. Annie pours bleach down the loo. When it’s tinkle time, I need protective goggles from the vapours that arise. Seat up? You don’t know your born. Fun write none the less. Best of luck in contest. Terry

Hi Jan, I hate when that happens. You would think putting the toilet seat down his a difficult task. I enjoyed your humorous take on the contest theme. Best wishes in the contest. Have a great day:-) Alexis

As ladies have to sit for the entire performance its only right men do the honourable thing and put it down, it saves a lot of earache lol. Tom
