When gentlemen stand up to pee
  I wish that they’d consider me
  cos I always sit down
In OUR room with no crown
I’m 'hopping' mad as you can see!

(In the UK the throne is another word for the toilet)

Poet's notes ... We had workmen in our house today and they never once put the toilet seat down... it drove me crazy!

Can't blame you, Jan, I sometimes make the same mistake with myself! The solution is to remove the seat from the bowl, but then some dumb arse male would fall in! Thanks for the stop by. / M

Might have to build a special stall...tiny place for their pee to fall...doesn't have to be wide... fitting Willy inside... for dire times, when nature calls

Perhaps you should frame this one and hang above the "throne" Jan! It's such a simple thing to do, I've never understood why it's so difficult to remember for most guys, Happy Saturday xxoo

Your Limerick makes me realize how considerate my husband is. I think it is a pet peeve of the ladies. I enjoyed the humor Jan. xxoo

well done Jan. I agree I am one of the few that put the toilet seat down. Its out of respect for my wife. You have to have manners.

Rub their nose in the floor so they can see how the drips erode it! They may not need to clean it up, but they all end up paying for the damage! Aloha! Rico
