Miss Manners on Toilet Seat Etiquette
I think that all would agree that there are few situations more unpleasant
than finding oneself perched upon a soggy toilet seat.
In a co-ed restroom at a place of business, there is only one position
for the seat to be in, and that is the upright position. If the
seat is left in the down(wrong) position, any number of "accidents"
might occur. Consider the following profiles:
This individual has no concern other than insuring that his own clothing
remains dry. If the seat is in the down(wrong) position, there is literally
no time for him to lift the seat into the up(right) position.
Considering the individual's frantic state of mind at that moment,
the liquid in question is certain to be found, at least in part, on
the down(wrong) seat.
The Expert Marksman
This person is so sure of his shooting skills that he finds the seat
in the down(wrong) position to be a worthy challenge to his sportsmanship.
Not only will he NOT move the seat into the up(right) position, he will
most certainly leave it there to once again prove to himself that his
aim is true.
The Apathetic Man
This is someone who cares not for the health and well-being of others,
thinking only that as long as HE doesn't have to sit on it, somebody
else can clean it up.
People like this will go out of their way to make others' lives as uncomfortable
as possible. This type of malicious individual will actually lower the
seat into the down(wrong) position in order to soil the sanctity of
the seat to delight in the discomfort of others.
To avoid the above situations, the correct position for the toilet
seat to be in 99.99% of the time is the up(RIGHT) position, and should
only be lowered to the down(WRONG) position when absolutely necessary,
then immediately returned to the upright position as soon as the business
has been conducted.
