"Women are irrational, that's all there is to that! Their heads are full of cotton, hay, and rags!" Thus spake Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady. (Full lyrics to the song "A Hymn to Him" can be found at http://www.stlyrics.com/lyrics/myfairla ... ntohim.htm
I, like so many men, get this nonsense from my wife whenever I leave the toilet seat up. I have never understood it. If I leave the seat up, it demonstrates that I have put it up to begin with, thus assuring her that I have not tried to pee with the seat down, thus risking getting some on the seat. I always thought it was a courtesy to leave the seat up, not down. Women don't seem to get that.
Moreover, I have never heard of a woman complaining when a guy leaves both the seat and the lid down, even though you have to bend down further to pick up the lid than you do to lower the seat. So the objection can't be that by leaving the seat up, I am requiring her to make the effort to lower it. I must be missing something. (Or am I just forgetting the truism that started this posting?)
At any rate, it's just something I'll have to endure. In the Army, I was trained to leave all toilet seats up and standing at attention for barracks inspections. A long (and otherwise geneally harmonious) marriage to a wonderful woman has not resulted in her re-training me. I still forget from time to time, and I still hear about it every time that happens.
As Professor Higgins said, "Why can't a woman be more like a man?"
PS - The song, like at least half of the above, is intended to be humorous. I am not at all a misogynist. A misanthrope, perhaps, but that's expected of a cynic, eh?
