Serbian Man vs American Woman: The Toilet-Seat Battle Rages On...

I'm not naming names, but, somebody-just-back-from-the-Balkans apparently unlearned his ability to put the toilet seat back down after using it. Five years of my seat-tutorials down the toilet after just three short weeks visiting the old country. What is it with Central European men? Do women there never teach them anything?

I think not. My long gone Serbian husband NEVER learned! Thankfully, I was able to educate my three sons.
But aren't you glad to have him back anyway? Remember, you missed the guy!!!

No need to generalize. As an Eastern European man, I have always put the toilet seat down.

Can someone please explain what's the big deal with toilet seats and women? You come in, adjust it to your own liking, personal style or preference, and get out. Someone else comes in, and do the same. Should women make one less arm movement because they are 'fairer sex'? I'm not mocking anybody, I simply do not understand.. Maybe I had spent to much time in Balkans..

I do not understand you!
How do you know that the toilet seat down is RIGHT position?!?!?
Where did you read it???
Look at any manual for toilets, THE RIGHT position of toilet seat is UP!
So, you do not put toilet seat to right position after usage!
I can not believe how many women complain about it.
And further, if you can not find why is UP the rigth position, I ll be happy to share it with you :D

The question is, when will you women learn to put the seat back UP?


Its questions like these that have led to my celibacy.

Gotta agree with Marko on this one.

Sounds like someone needs one of those japanese high tech toilets that senses who comes in the rooms and adjusts the height/style/setting of the toilet automatically LOL

I learned something not that long ago. I live in Germany and somebody pointed out that German men generally never stand up to piss into a sit-down toilet. I've adopted this strategy, and I notice a) that our toilet rooms are a lot cleaner, and b) whenever the Serbian male in-laws visit that there are piss marks on the wall. Foul, frankly. Perhaps all 21st century men should learn to piss sitting down?

Ohhhh Rooobb (Mary Tyler Moore impersonation).

Seriously though, its one thing to give in and become a Beta Male so as to accommodate the Alpha Female but what your implying is downright Omega Male behavior.

The other weird thing is ... the fascination with black socks. In the middle of summer. In Texas. What is up with THAT? My best friend visited me last May; stayed two weeks. Left a pair of socks behind. Black socks. I mailed them back to him but I thought it was pretty funny.
