I agree with buckytom. We went from 22+ #1 rules to just 1 #1 rule. The grossest one at that!
And one to add:
1. If you never expect anything, you'll never be disappointed. Anything else is a bonus. (As told to me by my ex repeatedly over 6 years time)

Has anyone ever considered a night light in the bathroom?

Although I have found it annoying to realize the seat is up when I have blindly sat down it the middle of the night (I don't turn the light on because it hurts your eyes when you are half asleep! and by the time your eyes will get adjusted to it, you would be done already!) I have never found it a big enough problem to make it an issue between the man and me. I choose to pick my battles, I'd rather save my "nagging" for more important things!
And for the record I wash my hands it the dark as well, you know the positioning of the sink and soap and don't have to worry about it not being in the right spot!

Smile Seat & lid down

I'm a single male and I always put the seat and lid down after I use the toilet. I was trained that way as a child many decades ago.

I really don't think most women fall into the toilet on a regular basis. It was just a point being made. I did it once (it was something I had never had to deal with my whole life). I learned. I believe most women learn. It is just one of those perpetual arguments that go on between men and women. Kind of like the "argument" my daughter and I have over whether it is "pop" or "soda." We both know we aren't going to change the other's mind, and we don't care. It is just a game with us.

Woohwee! Look at what I started!.......

Sorry to ruin the joke for you Buckytom...I was just joking back. No I don't regularly "fall" into the toilet everytime I go somewhere and the toilet seats up... But there have been a few times i've came close because of it. One time, I was running VERY late for work, and ran in, threw the pants down, and WOAH!! Yes... I normally look before I sit down.. and like some people have stated..
-I don't want to turn the light on in the middle of the night because it hurts.
-I don't have my glasses (contacts) in.
-And i'm just sleepy!
Like Barbara said, It's just something to joke about. I would never get in a "fight" with my husband, or anyone for that matter,over something like that...
