    This is in light of my IL's visiting and my FIL's inability to remember to put the toilet seat back down, as well as the lid.

    Every time they come over, and FIL uses the bathroom, he never does it. Granted, he doesn't do it at his home (and MIL puts up with it), but Tim puts both down because:
    1. Nathan used to like to play in the water (when he was just starting to walk) so we had to make sure both were down to prevent him from playing in it.
    2. We have a cabinet & shelf right above/behind the toilet. This poses a hazard for stuff to fall into the toilet if the lid is up.

    Personally I think it is very rude and inconsiderate to do this at someone else's home. Every time he is here, I have to go in and put the seat down after him. It's a minor thing, but still...it rubs my fur the wrong way with his rudeness.

    You need one more choice.

    Leave it like I find it.

    I always put it back as it was when I first walked in. I figure they know there are houseguest coming and the "put" their house in the way they want to "display" it.

    Down always - even at work. Just looks better. When I'm at somebody's house, I pee sitting, as a courtesy, anyway.

    I bet our Admin "sitter" can do it for us.

    Reminds me of a restaurant I went into on my way to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival back when I was in high school.

    Walked back to the bathrooms and each one had a sign on the door that said:

    Pointers.

    Setters.

    If I'm a guest, I'll put the lid down. At home, leave it up, put it down, whatever. It's a pretty minor deal, all things considered, but at someone else's home, it is a courtesy.

    Although I do pee standing up at other people's houses. Darin, that's another man-card violation.

    I second the man-card violation.

    There's a reason for TP.
