look first, sit second, poop third
May 12, 2008
You know how women complain about men leaving the toilet seat up? Of course you do, it’s an old, recycled complaint, and an old, recycled joke from old, recycled comedians. But really, I’m guessing nobody really cares about that anymore. We now believe in personal responsibility.
But there is another call/shriek from the bathroom that makes me think that women must use the bathroom with their eyes closed (how else can you explain the toilet seat issue? Would you ever in a million years sit on a toilet with the seat up? EVER?).
More often than is reasonable, I hear this plaintive cry from the bathroom:
“I NEED TOILET PAPER!”
Come on. Really? It never crossed your mind to check the TP status before you did your business? What, exactly then, IS crossing your mind at that point? What, at that point, could possibly be more important?
Let’s get this straight once and for all:
If you don’t see what you need after step one, please don’t proceed to step two. Please?
