r/tifu – So I’m hoping a load of people are going to come out in support of me here but I’ve got that sinking feeling I may be alone in this.
Our toilet broke so I was in shopping for new ones and the sales person joked (no doubt for the millionth time) that I’ll want one that automatically puts the seat down after I’m finished with it. I ‘joked’ back and said if I didn’t have a wife I could save money and not buy one with a seat and I’d never have to hear women complaining about putting it down again. To which he gave me a strange look and said “but what about when you need to poop?”. I naturally pointed out that I’m a guy and therefore don’t put the seat down, I sit on the rim of the bowl. Several embarrassing moments later, I realize that I’ve misunderstood my entire life and that guys do indeed use the toilet seat. I left empty handed and red faced.
Thinking about it now, it makes sense. Especially how men’s restrooms have seats. But I just assumed it was a unisex/cost saving/oversight deal.
So this is making the rounds on the Interwebs today and whether it’s fake (99% chance) or not, it needs to be discussed just in case there are other lost souls out there. First off, shocker of the century this guy is single and has been sitting on the dried piss bowl his entire life. Never thought the two would correlate. But more importantly, is it possible for somebody to be this obtuse? How many times does he need to literally fall in before switching it up a bit and try a different strategy? The definition of insanity at its finest.
Only thing more crazy is if he thought Slatering was common place in society outside of a drunken dare. The ’90’s are over, no matter how good Mario Lopez still looks.
