One for the Good Guys

It's me again *waves* with another one of my class portfolio writings that my wife finds amusing.

Gentleman your attention please! What I am about to tell you is a first, and must be told to all men. So listen closely and spread the Word. I have won the toilet seat argument with my wife. I know… take all the time you need. Yes it’s true I won the argument through logic and I am going to tell you how you can take this victory home with you as well. My logic is this: I have to put the toilet seat up everytime it needs to go up. So I am doing all of the work putting it up. She only puts it down. Sounds fair yeah… but there are times when I must put it down as well so I am doing part of the work to put it down too. Therefore, I am doing all of the up work and some of the down work, and she is only doing some of the down work. Doesn’t sound fair anymore. If we are to have an equal amount of work in this, toilet seat movements or marriage, then she needs to handle the down work without complaining all the time. And if you get yelled at about her “falling in” ask her “You look behind you when you back up in a car don’t you? Why the Hell wouldn’t you look behind you with your pants around your ankles?” Just don’t expect her to be enthusiastic about your reasoning, or to openly acknowledge that you’re right – that’s a whole different battle.

Congrats on winning the toliet seat argument. Not only am I amazed that you were able to win that argument you where able to against Jamie. I wish I could have been there to see the look on her face. I will just have to do with my imagination, but it is still funny.

see, Craig has tried that same argument in the past. Needless to say, the toilet seat is presently DOWN! Think what you may about winning the argument. The real winner is shown at the toilet. :)
