So will someone please tell me what in the world is the big deal???

Now, bear in mind that I'm married, and I'm not one that gets obsessive over this particular thing -- though I did go through an obnoxious nagging period when he seemed to have trouble remembering to raise the thing before taking not-so-careful aim.

The 'big deal' is:

(1) "Down" is the "put away" state for a toilet seat. It's just custom. It's like ... uh ... putting the tailgate up on the truck, or closing cabinet doors or returning your tray table to the upright and locked position. :) If it's up, it's yet another example of "messy" -- don't know about you, but I need fewer of those in my house, not more.

(2) The underside of the toilet seat is often not all that pleasant to look at, people. The seat itself stays relatively clean, but the underside ... ick. We all know it's there between cleanings, but nobody really wants to look at it. It's like displaying an enlarged photograph of what the inside of the shower drain looks like.

hoping this helps
