MAN goes into bathroom. Sees WOMAN did not open bathroom window after shower… Again. This despite her knowing that the extractor fan does not work and therefore the window must be opened to prevent EVERYTHING GOING MOULDY.
MAN purses his lips, shakes his head, mumbles under breath, and opens window. MAN says nothing to WOMAN about this, ever — because it’s midly annoying, but just not that big a deal to stress everyone out about.
FIN. End of story… forever.
WOMAN goes into bathroom. Sees MAN did not put toilet seat down… Again. This despite her telling him that he has to do this many times before.
WOMAN storms out of bathroom, nags man, drags him into the bathroom like a naughty boy, even if he’s on the phone to his Mum/boss/God, and makes him put the toilet seat down and berates him for leaving it in such an uncouth up position. MAN dutifully obeys and lowers the lid.
WOMAN keeps bringing up ‘toilet-seat-gate’ at any and all possible occasions, and many impossible ones, too: at random dinners, at parties, at weddings, in the cinema, whilst making love, and usually and especially in the middle of everything actually going pleasantly.
And WOMAN NEVER LETS IT DROP, EVER, FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES AND WILL EVEN KEEP BRINGING THIS ONE “INCIDENT” UP LITERALLY YEARS LATER ESPECIALLY IN THE MIDDLE OF ARGUMENTS ABOUT OTHER STUFF.
Ah, domestic bliss…
