How embarrassing. Imagine living your whole life, and only when you’re into adulthood do you realise you’ve been using the toilet wrong this whole time?

This is what happened to Reddit user jaydogsmith, who was shopping for a new toilet when the sales person broke the news.

“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 shopping for new ones and the sales person joked 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?’”


Yep. Turns out old mate Jay had been pooping on the rim of the bowl. How uncomfortable!

“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 realise that I’ve misunderstood my entire life … Thinking about it now, it makes sense. Especially how men’s restrooms have seats. But I just assumed it was a unisex/cost saving/overnight deal.”
