The cleanest thing in the house

I am quite confident that there is a genetic disorder that inhibits the male gender from flushing the toilet. I mean.

I have three living here, one grown, full-sized adult male and two young ones. You would think they were allergic to the metal of the lever. You would think that touching it makes them break out in hives and have me run for an epi pen. You’d think.

I’ve heard the wise old mantra “If it’s yellow let it mellow, if it’s brown flush it down.” Except that, NO! No matter what…FLUSH IT DOWN! FLUSH THE TOILET! It’s not that hard, it only takes 1 sec., and it makes the woman of the house very happy!

I really don’t think it’s that much to ask. Especially after my daughter drank pee. Yes, you read that right, and you can read the whole story here!

You would think since that incident they would have learned and that flushing the toilet would become second nature. Nope. That’s why I am convinced that this is the cleanest thing in my house…because I am apparently the only one who uses it!


It might be too late for the man of the house, although he’s been averaging a 70% success rate lately…pretty decent! I am determined, if anything, to instil this one hygienic ritual into my young sons lives. Their future wives, and children, can thank me!

What about you? Any dirty little habits running around your home?
