This guy was literally using a toilet wrong for his entire life

Honestly.

USING A TOILET is something that we generally do in private, and almost always alone.

So perhaps we should feel for this guy, who has been literally doing it wrong for his entire time on Earth. He took to Reddit’s r/tifu subreddit (that stands for Today I F***ed Up) to share this story:

Our toilet broke so I was in shopping for new ones and the sales person joked (no doubt for the millionth time) 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?”. 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 realize that I’ve misunderstood my entire life and that guys do indeed use the toilet seat. I left empty handed and red faced.

In what seemed like an afterthought, the poor gentleman added:

Thinking about it now, it makes sense. Especially how men’s restrooms have seats. But I just assumed it was a unisex/cost saving/oversight deal.

Oh.

This commenter probably put it best.

You poor b***ard. But, seriously, did you ever think, “Wow, this porcelain is cold, and sometimes wet and caked with dried piss. And I have to spend extraordinary effort to not hit the water with my ass and balls. What could I use to get around some of these obstacles? If only they made a toilet seat for dudes…”
