A woman has turned to an online forum to reveal her shock over only just discovering her husband's life-long habit.
Writing on Mumsnet, the woman said:
"So, after 15 years of marriage I’ve just discovered that darling husband puts tissues on the loo seat before using it."
"Now, if it’s a bit grim, I hover. However I have never done the lining thing."
"His argument is he can’t hover to do a poo. And he’s worried about other people’s ‘sweaty bums’."
"So who is being unreasonable? Am I minging? I’ve never caught any diseases from sweaty bum germs to the best of my knowledge."
Many people debated who was right and who was wrong in the comments.
"A lot of people line loos with tissue paper but the official line is there’s no need as the material that loo seats are made of doesn’t really let bacteria grow so probably no need. But I still do just because it makes me feel better about the loo seat." said one.
"I have never done this. What a waste of loo roll!" said another.
"I never understood the lining thing. Surely your hand ends up running the risk of touching the toilet seat to lift it? I'd rather my bum touched it than my hand." another wrote.
"OMG not lining a public bathroom is kind of revolting." wrote another.
What do you think? Line the loo or not?
