Toilet Seats

Soft close toilet seats are a cunning invention by toilet seat manufacturers to boost sales of conventional seats as they are broken by visiting soft close seat owners.
They should either exchange all conventional seats for soft close versions or withdraw sales of soft close seats immediately.

Soft closers, soft paper, and soft wet wipes.

The world has gone soft!

Re: Toilet Seats

This house had a soft-close bogseat, it stopped soft-closing of it's own accord, and then later the hinges rusted out and some sticky goo oozed out (presumably the resistant material used in the soft-close jobbie) when the seat detached itself, plus it was thin plastic that bent out of shape under my ample bottom causing the occasional aiming issues for the aft torpedo launcher, so I replaced it with an MDF seat with proper hinges and life on the throne is good...

Re: Toilet Seats

I've got one and I only did because:

  1. My old seat broke.
  2. I got a standard seat from Argos for £20, which lasted for 3 weeks before breaking too. The screws had come out the wood so it was not very good (I will refrain from using one word here).
  3. Went to my local B&Q and this one has seemed to have lasted longer so far (i.e. better than nothing).

Re: Toilet Seats

After rusted screws and fittings, from toilet humidity ! we(e) now only buy toilet Seats with all plastic fittings.

They last much longer, and look better !

There were many words I could have used, but, the aft torpedo launcher gets the best results... Funny

Tall Poppy syndrome (a perceived tendency to discredit or disparage those who have achieved notable wealth or prominence in public life.)

 

Harassment is when someone behaves in a way which offends you or makes you feel distressed or intimidated. This could be abusive comments or jokes, graffiti or insulting gestures.

Harassment is a form of discrimination under the Equality Act 2010.

 

Harassment is both a criminal offence and a civil action under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997. This means that someone can be prosecuted in the criminal courts if they harass you.

It also means you can take action against the person in the civil courts.
