Sometimes, it’s the smallest things in life that can piss you off the most. Not closing the lid on top of the toothpaste, for example. An act so simple – providing your partner actually does it – but can cause so much aggression (and hate, actual hate) when they simply choose to ignore it, causing an overflow of dried paste that crusts around the nozzle and around the sink. Wet towels not folded correctly over the rail is another, and as for not replacing the toilet roll, it doesn’t get much worse than that.
It would appear, on reflection, that we may be over reacting a tad, but according to a new study conducted by Soap Supplier, over a third of British couples are seriously fed up with their partner’s bathroom habits. So much so, that if they could, would opt for separate bathrooms.
Over 2,500 people were asked to rate each other’s bathroom etiquette. Women rated their partner’s behaviour at 6/10 whereas men were a bit more praiseworthy, rating their partner’s bathroom behaviour at 7/10.
According to the findings, the worst bathroom no-no’s are:
– Dripping toilet seat and not cleaning it up
– Not flushing
– Not replacing the toilet paper
– Leaving the toilet seat up
There is some good news to take away from the survey, however: half of couples in the UK feel comfortable enough to use the bathroom when their partner is on the toilet. Whoever said romance was dead?
