Really Red

Today I found myself doing something I never dreamed I would ever have to do.

I had to return a toilet seat. A used toilet seat. To the store where I bought it.

It wouldn’t stay attached to the toilet properly and tried to buck me off.

They were very good about it.

Nothing wrong about that! I mean, well, not if you had it for months and used it that long then returned it. You gotta be comfy in the potty yo!

I've changed ones I didn't like, even after a week one time, but never returned one, lol!

A bucking toilet seat? You should have kept it and charged people to use it.

WOW, a toilet seat returner. Never saw you in such a light before.

Well, if the store has a return policy that doesn't explicitly exclude toilet seats...why not?

Vancouver Times front page headline: "Crazy Cat Lady Returns Used Toilet Seat - Hisses At Store Manager, Claws Him And Then Licks Herself."

And how my dear did you ever keep a straight face when you explained the reason for the return? "It kept bucking me off!" AHAHAHHAHAHAH

We have the ladies bathroom down the hall here at work and one too many ladies have ridden it side saddle so now if you don't position yourself just right, getting bucked off is a very real possiblity. :)

Toilet seats have got to be comfortable. Good for you for returning it.

As finicky as I am about buying plungers, you KNOW I could never pull of a toilet seat return. You are my hero.

I am so happy now.

Perhaps you should've opened a bar in the bathroom with people paying to trying to stay on the toilet like one of those bulls in cowboy bars...

...a potential money making scheme if ever I saw one.
