    des- :  I think its a leftover from when parents teach their kids to wipe their butts. Most parents I know tell kids to stand because logistically its easier to access to wipe. Its also easier for little kids to wipe that way instead of trying to balance on a huge toilet whilst trying to wipe a bottom.

    I think that adults that wipe that way never got the memo that now your feet can touch the floor and your butt is bigger than the toilet hole, you can now sit and wipe!! 😂😂😂

    SithLady :  Next time I’m in the great white north I will have to seek out some ketchup chips, because now I’ve got to know!  

    I mostly stick to plain or salt & vinegar chips.  Sour cream & cheddar, crab chips or red hots on a rare occasion.

    As someone who stands to wipe, I can confirm that it is indeed far less efficient than sitting….still, it’s a hard habit to break. I also agree that I think it’s due to how I was potty trained. I was taught to stand and wipe, and it just never occured to me to do it any other way. I mean, it may be less efficient, but it works. And if it ain’t broke…

    I am legit shocked to learn that people stand to wipe lol. My mind can’t grasp it.

    I guess my SO might be a closet stander. I wouldn’t know, never seen him wipe his ass lol.

    This is hilarious and perfect timing!!! I sit, but I happened to see my husband standing through the mirror while I was in the shower last week and I had NO IDEA people did this. When I asked he said he has done it his entire life because he does not feel it is appropriate to put his hand / arm inside the toilet bowl. And he was astonished that I DID reach down there… but I have never thought of it that way! Especially in my own home when I clean the toilets. 

    And to the people saying their butt is closed when they stand, he was sorta standing / bending / squatting? Definitely a pivitol moment in our marriage for me to see that omg.

    The only two methods I knew about were reaching from the front or putting your arm behind you and wiping from the back. It never occurred to me that people might stand up to wipe. 

    Oh, and I have no idea what Dh does.

    des- :  Yeah my 4 year old still isn’t always a good wiper.  Daycare has always let them do it themselves so there are lots of skid marks.  I think it takes years.  They don’t seem to comprehend the butt and pee areas separately or realize that you can’t just wipe the front and that doesn’t magically take care of the back.  At home my daughter knows to stand up and bend over and I wipe her so I often get called to the bathrom and I walk in and she’s already downward dog with her butthole staring at me. ughhhh

    des- :  Lolol, I can only imagine what y’all sitters must be imagining standing is like…I don’t know, maybe the shape of your butt might change things, but I’ve literally never had a problem with making more of a mess or leaving skid marks in underwear…it just takes a little longer to get clean, but it still works. And like Jackjack said, it’s more of a squat…we don’t stand up straight and clench our cheeks or something.

    des- :  Agreed, my hand has never touched something it shouldn’t have! It really is a divide, because he was essentially mortified like ‘you actually reach your hand below the lid?!?!’ like I was entering hell. 

    But my husband is a super germaphobe when it comes to toilets. He has a hard time even going anywhere other than home and absolutely does not touch the seat anywhere else (even squats at work). To him, I think he is less concerned about touching the bowl or the water, he just feels like anything below that lid is apparently fuming and he doesn’t want to go near it, like the air is tainted. Then again, he is 6ft 130 lbs and eats like a horse… so maybe thats why hahahaha.

    brittnamrogo :  Your fellow commonwealth comrades in Australia are with you on the ketchup/tomato sauce flavor chips. I love atomic tomato flavor chips. Around Australia day they usually limited release a ketchup with a twist flavour of chips here. A few years ago they did a meat pie and tomato sauce flavour chip. OMG..so good and I think I put away 10 packets of chips on my own over  the few months that flavour was available!
