Many creative geniuses believe that they get their best ideas in the shower. And a trip to the bathroom may mean a quick minute for some. But for others, it’s a luxurious excursion where you read a chapter of your favourite novel or light up a few scented candles and do your ruminative thinking.
So it can be safe to say that a toilet seat does more than it’s main function of protecting you from the things inside the bowl. A man recently took to Twitter to ask why these seats aren’t more comfortable considering people spend 4-5 hours a day sitting on them. And people had a lot of thoughts.
It’s crazy that toilet seats aren’t more comfortable seeing as we spend around 4-5 hours a day sitting on them

Intrigued by his tweet, here’s what people had to say about their time in the loo. Some tweeted gifs of aspirational designs, while others shared what their toilet seats were like-

Modern toilet seat designs are deliberately uncomfortable. Whatever happened to the comfy ones where I spent hours reading a novel. pic.twitter.com/0NBU5rnW5H

This was my toilet when I lived in Italy. It’s even less comfortable than it looks. pic.twitter.com/DKudC9X2AS

Back in the 80s they had soft padded ones. Haven't seen one of those in decades.

Wait what? If you’re spending 4-5 hours on a toilet each day, something is really wrong. Maybe you should see a doctor, or start taking ivermectin.
