    I don't believe in my 58 years I have ever put a toilet seat down. I have never understood this one, I would expect he or she to survey the logistics of said seat before taking a squat.

    When I encounter a seat down, I simply lift it up and wash my hands when I am done horse trading.

    Marriage, over the course of time, becomes a negotiated peace. Don't fret over the insignificant, don't try to change someone you married as is, and give each other space.

    It helps to pat her on the ass every now and again and tell her you want her right there on the kitchen table.

    Do you wash your hands before or AFTER you grab the reigns? Something to think about ?

    I never got this one either. Who squats without looking to see what they are squatting over unless your a @Sasquatch ?

    It's not always as easy as the dryer fix..............

    GF purchased a mid-2000s buick, 3.8 transverse V-6 FWD.

    Turns out it has a leaky power steering pump.

    "Could you fill it up for me?" Sure, that should be easy......

    I go to parts store with her for fluid. Open the hood up WTF!!!! Power steering pump is hidden underneath alternator and belts/pulleys nearly touching inner fender well.

    So I start looking for a cap or dipstick.........none to be seen. I go back in parts store and ask if they have an idea of location of filler cap: "it's underneath the alternator".

    Well I had brought disposable gloves along , good thing, everything has a cover of black oily crud. I can barely get one hand in between PS pump and alternator, something feels like a cap? After some contortions and nearly skinning a knuckle, I get the cap loose, then it fall down by the steering gear, at least I can see where it fell. I get a stick and poke it so I falls on the ground, then use the stick to sweep it out from under the car.

    Cap is a typical PS cap w/built in dipstick. I'm not even considering trying to put the cap back on to check fluid level. I reach back to the pump and put a gloved finger into pump, no fluid.

    How to get fluid in? Back inside parts store, to check selection of funnels and/or tubing. I find a small funnel that has a flexible long spout, this should work.......

    Took about 5 minutes to make sure the funnel spout was actually inside the PS pump. I just filled it to the top, it's going to leak anyway. Getting the cap back on was another adventure, dropped it a few more times into engine bay and used the stick again to retrieve it.........finally got cap on.

    At this point I'm finished, and one arm is black up to the elbow in grime. Other hand is still clean as could in no way use two hands to do the job.

    I give the GF, the funnel, and rest of quart of PS fluid and said keep these in the trunk.

    The PS pump will get changed as soon as we get some warm weather, but that won't be a quick job either.....

    I use my foot and never touch the seat. Wash hands when bladder has been drained.

    I have my own dryer antidotes.

    First, the heating coil. If that thing breaks, it's ~$20 on Amazon. Just find the part number and it's a fairly straight forward swap out.
    Second, if the heat is fine, but nothing is drying and it takes more than one run to complete, you need to clean out the whole vent system. For those of you lucky enough to have a horizontal vent, get a long wire and affix a brush to one end large enough to hit the sides, shove the other end into a drill, and auger away. (or by the handy kit at Lowes)
    For those of you, like me, unlucky enough to have a vertical vent to the roof, you may be in for a treat... I recommend a day when the temp is sub-100, cuz it sucks otherwise. Climb up on the roof and survey the area near your dryer's location. You should find a chimney type opening with a cover over it. Within that cover should be screening that is jam packed with lint. Find the least destructive way of removing said cover/screen, and clean out all that old singed fluff. If you have to remove the chimney from the roof, like I did, be sure to be delicate with your shingles, and bring some outdoor-use silicone caulk to reseal the holes, tears, nail heads, and seams.
    After the top is cleaned, but before reassembly, it's a good idea to run that same long brush apparatus down through the pipe to scrape the sides clean. A leaf blower at the bottom connector behind the dryer can add to the flair of the activity as you scatter fluff around the neighborhood via your new roof-mounted fluff spout.
    After all is reassembled and sealed, you should have a working dryer again.

    Good luck!

    Noted, on all counts.
    I am pretty handy, and do some repairs, on my own.
    I do also pay someone to do things, but I tell them up front "I'm not paying you to do this because I CANT do it, I am paying you because I don't WANNA DO IT.
    I will be trenching my own 500 feet of gas line in the next few weeks.
    My wife and her boyfriend don't mind me working around the house, as long as I don't get in the way.
