Stubborn responses play a role in ignorance, right? For example, we all know children will often argue the silliest things so that they don't have just to say “Yeah, I was wrong." Soooo ... speaking of kids, or instead, speaking of MY kids, my writing about keeping one's mouth shut is inspired by the very same reason I tell my children to CLOSE THE TOILET LID. Hence the title (yeah, I have boys). And I have to tell them this all time time. I mean, ALL. THE. TIME. Haha ... sigh ... seriously guys? Again? And not flushed either??? Gah!
