Over the top.
I didn't get it at first but over the top. I see:

For less waste I always go under the bottom (why does that sound rude? toilet humour...)
Down, for hygene and aesthetic reasons
The seat now, not the full on lid, that has always been my piece de la resistance
when in a monthly argument, out of nowhere ;) why I didn't leave the toilet seat down when finished, to which I would say why don't you ever lift the seat up.
No longer an issue.
But I must agree, the lid should be down, your wife is very wise.
Tap (at home) for economic reasons, and the water is good. Bottled elsewhere for plumbing reasons....
Polish people, for reasons I have not ascertained, seem to think tap water is poison.
There's nothing wrong with Krakow's water until you ask for it and the looks of bewilderment make you feel like this will be the last thing you ever do.
Water. Too much sugar in the diet. I do however get a sweet tooth on occasion.
As the water is obviously poisoned ;) most homes I go to offer juice or tea lemon and sugar no milk not that it'd be strong enough for milk or coffee, which could be Turkish coffee, leaving the crap in the cup to give you something to wince about.
The answers provided above have been approved by my wife.
That's really when all these so called 'cultural differences' are just a fart in the wind :)
If I've used a pile of spices on food,
There's that really popular coloured salt, can't think of the name, they even colour it too look like vegetables so you think you're doing yourself a favour... :)
