Before you get married, you need to ask some serious questions. Do you squeeze the toothpaste from the middle or from the bottom?
Do you prefer showers or baths? And, most importantly, do you promise to put the toilet seat back down before you leave the bathroom?
The definitive answer to this last question may never be found, but now a tech company invested in preserving marriages for the long term has created a product that eliminates the conversation altogether. It’s called SmartNudge.
SmartNudge is a kind of “helping hand” that attaches to the lid of any ordinary toilet. With the help of a built-in 90-second timer and a sensor, the device pushes a toilet seat that has been left up for too long back down. Now you no longer have to worry about falling into the toilet bowl when you stumble into your bathroom late at night!
If your partner can’t remember to do this one thing, then let technology take care of it for you. After all, you don’t need to add one more thing to your list of things to potentially argue about.
But introducing more technology or “smart devices” into your home may not be an option for you. So perhaps you would want to try some good old-fashioned communication?
