I shudder to think of what would have happened if he failed to put the seat down:

MOSCOW, March 4 (RIA Novosti) – A woman in central Russia’s Penza Region has been sentenced to 15 months behind bars after stabbing her husband in the eye when he refused to peel potatoes, the pnz.ru news website said on Wednesday.

The woman, from the outskirts of the city of Penza, stabbed her husband in the left eye with a kitchen knife. She had earlier served time for murder, and had met her future partner immediately after her release from jail, according to assistant to the regional prosecutor Irina Alekseyenko.

The victim waited three days before going to see a doctor. He initially claimed he had injured himself, but then admitted the truth. The man is now almost completely blind in the left eye.

“The victim begged the court to be lenient with his wife,” Alekseyenko said.
