A husband who is sick of his wife complaining about his poor aim while using the toilet made her try it out for herself using a bucket and a hose.
Jaimie Kramer said that his wife Jess Kramer would frequently highlight his inability to 'get every drop in' while using the loo as she was forced to clean up his mess 'again, again and again'.
His toilet habits became a running joke between the pair but the 45-year-old was eager to highlight the 'plight of men' and prove to her just how tricky it is for them to nail their aim.
The father-of-two challenged her to direct all water from a hose into a bucket and although the 37-year-old admitted she'd 'totally lost' she did gain an 'entirely new respect' for her partner's difficulties.
The hilarious pictures, shows Jess directing her hose at two buckets before Jaimie nabs one as he 'doesn't get the luxury of two' and her wriggling over the top to ensure no water drips.
Jaimie, of Williston, Vermont, US, said: "I always joke that being a man has real problems that we take for granted.
"She was going on about me, all the boys and our inability to get every drop in and I was like 'you don't know how hard it is and what we're up against - it's not as cut and dry as you think'.
'I was like 'we don't have as much control as you want to believe we do' and 'you try it to see how much you can get in and you can't spill a drop' - every drop counts.
"I think it was me taking on the plight of men - I'm likely to take on the softball issues that nobody else is really fighting for.
"I thought her attempt was very exemplary of what it's like living with a penis - you're going to get like 80% in.
"Once you understand what you're working with and where it's aiming, you can adjust but there's a couple of moments in the process where you hope, especially when it's dark out.
"I felt vindicated and the more attention the video gets, I feel like our cause is getting out there."
Being the only female in a household of five men, including their male cat and dog, posed some unique challenges for science teacher Jess.
Engineer Jaimie tasked Jess with getting every single droplet in the bucket during a family BBQ and a friend filmed the scene so the mother-of-two could assess exactly how she performed in it.
Jess said: "Whenever I would go to the bathroom and the seat would still be up and I'd notice stuff on the toilet bowl or on the floor and I'd just had to clean it up again, and again, and again.
"It became so much of a joke that it was just another offhand comment of 'had to clean up pee again'.
Jess said: "I also saw people saying 'oh, we're doing this at our next BBQ.'
"I try to make people laugh every day - I want to spread joy, connection and happiness."
Jaimie added: "Every woman who watches it, whether they realise or not, is understanding at least a little bit of the challenge.
"I would also recommend every woman try it - grab yourself a hose and a bucket - put yourself in our position, give it a go."
