Leaving the toilet seat up?

My g/f received a call from her roommate this morning - the roommate got all Emily Post because I, having spent the night last night, left the toilet seat up. The exact words were, "he doesn't pay rent."

This is the second time, in three months I've been with the g/f, that I've done this. (The other time was, again, middle of the night, after helping move out the roommate's ex, and mentioned while I was cooking everyone breakfast.) Conversely, the roommate leaves cereal bowls--among general clutter--about the place, has never once cleaned the bathroom despite eating an extremely high-fiber diet, and her puppy regular pees on my g/f's stuff. My question: in these days when we're all equal, why can't everyone just move the seat to where they need it? (followup: When the roommate confronts me next time I'm there, what is the proper response?)
