Mother and daughter

The showers in Sara's dorm turned scalding hot whenever a toilet was flushed. To warn others, residents would yell out, "Flushing!" each time they flushed the toilets.

During one of Sara's visits home, a friend of her mother stopped by to chat for a while. Sara's mother was telling her friend how Sara was acting more distant now that she was in college, and that Sara didn't tell her all about her life the way she used to.

Suddenly, out of habit, Sara called out from the bathroom, "Flushing!"

"Good grief," said the friend. "How much more do you want to know?"
