Staying in (and out of) hot water
Crack of dawn, chilly tile floor, staring at yourself in the bathroom mirror, and you're waiting, wondering when the water will get hot. If the fixture is directly over the heater it's a short delay. In a bathroom at the other end of the house you may have a long, water-wasting wait.
