48 - That should never be allowed to happen, it would cause the building to implode and create a black hole, which would then inevitably consume the earth.

Well.. You see.. She understood that the water was occasionally getting hot.. But she didn't know why. So probably she heard a close neighbor flush their toilet, and then the water got hot. Do you blame toilets everytime your water gets hot? No? Didn't think so.

I just would like to say that anytime anyone in my house uses up water (sinks, washing machine, another shower) then after several minutes, my shower starts to get extremely cold. I'm just saying that my first guess would not be a toilet flushing or a running sink.

Probably a very old building and poor workmanship on the pipe fitters side. I Reno old buildings and you wouldn't believe what they got away with back in the day.

Some buildings still use water towers on the top. Like that episode of CSI:NY where there was a dead body in it, causing people to take blood showers…

The entire buildings plumbing would have to be redone. It was quite possibly made that way for time efficiency and a cheaper cost. The showers and toilets run on the same line, that's why when the cold water is removed to help fill the reservoir tank, the shower becomes hotter.

Well that was uncalled for 18. I thought 17's reference to the viral video of the lady saying "Ain't nobody got time for that." Was clever and fit in nicely as a much needed response to an unmanageable task that was the response to possibly solving the OP's problem. It would have required a huge amount of time, and given OP little in return. 17's post was actually rather accurate. I hope this clears up any confusion 17 may have caused.

actually... especially for me living in Oklahoma where the video is from, that saying is way over used for as new as it is. There are even commercials all over the place with it. #18 was totally justified

I doubt normal toilet usage could make the water become scalding, but if your neighbors send out a signal to everyone else that you are showering and they all start flushing in unison . . . dunh, dunh, dunh!
