Mothers and Daughters: The Missing Logic Saga Continues

While mother and teen-age daughter drive to school, the following conversation evolves:

Daughter: Fritzie (her brother) sure takes a long shower now.
Mother: Yes. He nicely drains the hot water tank every morning.
Daughter: I mean, I didn't even get to go to the bathroom today because he was in there so long.
Mother: You didn't go to the bathroom this morning?
Daughter: It's okay. I'll just go at school. It's like all Fritzie's fault.
Mother: But we have two bathrooms. Why didn't you use the other one?
Daughter: He was in the shower forever!
Mother: But what about the other bathroom?!
Daughter: It's okay. I'll just try to find time to go at school, but it's not like I'll have enough time. I really have to go though.
Mother: But ...
Daughter: Why are you making such a big deal out of this? Just tell Fritzie it's his fault and he can't take such long showers anymore!

Other bathroom? That would be too easy. Brother's fault makes much more sense in the mind of a teenage girl! Haha! :)

You are like Charlie Brown's teacher--your daughter talks and all she hears from you is wahwahwahwahwahwahwahwah.

Good--I am glad to know our house is not the only one that operates that way.

Now to go get my 11 year old out of the shower so there will be enough hot water left for me to take one.

Are you sure you weren't listening to the congressional inquisition of the auto makers?

Of course it is the brother's fault!!!! Why use the "other" bathroom when you can get your brother in trouble!

This sounds like a familiar arguement. LOL Of course, had it been me I would have used the other washroom and flushed thus taking away all HIS hot water. :p But i'm evil that way. LOL
