Potty luck

Every toilet in East Berlin seems to have a different flush. Perhaps in rebellion against the conformity of the former socialist state, each toilet's flushing mechanism is completely individual and happily doing its own thing.
This was brought to my attention by Jill and Tanya last week. Being women they quickly noticed some toilets have flush buttons to push, some have levers, some are automatic and some have handles. Some have knobs of course.
But no two are ever the same. Never ever.
Even in my WG (Wohngemeinschaft, or flat share to you and me) there are two bathrooms. One toilet has a handle to pull up and the other a button to push down.
Who says life in the GDR was boring?
