My shower seems to be experiencing some positional dysfunction. Occasionally, with no human intervention, the arm holding up the shower head will suddenly decide that it doesn't like heights anymore and will fall down.

This situation is especially problematic as I'm not particularly short; Allison Janney, for example, is about an inch shorter than me. The shower head needs to be fairly high so that I can wash myself without hitting my head on it. If I'm lucky, the falling shower head stops at about shoulder level. If I'm particularly unlucky, it turns itself into a sudden unexpected standing bidet.

There is a thingy that could, under normal circumstances, be tightened to prevent this. As I am somewhat immune to this phenomenon of 'normal circumstances', the aforementioned thingy can be tightened no further.

As is often the case, minor fail: I has it.

The thingy might have stripped its thread - it may be time for a new showerhead.

*nodnod* That was my plan, when it bothers me enough to actually replace it. In the meantime, the most obvious course of action is to tell the Internet about it. :)

And I've learned that the world is designed for short people. :)

The first apartment (hereafter referred to as "the hobbit hole" was indeed, a door in the side of a hill (it was the basement of a house). A very *short* basement. I, who am not overly tall at 5'7" could put my hand flat on the ceiling without any trouble. The pipe for the shower head came out of the wall at approximately the same height as my nose. I got very good at rinsing my hair while bending backwards at approximately a 30-degree angle...
