Movie/TV Trivia

Psycho Is the First U.S. Film to Feature a Toilet Flushing

At a time it was considered inappropriate to show a toilet being flushed on screen, Alfred Hitchcock saw an opportunity to add some extra shock to his already shocking film—presenting a scrap of paper, which proves an important clue, failing to flush in a toilet. In the book, the clue was an earring found in the bathroom, but Hitchcock changed it to a piece of paper actually in the toilet, partly to add an extra jolt for viewers.

Writing Prompt

Who was the first person that told me about my career/job? Have I a similar discussions since?


When I first asked myself this question, I was contemplating leaving my first job in consulting. I wanted to understand the narrative arc of my career to make sure I was on a path that was true to my values and goals. So, I thought deeply about why I had ended up there.


After pages of journaling, I determined the first time I learned about management consulting was in my first year at University, when I was I choosing my major. An esteemed alumnus who was a Partner at a top firm in Chicago was giving a speech about consulting. I remember talking to him for an hour about his job. He made a ton of money and got to travel.


Excellent, I thought. And I never looked back.


Make sure you are the reason for being on the path. Not someone else.

Those found guilty are made to pay a whopping $250 penalty.
