look up any word, like rimming:
The mysterious flushing of automatic toilets even though you haven't sat down or removed yourself from the toilet seat.
Individual sits on toilet to do their “business”. Suddenly the toilet proceeds to make 2 - 3 "phantom flushes" even though all they've done is shifted in the seat or reached for some toilet paper. Sometimes no movement is necessary to trigger this effect.
