Melinda took a shower. Her mother was upset, then happy, then mad.

Seeing the rash of shower puzzles popping up really made me want to post this, but my three other running puzzles stopped me. So, here it is.

Is the mother's location relevant? If so, is she in the house? In a certain room? Water heater relevant?

Do we have to find what that "slight alterior motive" is?Fairly common. It could help you find out the rest, but unlikely. More likely is that figureing out the rest of the puzzle will tell you it.

did they usually only get cold?
had they not paid their hot water bill? and the hot was cut off, making melindas mum sad, then connected again for a short time, during which melinda had her shower, making melindas mum happy, then melindas mum decided to have a hot shower, but when she went in to the shower, the hot water had been disconnected again?
i don't know....perhaps?

When Melmo saw the steam...
There seems to be some confusion. When the hot water wasa running, Melmo saw steam. Melmo did not see steam when Melinda was showering. In fact, I believe we have already discovered that Melinda took a cold shower, but Melmo thought that she had taken a hot shower.
Recap style questions would probably be helpful to you now to put it together, you have most of the pieces.

Um... is fire relevant?No. Was Melinda in the bathroom when there was steam?NO. Please, there are many ignored avenues of questioning that will be much more fruitful than the steam. The steam is a byproduct of hot water and it's only relevence is that the water it comes from is hot.

Was the hot water on in a different room? Tell me if this is correct:
Melmo sees steam in the bathroom and thinks that melinda has taken a hot shower, but Melinda hasn't even had a shower, and Melinda did not use ANY hot water. this made Melmo be angry, happy, and mad. Correct?

Is Melmo upset because Melinda took too long in shower?
Is Melmo happy because there is hot water?
If so, only madness reason left?

Possible reasons for madness:
a. Melinda used all the soap/shampoo.
b. Melinda still dirty despite amount of time in shower.

a. Melinda used all the soap/shampoo. No.
b. Melinda still dirty despite amount of time in shower.Yes, but why? You actually have this already too.

LoL so much for my idea: we got the happy and angry, now for the upset: Was she worried that there would be no hot water left?That's the little bit more I was tslking about in the lines above.

So just put it together, and you've got it!

So could it be that Melmo is mad that Melinda took a cold shower when she was told to take a hot shower?
or
Whatever made Melinda dirty only washes off with hot water.

or

*******Spoiler!*******

Melinda is repeatedly told not to take cold showers, because she does not get her hair clean when she does. She is also notorious for taking looooooooooooooooooooooooooong showers. Like two hour or more showers. So she takes on of these showers of exraordinary length, after which her mother wanted to take a hot shower. Her mother became upset, because she believed that there would be no hot water left after Melinda's gargantuan shower. When she got in the shower and turned on the hot water, she was happy to find that there was still hot water. Sometime after her hot and steamy shower, she realizes that there could not have possibly been enough hot water for the both of them to have hat hot showers, therefore Melinda must have lapsed back into her habbit of taking cold showers again. This made her mother mad, because Melinda's hair would not be clean from such a shower.

Whew! Kudos to both Crazypalpig and Billkatt888 for sticking this one out to the end, and finally solving it. Way to go! More will come soon, hopefully.
