In spanish Spanish we still use to say "tira de la cadena" (literally, "pull the chain") for flushing the toilet, because in the past there was very common to have the toilet water deposit high and you emptied it by, well, pulling a cord or chain. These things have been replaced almost everywhere by button-triggered ones at waist level, but the expression still remains (used even for young people who had never "pulled the chain" to flush the toilet).
