I dislike automated bathroom fixtures... with a passion.
Why must they always in a state of disrepair?
There's the soap dispenser that won't dispense. The water faucet that won't turn on or will turn on but then not off. The toilet that flushes while you're still sitting on it. The hand dryers that won't turn on or turns off as soon as you move your hand from the sensor to the air flow. And how about those paper towel dispensers that give you two inches or nothing?
Then when the power goes out you can't flush or wash.
Why do these things have to be electric? What was wrong with the old-fashioned mechanical devices?
Don't tell me a paper-less bathroom is cleaner, because I've been in my share of paper-less swamps.
And while I'm on my soap-box, why are the towels/dryers so far away from the sinks in airport bathrooms?
Dear Architect - you know we can't leave our bags unattended. Your design makes me get my baggage handles wet which I also dislike.
