    used the bathroom on another floor. they have auto sinks, which i don't particularly like, but whatever. they also have the soap dispensers that have a long spout, which i am indifferent about.


    but the two of these together is poor design. you need two hands to operate the soap dispenser, and I reached over with my left hand to accept the soap that i was pumping with my right hand. well, again, automatic sink, so of course water begins pouring out all over my arm. pissed me off.

    i'm going to get to the bottom of this design flaw. I'll keep everybody posted.

    i'm getting answers that leave me yearning for more. it's bad design, poorly thought out, and afterthought to what type of counter material should be used, and it all originates from the fact that everybody believes they're a good designer.

    Most auto-sinks I've used rarely work. I don't know if it's me but I can never get them to work consistently. The only thing worse are the faucets that require you to push the handle down to get water flowing. Most PA rest stops use one of these or the other. Like, motherfucker, you should have someone on duty 24/7 anyway stop worrying about the citizens of this shitty Commonwealth wasting an extra minute of water you cheap worthless cunts. It's not like you're spending the money to fix the roads, I cracked a rim going through a pothole. Fuck you in your ass and die, fuckers.

    also, on a different thought.


    anytime i'm walking into a bathroom and a guy is just walking out of a stall, my thought process immediately goes to "that guy just took a dump." I'm assuming this is the same for everyone else.

    To make things less awkward feeling and just get everything out into the open, when I walk our of bathroom stalls I am going to announce that I have just taken a dump to "clear the air" so to speak.

    the toilets on this floor are awful. just awful.


    i mean, they're actually excellent. extremely powerful to a fault since they're autoflush. i leaned forward a bit to fix the laces on my blue suede loafers, and WHOOOSH my ass became wet thanks to the ice cold tidal water. i felt very vulnerable at that moment.

    I have learned to embrace the auto flush. I make it happen several times throughout my wiping session to act as a sort of bidet.

    The large bathroom in my university's main canteen is quite modern. And full of design flaws. Not only, as I've said before, are the stalls designed for ants--they are so fucking small you can't comfortably close the door despite the fact that the room the stalls are in has so much more space to offer--, the sinks are even worse. They're basically a downward-sloped straight surface and the automatic sink blasts out the water at a weird angle so that in literally 85% of valid hand positions, water splashes around like crazy (thusly, since you move your hands when washing them, you're guaranteed to look like you've just pissed yourself). Maybe they've fixed that by now by reducing the flow rate. Either way, I'm not gonna visit that bathroom again.
