Admit it, how many of you feel, as I do, infernally stupid trying to get faucets to turn on in public restrooms?
They could at least have some sort of light that comes on when the sink’s out of order, so you’re not standing there waving furiously for nothing. My kids have had a fear of self-flushing toilets their whole lives. Those poor little two-year old bottoms would trigger the toilet sensor too early and they would literally scream as the toilet roared to life. I’m lucky I haven’t lost a kid down the toilet (to date). And then the sinks…their hands are smaller, and kids can barely reach the sink, so they are incessantly waving in front of the faucet and it hardly ever comes on for them. Then we turn to the paper towel dispenser…it’s like some sort of prayer object lesson: “The answer could be yes, no or wait!”
Oh, for the good ol’ days. (And don’t even tell me if you don’t wash your hands after using the restroom. I will not ever ever be your friend again.)
NB: By the way, the song playing today is one of my top favorite songs of all time. I thought it kinda went along with the whole waiting for answers to prayer comment.
