After Brown and Yellow....Green
It's always an adventure, you know, in these *comfort stations*.
Will there be manually-dispensed paper towels, an automatic dispenser, or an empty dispenser?
Or will it be one of those ridiculous air-dryers? One of those supersonically loud ones....or one of those weak-a$$ older ones where you have to shake and rub your hands with abandon to get them half-dry?
Long ago I decided that I just couldn't take the all the mysterious excitement of how I'd have to dry off in unfamiliar bathrooms. So I go with a shake, trouser-wipe, and drip-dry methodology everytime, no matter the cornucopia of options.
All these places are trying to be *green* or *cheap* with air-dryers...
I just can't imagine those air-dryers don't use up a lot of electricity - especially that new one that so disturbingly powerful it could blow your merkin off - the so-called XLERATOR.
I say let everyone do as I do - let them dry off on their own slacks. Is it in the health code or something that public bathrooms must provide some device for drying?
They say that one-third of men don't even wash their hands in the bathroom.
I'll take the (way) OVER of that!
