In public restrooms, I hope I'm not the only one who has waved her hands back in forth under a faucet, trying to find the exact place to trigger the water flow. (Others in the restroom, of course, are having no problem!)

And then when you're done and drying your hands off, your purse falls into the sink and triggers the water flow again!

And what's up with the toilets that automatically flush before you even get a chance to sit down?? I can't tell you how many times I've neatly placed the paper seat cover on the seat, turned around to unbutton my pants, and the doggone toilet flushes!

Don't you love modern conveniences?

or...when the toilet flushes before you do your business and refuses to do so afterwards!

In Europe, I've often been baffled by how to turn the water on in sinks in public restrooms -- only to discover the switch on the floor!

Going in public bathrooms can be so confusing these days. I love it when the toilet flushes and splashes water all over you. Or when you pump and pump and there is no soap, or pump and pump and there are no paper towels.

Have you seen the automatic toilet seat covers? When you flush, a new rim of plastic covers the seat? I'm wondering how the machine knows when it's to the end...or do you think they just keep dispensing the old ones?
