    Those air blowers in bathrooms used to replace paper towels. I hate 'em. You never get your hands dry! I would ban them and order public bathrooms to have nice, fluffy paper towels.

    I know what you mean. It takes so long for my hands to get dry when I use such things. Still, if you feel so strongly about it, write to the establishment and boycott the place.

    I actually hate them because then there's no paper towel to open the door with to exit.

    You realize the EXCUSE that is used for the blowers is that they are conserving paper and the destruction of out precious forests?

    I don't care what their excuse is. I'm not touching a doorknob that's been handled by people who leave a restroom without washing their hands. Yuck. :eusa_hand:
