Pet Hate Number One

I detest electric hand dryers in toilets.

It's not just that your wet hands drip all over the floor.

It's not just that it takes ages to dry your hands and you have to stand there like a lemon.

It's not just that the hot air makes the toilet room uncomfortable, especially in this hot weather.

It's not just the noise they make and the way you can't shut some of them up.

It's not just the fact that they are more unhealthy than towels because they blow all the germs into the air.

It's not just that they waste energy compared to towels.

It's not just the expense of them.

It's not just the fact that some of them have a little sign on them saying how using them is green and saves trees which of course is utter bollocks.

It's not just that they're imported from China or worse, the USA.

It's all these things and the very notion that bolting to the loo wall two kilograms of stainless steel with a two kilowatt motor might even possibly be a good idea.

They're junk.
