Bad Design – The Bathroom Door and the Vending Machine
This is the pinnacle of bad design. The bathroom door has a handle to pull, the door, instead of to push. The use of this design completely defeats the purpose of washing one’s hands, because as soon as you wash your hands, you immediately infect your hands again by touching a handle filled with germs.
Good point re the bathroom door. There was a “how to wash your hands” campaign at ISU a couple years ago; you might still find red posters about how to do so long enough, and how to turn off the water with a paper towel and then open the door with a paper towel and then throw the towel away. That led to a major change for custodians, because most bathrooms didn’t have trashcans near the door, but now they needed them. So most custodians now had an extra can to empty. Unanticipated consequence.
I assume with the vending machine you’re aggravated about the “press selection for price,” which pretty much removes the ability to comparison shop.
