Bad Design – The Bathroom Door and the Vending Machine — 1 Comment

  1. 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.
