Bad Designs We Live With

Why is it that the spout for so many bathroom faucets are two inches or less from the back edge of the damned bowl? Who thought this was a good idea? You have to hold your hands against the back of the bowl to rinse them and usually end up flooding the counter around the faucet. It is a stupid design.


So, what else in our day-to-day lives is badly designed, that we have to put up with?

I don't know why clock radios are so badly designed, but they seem to be deliberately awful

On mine there is a row of small buttons at the back. The OFF button is third from the right. Try that at o dark thirty.

Sinks with motion sensors. They never work worth a crap. You have to continually wave one hand in front of the sensor while you rinse the other hand off then switch. We have them at work and they annoy the crap outta me.

They don't really have a motion sensor. They're just programmed to turn on and off at random intervals

When I am king those who install those in public restrooms will be rounded up and shot. Maybe just wing them so they have a good wound and suffer a good long time. Those faucets are tools of the devil.

Call your facilities department. They can adjust the flow. We had this problem with the men's restroom near where I work. I was told it had to do with the amount of water flowing per something.

Every time I get home from Lowes and use my bathroom, I cuss about forgetting to look on the faucet aisle for this very reason.

It's an inexpensive design contractors install in new construction. People just don't switch them out for good designs.

It is still a stupid design. It wouldn't cost much to make the spout a little longer.

My bedroom has a ceiling fan right next to an air vent in the ceiling. So the blades overlap the vent. When the fan is on and the air/heat kicks on, the air blows through the fan and makes an annoying noise.

Same here. Mine doesn't make noises, but every time the heater or A/C comes on, it spins my fan.

It only makes noise if the fan is on high. Kinda like talking into a desk fan to alter your voice.

It sure is a balancing act to keep my head out of the blades.
