I detest those air hand driers in public restrooms. Not only does the loud hurricane force noise hurt my ears but they simply do not do the job of drying your hands. Well I guess they would if you stood there long enough but my hearing cannot tolerate it plus I got better things to do than stand around in stinky public restrooms. So usually I time it just right to dart out the door when someone else comes in or leaves and swing my arms around madly outside as I walk back to the car.
The other day I was confronted with the next generation of air hand drier.
I am sure it was less than 12 seconds and my hands were dry with no jet turbine noise to set my ears ringing for the next half an hour. You stick your hands straight down into it and move them up and down. The "400mph" wind is coming out from thin narrow slots just above the yellow line on both sides of your hands and so they easily stay centered. This baby works!
Oh the little things in life that just make my day.
