Many is the time I have searched in vain for a simple paper towel only to find hot air.
Long I wondered why so many establishments find it more economical to install hand dryers than dispense paper towels.
After observing handwashing behavior in a number of (men’s) bathrooms, I have a hypothesis:
Hand dryers are more economical because so few people use them.
Has anyone else noticed how many people will eschew drying their hands if presented only a hand dryer?
Has anyone else actually left a bathroom without drying their hands (or, at least, drying them on their clothes), because there were no towels?
Does this apply equally to women’s facilities? :o
