This doesn’t bug me enough to go into the Pit but wanted to share and see if others had equally pointless trivia that mildly bugs them.
More and more I am finding toilet paper dispensers like these in public and office bathrooms: http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NTAwWDUwMA==/z/HnEAAOxyVaBS-pUQ/$_3.JPG?set_id=2
Note that the paper is dispensed out of the bottom of the unit. The cheap-ass paper that they hold tends to tear off inside the unit at random. It wouldn’t be a problem except that building engineers everywhere, sadistic bastids, feel compelled to mount them about two feet off the floor. So that means that from sitting on the toilet, I have to bend over and bend my arm in three places to dig the end of the paper out. If they only mounted the thing at eye level (average person, seated) we could easily reach up into it without breaking any bones. But no… Is there a code stating that they have to be mounted so low?
