Technologically Challenged

Today, I was using a restroom with automatic sinks and toilets. I assumed the paper towel dispensers were automatic too. I stood there waving my hands like an idiot before a girl walked in, pulled a lever, and made paper towels come out for me. FML

#2, actually, there's one brand of paper-towel dispenser where the sensor is way over on the right side, where all of the others have the sensor in the center.

When you see one of these, you wave your hand like an idiot in the middle, and unless you are lucky enough to wave way to the right, you end up walking away with wet hands!

Personally, I find OP's experience better than having to decide whether to look like a chicken and potentially splash people as you walk around in public waving your hands or just dealing with the mildly uncomfortable dampness until your hands dry.

I one time stood outside a door stomping on the mat for 5 mins thinking the doors were automatic, while people looked at me like I was crazy.

It happens to everyone, don't worry about it
