A delicate subject today …. Forgive me!
Please tell me I am not the only person sad enough to notice these things or perhaps I am the only one silly enough to write them down.
It has intrigued me for many years how professionals with such astonishingly bright minds and fabulous qualifications in design can produce such crap design in areas that are so important to all human beings.
I am talking toilet roll holders here … no joke... it has annoyed me for so long that I just have to write about it!!!
I have – like everyone else – visited toilets in hotels, on trains and planes and all sorts of public places all my life. It amazes me that anyone can position toilet roll holders in places that are almost impossible to get to when you are sat down. The only plausible conclusion I can possibly reach is that designers of this must have a warped sense of humour. There can be no sane explanation for such stupidity!
I am not kidding when I say that on occasions I have come across toilet rolls that are in positions where only a contortionist can get to.
Another thing that annoyed me yesterday was how anyone can design a toilet roll where the perforations are so weak that one piece of tissue breaks off the moment you as much as touch it!
Now let me be clear – I have never professed to be any good at practical stuff with my hands – I am happy to let others far brighter than me do that sort of stuff. But when such crazy design and planning happens I believe we have to say something … so there goes I have said it.
I have got off my chest something that has bugged me for ages. Phew I feel better for that …… maybe I need to get a life :-)
