No, you probably couldn't make this up...

In the toilets at work (please bear with me; this isn't, despite that opening phrase, going to be a horribly TMI post), we have two hand dryers, next to each other. One is the type that dries you by blowing hot air at you (insert Not the Nine O'Clock News joke here...), whilst the other dispenses paper towels. Both work automatically - wave your hand under the dryer to get your hot air or paper towel, whichever you prefer.

I tend to prefer the hot air dryer, but...there's a little bit of a problem. Y'see, either the hot air dryer is powerful enough for this to happen, or near enough to the paper towel dispenser for this to happen, but...whenever you wave your hand under the hot air dryer, the blast of air that jets forth causes the paper towel dispenser to burst into life and dispense an unwanted paper towel at you.

On the bright side, the paper towels are on a perforated roll, so the unwanted towel waves around limply like one of those USA flags on the moon (but more blue) until someone else comes along and uses it, but even so...any attempts at environmentally sound living have just evaporated in a blast of hot air... :-(

I'm a paper towel girl myself, maybe I'd like it pre-warmed by the hot air?
