I like the old school hand dryers that blow air down, but now there are hand dryers that require you to insert your hand in a device, like so:
I don't like these hand dryers. First, correct me if I'm wrong, but I assume they operate on electricity; and my mama taught me to keep my wet hands away from electricity. Every time I use this air blower, I have to override a parental mandate and it feels like I'm just daring the machine to electrocute me.
Second, the hand dryers are very powerful. It's like placing your hands in a hurricane! Has anyone studied the long term effects that hurricane-force winds have on the human hand? In twenty years, I bet we are all going to have deformed monkey hands (but at least our hands will be dry).
And couldn't the manufacturer think of a better name?
Airblade?!?! Seriously, you want me to stick my hands in a machine that is called the Airblade? I already feel a little apprehensive putting my wet hands in a wind tunnel, but now I have to worry about some blade chopping off an appendage?
I think I'll walk around with damp hands, thank you very much.
