    So, my workplace is virtually now paper towel free. I'm trying to adjust to the hand dryers, but it isn't easy. I still use my pants quite a bit. Not to mention, every rest room that has 3 or 4 sinks, has only 1 dryer. I personally don't like just hanging around waiting to dry my hands. What do you think about these things? You can probably guess where I stand.

    Sucks to go in a bathroom and you need some paper towel to dry something and all you see are hand dryers.

    They suck. I hate them. I feel like they don't actually get your hands dry.

    Off topic but I've never understood why it's so important to wash your hands after touching your wiener. Is it any dirtier than the rest of your body that you touch multiple times a day? Or maybe most people piss on themselves? I wash my hands but mainly because it is a social norm but I think it's dumb.

    Some of the better ones I don't mind, but generally I prefer good old fashioned paper towels.

    I wash my hands BEFORE I take a piss.
    Little Anthony was clean when I put him in my pants this morning, and he hasn't been anywhere to get dirty that I don't know of... but my hands have been a bunch of places that I wouldn't want to lick.

    And even if you piss yourself... urine is sterile.
    The bacteria and shit grow in it later.


    On the air dryers, the only kind that I like is the Dyson Airblade.

    But never washing your hands after peeing is nasty.

    This thread is getting a little off topic, I am not a fan of hand dryers because I usually open the door with a paper towel. Also, they take way to long to heat up.

    Hell I rarely wash my hand after taking a dump. I smell my hand and if it doesn't smell like I got shit on my hand I skip the sink.

    I'm like Al Bundy with my hand down my undies watching TV and typing this one handed on my laptop on the recliner.

    Who washes their hand after jerking off? My wife washes my socks. :eek:

    The only hand dryers that I like are the Dyson with the yellow squeege thing. Those are real nice dryers. If it is not those, I would rather have my paper towels.

    Not only do they suck, but why only 1 in each restroom? As I stated in my original post, most rooms have at least 3 sinks!:frusty:
