The Push Down Sink Knob

You know the sinks in some public bathrooms where you have to push the knob instead of turn it... and after about 5-10 seconds the water stops?

I wonder if those faucets achieve anything other than frustration. I assume they are supposed to save water. And maybe they do by discouraging people to wash their hands for as long! But I find that I have to push the knob down a BUNCH of times to get the soap off my hands. And when I have to push it down 1 more final time for just a second or two to get the last little bit off... the water just keeps running after I am done. So really... it achieves nothing. If I could control the water myself, I would have just turned it off when I was done... and it wouldn't still be going!

Apparently the people who made those did NOT watch the Today show the morning where they said to sing "Happy Birthday" to yourself, TWICE, while washing your hands... that's approximately how long you should wash them. :)

Oh well. Just the musings of my trip to Pei Wei tonight. :)

Peace. Love. Fiddle.

I'd love to see Kramer slide in to the sink and do a shtick on what you described : )

I greatly prefer a lever faucet control, just nudge it with the outside of your finger or back of your hand and then you don't get the knob jerms.

I'm not a total germ nerd, I've helped at accidents and stuff, but I use precaution when I can, like using a paper towel to open the bathroom door at public places.

Did you know sneeze germs can travel 18 feet ? I guess I am a germ nerd : )

WHOA! 18 Feet?? REALLY!?!?! That's a LOOONG way. I love doors without handles in bathrooms so you can push it with your forearm and not have to get you newly clean hands all dirty.

I'm not a germ nerd... but Mamma and my sister are... so I get LOTS of good advice :)
