I walked into the bathroom at the Daily Grind and washed my hands.

I turned off the sink, stepped over to the paper towel dispenser and waved my hand in front of it.

Nothing happened.

I waved at it again.

Still nothing.

A man never feels more humbled than the moment he realizes that he’s been waving at a manual paper towel dispenser.

    i remember being at disney world and eating at future world’s (or whatever they call its) cafeteria when i was in my early teens. i went to the bathroom and the toilets were automatic, the sink was automatic, and the hand dryer was automatic. upon exiting the bathroom i walked up to the water bubbler and just stood there waiting for a drink… until i realized i had to press a damn button. not very consistent.

    Good thing it didn’t wave back. That’d be pretty weird.
