Inconsiderate twat insists on drying hands thoroughly despite queue forming behind him in toilet


man drying hands in toilet

A man has had the gall to use the hand dryer in a busy public toilet for such a long time that his hands actually became dry.

The man, who witnesses described as having zero regards for social etiquette was quite happy to let people queue behind him in a public toilet as he comprehensively dried his hands.

Simon Williams was in that queue.

“I went to the toilet, washed my hands and waited to use the dryer,” he said.

“Then I waited. And waited. And I waited.

“I could hear the dryer repeatedly start and stop but the queue wasn’t moving. What the hell was going on?

“Now, everyone knows that those things aren’t supposed to dry your hands properly. That’s why they cut out after seven seconds. The correct response is to immediately walk away wiping your still extremely wet hands on your trousers. That’s what normal people do.

“But the guy at the front of the queue – when the dryer stopped, instead of taking it as his cue to leave he just put his hands in it again to finish drying properly!

“I don’t know if he was rude or just had balls of steel but he wasn’t going anywhere until his fingers had reached peak aridity.”

Hand dryer designer James Dyson laughed when he heard the story.

“Oh my Lord! He’d have been there all day!

“Hand dryers don’t actually do anything except play a short sound effect of blowing air.

“I make loads of money from them though – they’re my best invention yet!”
