unusability (continued)

OK - irritation of the nation.... cannot seemingly post to own
previous thread on here... unless I'm mentally challenged (which
could well and truly be the case).

Anyhoo, this is a continuation of the post

I've set up a blog to start a Blacklist / rant / irrtation session.

I find it's quite cathartic to vent ;)

Unusable things

OK - so we work in the world of digital. Here the affordance is a
perceived one. But what about our real lives?

Here's the thing - I want to start a list of unusable real life
things....

1. Elevator buttons: when I press the wrong floor (which is quite the
frequent occasion in my uncaffienated state before 12pm) why can't I
"unpress" my mistake?

2. Toilet doors: why does one open in and the next out. Furthermore -
why wash your hands when you must touch germ-ridden door handles after
the fact? If there is ever a need to have automatic doors - here it
is.
