Reply To: Why do they do that?!

Thank you for the opportunity of putting my rant out in public.


1. What is it with hotel shower designers that give you a shower that it impossible to reach into to turn the water on without getting wet? Usually with icy cold water? While you may well be in your pjs?!

2. What is it with the super sleek ridiculously complicated no instructions tap ware? Can’t there just be one hot one cold? Preferably that says which is which.

3. Panel /iPad/sensor controlled room lighting systems. Just a simple switch will do please not a master plan meant for world domination just a simple switch to turn the light out. This real frustration ended in future zero tolerance after recent experience in super duper hi tech Dubai after arriving from New York, fed up and tired I could not turn the lights out. Every time I moved the sensor sensed me and turned them all back on! After 20 minutes gave up, slapped on my excellent emirates eye pads and saw … Darkness. And yes, got a freezing blast in the shower next morning complete with overhead disco lights!
