    You ever notice the hand motion sink faucets seemed to start out more in the northern states where water is abundant but you could get down into Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California and turn on the water and walk away if you wanted to. California being under such an extreme drought, I heard they are going to the buddy system. You wouldn't be able to take a shower til you had a 'teammate' which is gonna be another random trucker coming in for his shower, you'll buddy up and share the water; it's all for conservation.

    See, I'm one of those grown responsible adults. I like to balance my hot water with cold water so as not to get burned. I don't need a label to tell me to do so.

    Well if they're going to let any low-level employee have access to the water heater equipment and set the water temperature to whatever dangerous level they may decide to, maybe they NEED to have such a warning posted at the sinks. Hot water is one thing, extremely hot water approaching boiling temperature [at the tap] is another.

    And let's be honest, many of the sink control valves are quirky at best, and each one has it's own set position required to get a prescribed water temperature, and, you never know if the water in the supply line near your sink is at full temperature or not.

    I guess we will be talking about electric paper towel dispensers on a next thread.

    I'm sure they'll get right on that...most these places won't empty a trash can until it's well past overflowing, and can't seem to keep more than 1 paper towel dispenser working...I am sure fixing the plumbing is on their "round tuit" list...as in they will fix it when the get a "round tuit'

    You sissified truckers. I get the used coffee grounds out of the trash and eat them with a spoon. Keeps me alert all day.
