the toilets rather than the outside ones because unlike the outside
ones which are fairly speedy the internal ones are fucking shite.
The newer looking Scotrail trains seem to be the worst offenders to
me, there are 2 doors between each carriage, the first one opens
fairly quickly, but there's this delay of several seconds before the
2nd deigns to open leading to impatience and the feeling of looking
like a dick.
Toilet doors are worse, they emit this loud hiss like a tremendous
amount of pressure has been released then they open explosively for 2
inches before slowing to drunk tortoise pace. And once you're in it's
the same again. Most people could be in out and had a dump in the time
it takes these doors to get open and closed.
I can see the practicality in them - they shut on their own thus they
don't flap open if people neglect to close them properly. However I
can't help but feel doors you could manually open that would
automatically close if neglected would be a superior solution. Hell,
they could even have motors for the infirm, but for those of us with
fully functioning limbs and a low threshold for unnecessary waiting,
how about a handle?
freedoms_stain, fuck patience, out.
