Toilets and changing rooms

Not the most savory of topics but one that really gets me going.  Here is why: sometimes I just want to yell out WTF.
Point 1

Visited a religious site and the sinks had really short faucets, such that the space to wash your hands was so small that a slight shudder would cause you to put your hands in the drain-thus negating the washing of the hands effect.

Point 2

Why do doors swing in?  I get it, people might swing the door open and give someone a frontal clothesline, but when there is enough space to fit a truck in the bathroom, why skimp on space for the door. Also I am convinced that only skinny people can use these bathrooms.  Getting in and out involves a tightrope act.
Point 3

Where is the soap?

Changing tables/rooms

I experienced  my second chaining room at Newark Airport.  It was just enough to fit the carriage and do what I needed to do.  There were the normal changing tables attached but mounted on top of the counter versus the ones that open from the wall.  The room was tidy, but right in the flipping terminal-like right by the seats.  Okay so that does not bother me.

( my first was Nordstrom)

My fourth and rather impressive was the changing room in Ikea in Portugal.  What a difference a week makes.  Picture this if you can-

Mood lighting

Two chairs

Cool sink

Roll of paper like the doctors office to cover the changing table

A wide wooden changing table than folded out such that your child’s body is perpendicular to yours-a T.

Diaper pale like you have at home

Separate area with door
Three stars for Ikea.  When are we going to wake up!

I even visited a winery and they directed me to the changing room/handicap access room.
Yeah, changing rooms. đź‘Ť
