Today's design gripe: the water bottle filling stations at Naples airport. You put your water bottle down and it slooooowly dispenses a trickle of water that will eventually fill your water bottle up.

Or it would, if it didn't stop after about 200ml. To make it continue you have to pick the water bottle up and put it down again. While a queue builds up behind you.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that you can't stand in front of it. That activates the drinking fountain part. So you have to awkwardly stand to the side for ages, repeatedly picking up your water bottle, while there are 10 people behind you waiting to do the same thing.

@gbrnt the one at work sometimes locks itself on because its own water stream activates its sensor
