Yeah, I really hate those dispensers. They expect you to pull on something with wet hands that is just going to tear easily once you grab it. It's gotta be the worst design on the planet.

What the hell ever happened to just keeping things simple? Maybe you remember or maybe you don't, but there used to be towel dispenser that had a crank with rollers. Just grab the crank, rotate it out for the amount of paper you want, then tear it off. Easy, simple, mechanically robust, always worked.

For a lot of stuff, the problem is two fold: First, they gotta make things break so you'll have to buy more of 'em, and second, they have to constantly change things on them (usually to worse solution) to make you either have to buy the new model because old consumables are no longer available or no longer fit - or just to make you think that if you keep the old stuff around, you are no longer "cutting edge" or whatnot.

Basically the automotive sales model.
