Inventions that should never have been invented

#1 - bathroom faucets that only turn on by sensor.  Just too dang annoying trying to find that sweet spot when you just want to wash your hands in some stadium or station.
#2 - automated phone answering.  I don't mind the intro parts "Please give your employee #", but would be nice if all systems gave a "14 minutes of waiting time is facing you."  What i especially dislike is when a system switches from music to a message "thank you for holding.  continue to wait for a human."  Gets your hopes up that "This is it - my waiting is over!" but it's just a tease.
