The UX of the Bathroom Sink

Not any bathroom sink; this is the sink in the bathroom at my work.  I use it several times a day.  Take a look.

Notice where the water comes out.  It’s all the way to the left edge.  Notice the size of the sink.  90% of the sink is wasted space.  All of the water is on the far left.  When you wash your hands water splashes to the left out of the sink regularly.  You can’t put your hands in the middle and get them wet.  Why would anyone do this?  What kind of sick maniac would design a sink that can only be used in an uncomfortable and messy way? Just look at it!

Design is more than aesthetics.  Design is decisions.  In this case, this is just a horrible decision.
