Unfortunate Trend: Half-Wall Bath Screens

Unfortunate Trend: Half-Wall Bath Screens

I've stayed in several hotels lately that no longer use shower curtains in their bathrooms, but instead, have rotating sheets of glass to enclose the mere three feet of space closest to the showerhead.

Sure, the glass looks pretty, but its functionality leaves something to be desired. Maybe it's just my lack of coordination, or maybe it's because I'm cold and spastic in the absence of a mist cocoon, but when in these situations I always end up flooding the bathroom floor. Am I challenged, or is this really bad design?

End of rant.
