Why Don't We Have That at Home?

Three of my favourite inventions that make life in Italy that little bit easier:

Dividers at the checkouts in the supermarkets. When the checkout person has scanned your stuff and you've paid, they can push your stuff into one section and start scanning the next customer's things so that you don't have to worry about taking your time over packing your bags and holding everyone else up.

My dish-drying cupboard. The perfect invention for people who are too proud to have dishes on show and too lazy to dry them with a dish towel.

Bidets. When it's hot and dusty they're good for all kinds of washing, but especially your feet. And when it's cold, you can revert to British traveller mode and dump the washing in them.
