Up or down?

You're thirsty and you see a water cooler. You grab one of the styrofoam cups next to machine and hold it under the nozzle, licking your parched lips in anticipation of that cool, refreshing water. But before you can fill your cup you must make a very important decision.

Do you lift the lever up or press it down?

    I voted down but almost immediately realized I actually usually pull it up?

    but I haven't used one of them in a while so I don't remember.

    Lift it mostly, I guess. Depends on whether I'm using one hand or two.

    For cold beverages I go down

    For hot beverages I go up

    So the only true option is Larlar

    Similar for me, but the other way around. I hold the cup with my palm, thumb, and last 2 fingers, and pull the lever down with my index finger .

    the thing locks in place if you flip it up far enough! that's less strain on my fingers.

    Lifting is superior because you usually can lift it up and then let it go and it will keep running. But if you press it down then you're stuck holding it until you've got enough.

    I can't handle the responsibility of initiating a process that will run indefinitely unless I make an additional act to stop it

    gotta do it the deadman switch way

    I push it down because I'm always afraid if I flip it up I'll somehow overfill my drink by not flipping it back down in time.

    Pushing it down allows me to apply exactly as much water as I want.
