Bad UX in the wild

I don’t know if its the sites I’ve been visiting, but I’ve noticed a lot of badly designed experiences online recently. Here are just a couple from the last few weeks.

Limiting available options unnecessarily

Problem: Asking me what floor I currently live on, but only accepting numbers. Well I live on the ground floor. What am I meant to write?

Solution: Let the user write the floor and not restrict the available type of characters.

A drop down when there is only one available option?

Solution: Remove the drop down, its unnecessary.

Which is the primary intended route?
