Out Houses

 Recently my DD asked me why the out house we used was set up for two people to use at a time.  Got me thinking about what the reasons might be for two or even three hole out houses.  I know when we had our cabin the out house there was a two seater, we just used the extra one for the slop bucket.  Which is what I explained to her.  But really why would you need a three seater?  Any one really know the story or idea behind these?

 Yes at our cabin we had one, they also have one with three seats at the little country store down the road from our cabin.  At scout camps they have outhouses for campers to use, some are two or three seaters with little wood walls between them and others are single with door for woman to use when camping.  I also never understood locking the outhouse door when you are not there until someone said teens will go inside and tear up the seating area.

 Now that I can see and makes since.  When my boys and nephew were little (4 & 5)  All four boys decided they needed to go in the outhouse and stick their heads in the hole to see what was in there and where it went.
