Why are there usually two sinks in a Jack & Jill bathroom?
We are all familiar with those bathrooms that are located between two bedrooms—shared by two bedrooms. My question has to do with their typically being two sinks in them. With two sinks, I could see calling them Jack & Jim Bathrooms or Jill & Jane Bathrooms, but how often will both sinks get used at the same time once Jack & Jill want some privacy?
I guess the “slob factor” might come into play, making it nice for each to have their own sink. I think in that case I might rather have my own toilet!
Any of us that have experienced teenagers know that “privacy time” and “slob factor time” comes sooner or later.
But this whole question is really just an aside, an excuse, to show you Jack’s bathroom that I inspected the other day.
Unfortunately I had to inspect the bathroom with Jack still in it.
He would not leave.
It kind of looked as if he was not going to be leaving any time soon either.
The slope that the jack is pushing agains looks a bit sketchy and sooner or later physics is going to come into play and Jack will be forcibly removed from the bathroom.
