household would have their own job to do. For example, because

there was no indoor plumbing if you had to go to the bathroom in the

middle of the night there was a pot called a chamber pot that you

would use. A chamber pot was stored under your bed. If you needed

to use bbbbbbbbbbbb it you would pull it out and use it.
