HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE TERM PISS POOR

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to pee in a pot. Once a day it was taken and sold to the tannery.

if you had to do this to survive you were "piss poor". but worse than that were the really poor folks who couldn't even afford to buy a pot. They "didn't have a pot to piss in"  and were considered the lowest of low.

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water.  The man of the house had the privilege of nice clean water, then all the sons and men, then the woman, and finally the children. Last  of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water".

Whoever said history is boring??????
