Why the Long Line at Women's Restrooms?

Why the Long Line at Women's Restrooms?

Have you noticed that the lines for women's public bathrooms are always longer than men's? Is it because we check our hair and makeup? Is it the sitting down thing? Or maybe it's because we actually WASH our hands when we're done? Sorry guys, I am just trying to figure this out.

Those may seem like fairly reasonable explanations, but the truth is, women's bladders are physically smaller than men's. Nothing exotic in the reason, but size does matter. Smaller bladders fill up more quickly, so we have to empty them more often than men do.

Well, with all that said, it looks like women's restrooms need to have more toilets to solve the ever-annoying problem of waiting in long lines.
