During one of her daily lessons, a teacher trying to teach good manners, asks her students the following question: “Michael, If you were on a date having dinner with a nice young lady, how would you tell her that you have to go to the bathroom?”
Michael says “Just a minute, I have to go pee.”
The teacher responds by saying, “That would be rude and impolite. What about you, Sherman, how would you say it?”
Sherman says, “I am sorry, but I really need to go to the bathroom. I’ll be right back.”
“That’s better, but it’s still not very nice to say the word bathroom at dinner table. And you, little Edward, can you use your brain for once and show us your good manners?”
“I would say, ‘Darling, may I please be excused for a moment? I have to shake hands with a very dear friend of mine, whom I hope to introduce to you after dinner.”
The teacher faints.
