Michael said, “Just a minute I have to go pee.”
The teacher responded by saying, “I’m sorry Michael, but that would be rude and impolite.”
“What about you Peter, how would you say it?”, the teacher asked.
Peter said, “I am sorry, but I really need to go to the bathroom. I’ll be right back.”
“That’s better”, the teacher replied, “but it’s still not very nice to say the word bathroom at the dinner table.”
“And you, little Johnny, can you use your brain for once and show us your good manners?”
Little Johnny replied, “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 you’ll get to meet after dinner.”
The teacher fainted.
