Good Manners

 During one of her classes, a teacher trying to teach good manners, asked er her students the following question:
'Steven, 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?'

Steven said,
 'Just a minute I have to go pee.'

 The teacher responded by saying, '
 That would be rude and impolite.
 What about you 
Adam, how would you say it?'

Adam said,
 '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 the
 dinner table. And you, 
Smith, can you use your brains for once, and
 show us any good manners that you may have?'

 'I would say: Darling, please may I be excused for a moment?
 I have to shake hands with a very close friend of mine
 from down under, whom I hope to introduce to you, after dinner.'

 Teacher promptly fainted.
