Ever been in a tight spot where the right words escaped you, but you knew silence wasn't an option? Maybe it was during those school days when you suddenly became the center of everyone's attention. This exact situation unfolded for these students who were posed with a tricky, albeit realistic, question. While they all tried to find a solution, one boy's response was simply unforgettable.
In an attempt to instill good manners, a teacher presented her students with a scenario…
"Michael, imagine you're enjoying dinner with a lovely young lady. How would you tell her that you need to use the restroom?"
Michael candidly responded: "Just a minute, I need to go pee."
The teacher, slightly taken aback, replied: "That's rather blunt and impolite. How about you, Sherman? What would you say?"
Sherman offered: "I'm sorry, but I really have to visit the restroom. I'll be right back."
The teacher acknowledged, "That's a step in the right direction, but mentioning the restroom at the dinner table isn't ideal. Now, Johnny, think this through and demonstrate some manners, will you?"
Johnny confidently said: "I would say: Darling, may I please be excused for a moment? I have to shake hands with a very dear friend of mine, who I hope to introduce you to after dinner."
