  1. The narcissistic whore of Windsor died on one of her drug binges while out sleeping around and partying. It was the only good thing she ever did.

    I have zero time for those who idolise the gold digging manipulate slut. They are no better than Ardernites.

  2. Morning Troopers,
    Michael Wood is a serious fucking Mong. Does he think that busy parents, struggling to pay for the groceries, are sitting around all day, waiting to wander down to school, in all weathers, to escort Little Johnny home.

    “Transport Minister Michael Wood plans to give councils the power to ban cars on roads at certain times and remove kerbside parking in favour of cycleways and bus lanes – without prior consultation.
    Wood also wants councils to restrict traffic outside schools to encourage parents and children to walk and cycle – improving exercise safety”

      • TJF, “where does labour find these plonkers” The same place the labour party found horseface Ardern, at the sheltered workshops sitting in the corner by herself drooling and repeating something about “if I’d known that’s what it was for I wouldn’t have let daddy play with it so much”. The POS has cost me and my Mrs tens of thousands of dollars in the last 18 months from her neglect of the hospital system,the fucking bitch and her $10,000 a week salary.

    • When The Rot Started.

      Can you imagine the difference it would be today if women were to be seen and not heard? Cindy and all her cabal of female sycophants would not have the power that they today. Not all women are in this category, but its a bit late to try and revert to the mores of 100 years ago

      This from 1872, the Supreme Court Case of Brddwell V. Illinois, in which the court held that Myra Bradwell could be denied the right to practice law because she was a woman.

      “The civil law, as well as nature herself, has always recognized a wide difference in the respective spheres and destinies of man and woman. Man is, or should be, woman’s protector and defender. The natural and proper timidity and delicacy which belongs to the female sex evidently unfits it for many of the occupations of civil life. The Constitution of the family organization, which is founded in the divine ordinance as well as in the nature of things, indicates the domestic sphere as that which properly belongs to the domain and functions of womanhood. The harmony, not to say identity, of interest and views which belong, or should belong, to the family institution is repugnant to the idea of a woman adopting a distinct and independent career from that of her husband. So firmly fixed was this sentiment in the founders of the common law that it became a maxim of that system of jurisprudence that a woman had no legal existence separate from her husband, who was regarded as her head and representative in the social state, and, notwithstanding some recent modifications of this civil status, many of the special rules of law flowing from and dependent upon this cardinal principle still exist in full force in most states. One of these is that a married woman is incapable, without her husband’s consent, of making contracts which shall be binding on her or him. This very incapacity was one circumstance which the Supreme Court of Illinois deemed important in rendering a married woman incompetent fully to perform the duties and trusts that belong to the office of an attorney and counselor.

      It is true that many women are unmarried and not affected by any of the duties, complications, and incapacities arising out of the married state, but these are exceptions to the general rule. The paramount destiny and mission of woman are to fulfill the noble and benign offices of wife and mother. This is the law of the Creator.”

  3. Okay. So yesterday I was wondering how bad our economy really is, so a did some digging up numbers.
    This is what I’ve found and correct me if I have any assumptions wrong. (And I assume I have heap of stuff wrong. This is back of a yellow post it stuff).
    The 2022 GDP of New Zealand is $355 billion. Government spending as part of GDP is 41.68%.
    This year our government is going to borrow an extra $25-30 billion dollars. (From treasury budget).
    That’s equal to 7-8% of GDP.
    Total expenses for govt for 2022 is estimated $154 billion. 2021 was $133 billion. An increase of 13%. 154-133=21. So an increase of at least $21 billion.
    21/355=5.9% of GDP is new government spending.
    Before Labour came into office, we had a budget surplus.
    By my reckoning if our Growth for the June quarter is not over 1.47% we are in a recession, with extra government spending which is just borrowing, being the base 1.47% for the quarter?
    Have I figured that shit out wrong?

    • You forgot to factor in their fuckery of changing how debt/gdp is measured. Dont know if that tweaks with your numbers but i know robo will dispute your 41.68% claims and insist its mid 20s.

      Nzs ecconomy has been in recession several times over the last 3yrs but the govt has just blown lots of money to give an illussion all is rosey eg. Spend 120billion yet only to get a few billion boost in gdp. False economy.

      Plus theyll take bidens lead and deny its recession and just call it a transition.

    • Like when Michael Cullen was finance minister the NZ public won’t know the state of the books until Labour are turfed out only to discover the cupboard is bare and a debt note is left telling us how much we all owe.

      Political parties come together to demand answers on Government’s economic response
      https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/08/covid-19-political-parties-come-together-to-demand-answers-on-government-s-economic-response.html

      The Labour Party has blocked attempts for an independent inquiry into the Government’s COVID-19 economic response for more than five months.
      In a last-ditch attempt, members from all other political parties have written to the Minister of Finance to demand answers.

      It’s not often you see National, the Green Party, Te Pāti Māori, and ACT teaming up, so when they do it’s a big deal.

      For months now the opposition parties have been calling for an inquiry into the Government’s COVID-19 economic response.

      But there’s yet to be buy-in from the man in charge of our books.

      • For what ever:— Sam Uffindell is his forte investigating bank fraud.
        Getting past Grant Robinson should be a breeze.
        Unleash that dog of war!

        … After university, he worked in banking for ten years in Sydney and in Singapore, including working in financial crime at Westpac and becoming vice president at Deutsche Bank.[6][7]
        Also during this time he received a Master of International Law and International Relations from the University of New South Wales.[7]
        Uffindell returned to New Zealand in 2020 following the COVID-19 pandemic.
        As of early 2022 he was the head of financial economic crime for Rabobank and owned an agribusiness. …

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Uffindell

        So one should think, that once he gets the data, information, sorting out Grant Robertson finances, Mahuta’s finances, etc., should be child’s play, and those bed legs may well prove handy in Parliament.
        All power to him in this field. 🙂

  4. So that notable piece of shit,ex Labour MP, known bully an ZUnion Official doesn’t like the truth being said.
    Labour backbencher Gaurav Sharma has been blasted as ill-disciplined by a former Labour MP, who says she was “appalled” at his “mouthing off in the media”.

    The broadside came from the Facebook account of Darien Fenton, a Labour MP from 2005 to 2014, and was sent via a private message. Sharma posted screenshots of the messages and posted them in replies to his own Facebook page.

    The messages related to Sharma’s decision to publish a column in the Herald in which he alleged there was an environment of bullying at Parliament, including within his own party.

    Sharma took aim at Parliamentary Service, the party whips’ offices and leaders, saying bullying was “rampant”.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/parliament-bullying-claims-ex-labour-mp-attacks-gaurav-sharma-for-ill-discipline-and-mouthing-off-in-media/WRAFJWQBAOWYGB3HFFMKCVQZTY/

    Great reply.
    Sharma then rebuffed Fenton’s criticism of not using appropriate channels to raise concerns, saying he had “made multiple complaints including to the PMO [Prime Minister’s Office] over the last 1.5 years and nothing has been done”.

    Sharma has only been an MP since the 2020 election. This timeframe would mean he began complaining to the Prime Minister’s Office about half a year after entering Parliament.

    “What’s appalling is that despite being a former MP and a union representative you want to victimise me instead of asking the party what they did about the bully.”

    “Have a hard look at yourself in the mirror. You are the reason bullying is still a problem,” Sharma wrote.

    She was/Is a nasty bitch and will go to her grave the same way she lived.
    Of course they will deselct him or toss him out of Parliament before the next election.
    He has offended the woke women of Labour.

    sometimes I think we would be better with more educated Indians in our system. These ones with Pommy backgrounds are always bloody feral.

  5. National’s leaders have condemned the apparent hanging of women’s underwear as trophies in the former Dunedin flat of under-fire MP Sam Uffindell.

    Noi where have they nor can they establish that Sam was responsible for that nor has anyone said the actually the flat was one of Kea’s and Nnaaqska favourite landlords. In those days there were no standards, the uni never bothered with student standards nor accommodation,.
    This whole behaviour shoes the sleaze of the Labour side and the gutlessnes of the Nats.
    Neither should be allowed to Govern currently.
    for Labour this is inbred behaviour from before the party was born. Slags from the old Country and Ireland running their class wars.
    The Nats. busily concerned with power to contain that class war.
    People matter not to either lot unless they can be convinced to install them in Govt.
    Fentons attempt to silence Sharma is good example of the Labour ethics and Luxflakes attempt to attack his friends instead of his enemy shows his poor character.
    We deserve a better system that that.

  6. o hearses have been seen leaving a Clendon Park property where a large number of police, including forensic staff in boiler suits, have been since Thursday afternoon.

    An RNZ reporter had earlier seen a body being loaded into a hearse, and a neighbour told the Herald they understood a body had been found at the Moncrieff Ave property.

    Police would only confirm they’re responding to an “incident” at the South Auckland property and there was no immediate risk to the public in relation to that.

  7. Teacher asked the children what their Mums did for a living. All the typical answers came up… Nurse, Postie, policewoman, saleswoman,etc.
    Neave, a girl with a blond mop of hair, was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the Teacher asked her about her Mum.
    ‘My Mums an exotic dancer in a bar and takes off all her clothes in front of men. Sometimes, if the offer is really good, she’ll go out to the back lane and have sex with them for money.”
    The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some colouring, and took little Neave aside to ask her, ‘Is that really true about your mum?’
    ‘No,’ said Neave, ‘She’s just resigned as the PM, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids.’

  11. Food prices increased 7.4% in July 2022 compared to the same time last year, according to the latest figures from Statistics New Zealand.
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/08/12/food-prices-increase-74-in-last-year-stats-nz/

    Compared with July 2021, the 10% price increase for fruit and vegetables was the highest. It was followed by meat, poultry, and fish prices, which increased by 7.7%; grocery food prices, which increased by 7.5%; restaurant meals and ready-to-eat food prices, which rose 6.6%; and non-alcoholic beverage prices, which went up by 4.6%.

    The biggest contributor to the movement was grocery food prices, which were influenced by the increasing cost for cheddar cheese, yoghurt and standard two-litre milk, Stats NZ’s consumer prices manager Fiona Smillie said.

  12. Did ypu know?

    “Any incident reported to police which suggests a firearm is involved is taken extremely seriously, and we remind the public that they should expect police to respond accordingly to such reports,” the spokesperson said.

    Meanwhile, Parliament last night passed the Firearms Prohibition Order Legislation Bill that empowers courts to ban anyone convicted of specific crimes – including murder and some family violence offences – from accessing or using guns.

    The Government said it would reduce firearms-related crime by targeting those most likely to use guns illegally.

    Courts will be able to impose a firearms prohibition order – or FPO – that lasts 10 years, and it will be an offence to breach the conditions of this order.

        • najh fuck it, its worth reading in full

          Over the last 24hours many of you would have read the op-ed I wrote in NZ Herald. I want to start by thanking a large number of you who have contacted me from across the country with support. I have also had a few people who have tried to harass me without knowing the fully story. Due to being busy with constituent work and more recent matters I haven’t had much time to follow the comments on social media, but from what I have seen there are many genuine questions out there. In order to give context to the issues I raised yesterday, I am sharing the following timeline of events:
          ⁃Before I took my oath I was assigned a Relationship Manager by Parliamentary Services to look after me and my staffing levels. This person had a direct conflict of interest in their role due to being a Labour member who had tried to stop me getting selected as a candidate. I raised this on Day 0 with a senior Parliamentary Manager who assured me that this would never be an issue.
          ⁃In February 2021 I had an underperforming staff member but instead of listening to my concerns, this was actively turned into a major project by the Labour Party Whips to bring me into disrepute and to rein me in. I sat in meetings after meetings being told I was doing a terrible job and that 9/10 times the MP is a bully so we refuse to listen to anything you have to say. I wrote numerous emails to Parliamentary Services and Whips Office asking for support, providing significant evidence of underperformance by a staff member but I was told in clear words “if you are staying up and working until 3am, you should work until 5am to make up for your staff’s incompetence.” Issues I raised involved staff being drunk at work, not showing up to work, being sent on leave without any notice or approval, and a significant wastage of taxpayer’s money. But all I was told was that I need to shut up and do a mentoring course on managing people. I had hundreds of pages to prove that my staff wasn’t doing the work they were hired to do and it affected my ability to provide services to my constituents but I was never listened to. The main bully was Kieran McAnulty who kept gaslighting me, shouting at me, degrading me in front of caucus members and other attendees at events and telling me that I was a terrible MP. His staff members at the Whips Office were the same. One of the most clearest examples was on the night of the America’s Cup final race where he asked me to come to his room for a meeting on a very short notice, but when I got there I was advised that he had to be in an important meeting so couldn’t make it. I spent close to 2 hours sitting with Kieran McAnulty’s staff in his office being told how terrible a manager I was, with no right of reply. But what was most sickening was that when I came out I saw photos of him drinking and celebrating the America’s Cup final while I sat in his office like a school kid at the headmaster’s office.
          ⁃In August 2021 I found that a Member of Parliament of the Labour Party and a Parliamentary staff member (also a Labour Member) were misusing taxpayer’s money. As someone who took an oath to uphold and protect the interests of this country I raised my concerns with the Relationship Manager at Parliamentary Services. Instead of protecting my identity and looking into this matter, Parliamentary Services forwarded my concerns to the Labour Party Whips and alerted them of what I had said.
          ⁃Following this incidence, I was put through further bullying. I was told by then Junior Whip Duncan Webb that what I did was wrong and I should be ashamed of myself. I was told that it was lucky that this Parliamentary Services Relationship Manager (who I had raised issues re conflict of interest on day 0) who is also a Labour Party member informed the Whips Office, because it could have fallen into the wrong hands which could have caused trouble. I was then told by Duncan Webb that an accusation like this could mean that the government could get into trouble, lose the election etc and such issues needed to be contained rather than discussed freely. I was then told by Duncan Webb in clear terms that “the only way this country can succeed is if Labour is in government. Government means Labour. So the Party comes first and foremost before the country.” The matter was never looked into and everything was hushed.
          ⁃Due to my outspoken stance on squandering of taxpayers money and other policy issues I was further bullied. I was called to last minute meetings with no notice and no support person (but once when I managed to take a caucus colleague with me).
          ⁃My staffing issues created through the mismanagement of the Whips Office and Parliamentary Services continued. My messages to the Parliamentary Services Relationship Manager were often not returned and I was repeatedly deflected to instead sort it out with the Whips.The same Whips who would bully me and had no legal right to begin with in a triangular relationship between Parliamentary Services (employer), my staff (employee) and myself (day-to-day-manager). I went to the Manager’s Manager but nothing came out of it. I went to the CEO of Parliamentary Services, I wrote emails and made calls – I was promised support to help with the staffing issue but all I got was silence. Many weeks after meeting the CEO I was told that I should go back and talk to the Whips.
          Slowly I fell into a cycle of stress, depression and lack of hope as I found myself stuck. I remember one of my former patients sending me very kind message on World Mental Health Day about how I had helped her as a doctor a while ago. I thought to myself about how despite listening to and assisting many of my constituents with bullying and harassment issues, I had to put a bold face up as I struggled everyday with the thought of contemplating suicide. The Labour Party Whips Office and the Parliamentary Services removed all my mānā and didn’t give me any fair process to express my concerns. Slowly I started withdrawing from all the social events in Wellington. Every time I saw my bully Kieran McAnulty speak or smile, it made me sad and angry at the system and the process.
          ⁃I came to a point in 2021 where I advised Duncan Webb that I had had enough, and because I hadn’t received the support and justice I had been seeking I would go to the media to present the whole issue and tell them how I was being mistreated and there was no investigation into serious claims I had made about the incompetence of a staff member. This is the first time they listened. I was told that they would fly up to Hamilton and talk to me face to face to resolve my issues, which I declined because I had been in meetings after meetings with them for months with no resolution. Their solution included paying a severance pay from taxpayer’s purse to a person who had been repeatedly underperforming. I refused on principle, doing this would mean a double wastage of public money. I kept being pushed to concede but I refused. Eventually they cut a deal with the staff member to encourage them to resign from my office (I did not pay this person out because I stood by my claims which were never and still haven’t been investigated).
          ⁃After this, the bullying continued in many ways, simplest of which was a freeze on hiring staff. I challenged this and asked them to openly and fairly investigate my claims. But it was refused. For months on end I continued to be short staffed in providing support and services to my constituents who deserved better. I was told that I wasn’t an employee of the Labour Party, or its caucus or Parliamentary Services. My employers were the constituents – but my resourcing was halted by the Labour Party Whips – who were not legally even part of the triangular relationship. A fourth wheel which I continued to challenge shouldn’t be able to make decisions for my constituents especially when they were themselves the bully. When I tried to contact the Parliamentary Services they stopped taking my calls or replying to emails, instead again asking me to talk to the Whips.
          ⁃I went the only place I felt I could to seek help in December 2021. The Prime Ministers’ Office. The advice was always clear – do not give anything in writing and do not expect anything in writing. Everything can be OIA’ed. So I met the Chief of Staff of PMO for over an hour of meeting which was supposed to be only a 30mins appointment. I took with me hundreds of pages of evidence – emails, timelines, issues etc to explain my case. I very clearly said that Kieran McAnulty was a bully. That I was being bullied. That other caucus members were being bullied by Kieran McAnulty. Few weeks after the meeting when I had not heard from PMO, I contacted the PMO with a written complaint on 18th of December 2021. An investigation was never done. My bully still walks the halls of power with his head held up high, while a “messenger from Caucus” advised me yesterday after my op-ed in Herald that I should take the basement exit and try to avoid Parliament. The kick in the guts however is that despite raising concerns about Kieran McAnulty, not only by me but as I understand by other members of the caucus too (which I had clearly said to the PMO) he was promoted to being a Minister of the Crown. This is our justice.
          ⁃The issues with Parliamentary Services are even more complex & detailed and have continued. My current staff member has also raised significant concerns about the support from Parliamentary Services and has essentially been ghosted and stone walled. They have had no support in terms of expectation settings & annual review and have been underpaid for a significant amount of time. They went on to raise similar concerns as me re the Relationship Manager (the Labour member with conflict of interest) but it was only after 17months that this person was removed but never investigated for a serious breach of confidentiality (in my case raising concerns re taxpayers money) and in other cases re appropriate support and training.
          ⁃I know that some people think that I had for some reason tried to time this with what was happening with the issues at the National Party but that is far from the truth. I was told in an email in May by Parliamentary Services that there had never been an investigation against me despite me asking for an official review on multiple incidences. In April this year I contacted a range of lawyers in Wellington and eventually engaged someone to help me draft a legal challenge to the issues I had been facing. I was open about this to the Parliamentary Services and the Labour Whips from the moment I hired the lawyer but they thought I was bluffing. Due to a recent overseas trip and the staff shortage it has taken me a bit longer than I had anticipated to put together all the notes for my grievances and concerns (I am at 40+pages but still writing). Last week I had written to a new Manager at Parliamentary Services asking for a report on some serious complaints I had made (over a year ago). This Manager had promised me 4months ago that things would be looked into but I had not heard back. In reply to my most recent query the Parliamentary Services Manager advised me that they would instead first like to meet me with the Labour Whips and then they would give a written reply. Don’t forget that Parliamentary Services is part of the triangular employment relationship, but Labour Whips aren’t. Hence my comments yesterday about seldom replying and often from behind the Whips’ table.
          ⁃To me this meeting on Thursday was another attempt to silence me, to bully me and to put me in my place. But unlike other times this time they had given me a slightly longer notice for the meeting. Having been in numerous meetings where I had no support person and was being talked at by 3-4 people often, I decided to take my lawyer Phil Mitchell with me to the meeting to support me. The meeting was called by the Labour Party Whips in their room with the presence of Parliamentary Services on the day of their choosing. They weren’t expecting me to bring a support person let alone a lawyer. Suddenly the conversation in the room was about moving forward. The staffing issues that PM and Whips office claim they had been working with me in good faith to resolve had been going on for 1.5 years but now somehow with the lawyer in the room and threat of a legal case hanging about their head, I was advised that all was forgotten! That I just had to move forward, drop my complaints about Parliamentary Service and significant issues of drunk staff, staff with serious complaints from constituents etc because they didn’t want to investigate these claims. I was told that I was relitigating old matters. At the Thursday meeting I continued to say that Kieran McAnulty is a bully and if they would investigate him. I was just given blank stares and told to move on. I was also told by Duncan Webb that making such claims against a sitting senior Labour MP can affect my career projection.
          ⁃But they agreed to resolve the staffing issues. Within 30mins of a meeting with my lawyer I had been emailed by two Managers at Parliamentary Services that everything would be resolved and we were moving forward. The ads and roles for staffing were sent to me and I was free to hire asap, something that couldn’t be done in 1.5 years was done in a short meeting with a lawyer.
          ⁃The reason the op-ed came out yesterday was because the meeting was called by the Labour Whips yesterday at a time and place of their choosing and in that meeting they continued to laugh on my face saying in front of my lawyer “how will you even sue us, you have no legal rights” while repeatedly refusing to investigate anything I have said or investigate me for any issue.
          ⁃In summary, I stand by my claims that I have been subjected to ongoing bullying by the Parliamentary Service and the Labour Whips and none of my concerns have been investigated. Neither has there been an investigation into any claims against me as per the last written contact from the Deputy CEO of Parliamentary Service. I didn’t just wake up on the wrong side of the bed one day and made these serious claims. For 1.5years I have been trying to seek independent investigation, justice and support from Parliamentary Service, Labour Whips and the PMO. I also want to clearly state that despite what Duncan Webb says it has always been my belief that the country should always come ahead of any party. If I ever have to choose between party and country my allegiance will always be with the country first.

        • Pinky, in the middle of reading now. Teehee this chap is bloody lucky ardern dosent have a cleanup crew like hillary clinton.

          Right here is why oia turn up jack shit and these cnuts have got away with murder… ” i went the only place I felt I could to seek help in December 2021. The
          Prime Ministers’ Office. The advice was always clear – do not give anything in writing and do not expect anything in writing. Everything can be OIA’ed”

          Its going to be hilarious when a few other low ranking labour mps start speaking out. If youre lead by right cunts and you know youre going to lose your job next election due to leadership fuckups and lack of accountability then take em down!

          • “ do not give anything in writing and do not expect anything in writing. Everything can be OIA’ed”

            That’s how the public service is really run. They are corrupt beyond your wildest dreams.

            The PSA worked with the Party to cover up the rapes and assaults at parliamentary services. Hung the members out to dry.

            • Jacinda Ardern disputes MP’s bullying claims, Labour says it ‘acted in good faith’ towards Dr Gaurav Sharma

              What does she say?

              “I dispute the premises of that suggestion”
              Fucking baggage.

              Ardern said there were no widespread issues of bullying within the Labour caucus.

          • We had a friend who was brought in to sort out a govt department. They had been set up years earlier but hadn’t set out their intended actions. She didn’t take any notes with her into meetings nor wrote anything down in case an OIA was made for information.

            From the article above. This is the arrogance of the Labour Pardy that doesn’t surprise me:

            “I was then told by Duncan Webb in clear terms that “the only way this country can succeed is if Labour is in government. Government means Labour. So the Party comes first and foremost before the country.”

  14. Another one heading to hell to burn with your friend Diana the whore of Windsor. Don’t worry, all their defenders will join them soon enough.

    This dick hating dyke was loaded on fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol. She did a hit and run before crashing into a house totally destroying everything the occupant had in the world.

  15. Looks like the Labour Party have a real problem (unlike the 20+ year old non issue National think they have).
    The Hamilton MP who wrote the Op ed in the NZH is sticking to his guns and has written a very detailed account on his FB page.

    https://thebfd.co.nz/2022/08/12/the-bfd-backchat30-8/

    NZH advert —wanted one extremely large carpet for the bullying issue to be swept under.

    Here’s a real challenge Luxon –show you know how to play the polical games.

      • No problem, the more that read that and weep the better. Labour are corrupt, unethical and dishonest. What he has said ( if true and I suspect it is) cannot be be compared to a hand grenade tossed ino their caucus, its a fucking Nuke….. I have seldom felt so uplifted as I do tonight….. The comments on Facebook that I read were mostly supportive. Dear Kind Fucking Bitch has a problem…..

        • I have not seen it but apparently Chris Trotter has written a very good piece on the situation as well. On his own blog I think —it was mentioned in a comment on BFD.

          They have real problem because they are not dealing some thick ex union goon, but an intelligent person with real world and life experience.

          Matt King should have a chat to him.

  16. The Polite Way to Pee 💦
    During one of her daily classes, a teacher trying to teach good manners, asked 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 said: ‘Just a minute I have to go pee.’ 😠
    The teacher responded by saying: ‘That would be rude and impolite’
    What about you Sherman, how would you say it?’
    Sherman 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, little Johnny, can you use your brain for once and show us your good manners? 😠
    Johnny 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, whom I hope to introduce to you after dinner.’ 😳😳
