Oh do forgive me... I'm so so sorry

Is there such a thing as being TOO polite?

Clayton and I went to Calgary on the weekend to Stage West. It was a company event so we were there with a bunch of Clayton's co-workers. After a bathroom trip by one of his female co-workers, she returned with a very amused look on her face.
She could barely contain the laughter as she shared with us what had went down in the biffy...

So I had just finished my business and was following up with the customary hand wash when I noticed the lady beside me having trouble with the paper towel dispenser. "I think you just need to wave your hand in front of it," I offered.
She tried that but still nothing happened. "Maybe it's out of paper," she suggested. Then she turned and smacked right into the full length mirror to her left. Now wait for it... wait for...
She proceeded to apologize, "Oh my goodness, I am so sorry, I..." And then she stopped abruptly... when she realized she was apologizing to her reflection... and herself and her reflection both turned bright red. "Oh... um... now that's embarrassing," she mumbled as she quickly ducked out of the bathroom, hands still dripping wet.

What? Didn't your Mother teach you proper manners?!
