It's an Amerikan abomination of the use of the English language 
and should not be encouraged by Australians.

I nearly went blue in the face the other day when a girl asked me 
where the "bathroom" was.    I said "do you need to have a shower or 
a bath?" and she looked at me like I had two heads and said "of course 
not - I need to go to the toilet!", so I said, "Why didn't you say so?
It's this way....".....

Stupid useless cultural sneakiness........
