Is chivalry gone with the wind?!!! It seems like a lot of men have forgotten how to treat a lady. For example, while traveling in NYC my friends and I were banged on by a guy that cut us off as we were entering a restaurant. I opened the door to enter as he was walking toward the exit. As a result he grabbed the door and allowed the people following to proceed in. Next thing I know dude is going off, "Damn you can't say thank you?!!"
I thought to myself, "fool, I opened the door for myself." Another guy was getting really aggressive with my friend. I guess he was feeling her swag, however there are better ways to show that you are attracted/interested in a person rather than grabbing and pulling at them. I couldn't believe the type of treatment we were receiving. And East Coast Men are supposed to be more refined, as if!
Ladies don't get down on yourself, there are still some good men out there. The other day I struggled with two hands full of grocery trying to make it to my apartment without making a second trip to the car. All the while I was praying that nothing dropped or spilled out of my hand when one of the maintenance workers in my apartment offered a helping hand. the maintenance guys are very nice and typically offer assistance whenever they see me carrying anything. Normally I decline, but this time I had to take them up on the offer and it brought a smile to my face to know that men still know a woman's worth.
