Some men apparently take pride in being complete and utter assholes. Not every man but a lot. They sort of wear it like a Girl Scout badge and that cheeky pride does not look as cute when it’s a late 20-something man-boy. I really don’t know where they learn it. Did they think the film, American Psycho, was a training video?? Who knows, but in the past two days I’ve seen glimpses of a silver lining that has me looking for the knight that is showing them these tricks! I want to find that knight and give him a big smooch on the cheek.
Apparently one of my good friends is getting engaged soon...I know that because her boyfriend actually asked her mother for permission to ask for her hand in marriage. Okay let's hear it..."Awwwww". This morning when CJ left my condo for his work day he gave me an extra kiss on the cheek before he left that made me blush. My friend and I are lucky to have men who still hold open doors for us too. I am a very independent woman, but I still like it.
This tho caught me by suprise. This morning I was walking towards my office building when I noticed a man going into the elevator. I hit the building entrance door when he was hitting the floor buttons. As I was stepping into the building the man looked up put his hand to stop the elevator and shouted, "Going up Miss?" Now I was a good 60 feet from the elevator, but he still took the minute to ask. I shouted, "Nah I'm taking the stairs, but thank you!". He nodded and the elevator door closed. At the Yankee Game the man in front of me in the concession line heard me say I was getting a pretzel but there was only one left. He turned to me and asked if I wanted it. I said yeah but then I said, if he wanted it I would go to another line. He went, "Oh no need lil lady. It's all yours. I don't need the salt anyway." He let me cut him in line to make sure I got it too. Wow! Complete strangers showing chivalry now?? I'm shocked and delighted all the same...
Do you think Chivalry is dead? When was the last you witnessed it?
