Chivalry is NOT Dead

Praise Jesus. Just yesterday one of my classmates and I were talking about the ridiculously rude people on campus.

Then low and behold, without hearing our conversation, another helped me carry my equipment. Most of them hold the door for me and the other 2 women in the program. Then this morning on the bus one guy got up to let a girl have his seat since it was becoming standing room only [which is beginning to wreak its own special havoc on my arms when I have to stand and hold myself on one of those vertical bars (obviously at 5'2 the horizontal above me bars are too tall) while the bus takes corners and all other sorts of odd things.]. Then another guy got up, then another and another until the bus was filled with only men standing and ladies seated. It was a miraculous day!!!




Okay so maybe it wasn't quite like that but the 2 guys who did stand for the ladies made my day!

Oh yeah and my classmates now know of my deep love for all things Rachael Ray so yesterday after we came back from mock interviews to test all of the audio equipment one group said, "We interviewed Rachael Ray." When I tell you I almost lost it! It was hilarious. But now for 2 consecutive days I've been able to tell people why she's so awesome! Yay! Lol.

I blame the parents. Every time I see a woman in distress, I feel my mother's breath on the back of my neck. I'm automatically charged to respond/help/be concerned.

ooh!! I'm delighted that people are caring for the lovely Jameil! :) Of course, I'm dying to know why Rachel Ray is fabulous. She has a great smile and a cute husband - that's all I know!

it is the most charming thing to see a guy get up for a woman. I love it. holding doors, notsomuch cause women do it too. standing for a woman? good home training

I have an aunt who really disliked Rache for a while. But she never had a valid reason. I was so upset with her. She has never explained herself.

Yaaaay manners!!! Do you remember the 60 minutes ( or something) special about stopping to help a stranger? The only two people who reacted were two black guys. I cheered!!
