I was pissed off the other day when I saw this really small, very old woman going in and out of a gas station mini mart, obviously having a bit of trouble with the heavy door, and there were four large, young men standing around just watching her. One of them even had *her* hold the door for *him*. If I had been nearer and felt safe leaving my kids alone in the car, I’d have run over and been chivalrous myself. It kind of sucks that people are all me me me anymore.
It also bugs me when people driving through parking lots ignore pedestrians, especially if they’re driving directly in front of a shop’s / restaurant’s door where people, including small children, are constantly in and out.
Has society gotten rude?
Why are people becoming so self-centered?
Who is more chivalrous in general, men or women?
