you are WRONG Today show!

they said chivalry was dead. they had a full report about it.
and yes, in some places it is
but not totally
(ps, when i google image searched "chivalry", this is one of the pictures to pop up. and i am ok with that. because Charade is one of the best movies ever made. and cary grant is ALWAYS the correct answer:
who is the most charming man to ever walk the earth? should a guy wear a suit to a daytime wedding? how about to a nice dinner? are cleft chins attractive? would you like some cheese on your pasta miss? )

i think as a sgm girl, i am spoiled rotten. i don't think i have opened a door in one of our boys company in about 5 years. they always offer to drive (YES!) and walk us to our cars. i came to expect that the rest of the world was not so thoughtful...
but since then, i have gotten to know some of my male co-workers. we walked through the studio (where there is a door every 10 feet) and i didn't open A SINGLE ONE. NOT ONE.
Today at Auto Zone i bought some oil treatment that i just pour into the oil reservoir. In the 3 minutes it took for me to pour, 5 men asked if i needed help. i smiled sweetly and thanked them, but let them know i was fine. (the hood of my car was protecting me from the arctic wind, so i was actually better off...)
that is one of the perks of living in the south... gentlemen are everywhere

Chivalry is the best ever...

especially when it looks like Cary Grant or Mike Pasalich...

Everyone knows northerners are jaded and bitter. They need to move to the south. Country men still open doors for women.
