Is Chivalry Dead?

This morning I parked in the garage that I park in every morning, sat in my car for a little bit to listen to the rest of a segment on the radio that had me cracking up- I mean what’s better than starting your day off with a good laugh right? Well those couple of minutes caused a butterfly effect that got me into the following situation… As I’m walking to the elevator I hear someone behind me- he’s talking on his phone arguing with someone “I’m already late, I don’t have time to talk this bu**sh** with you right now. Stop f**king calling me!” I thought to myself ‘Oh great! I’m gonna have to get in the elevator with this guy’ No biggie, we were only on the 3rd floor. So I push the button and wait for the elevator. The light on the button is lit meaning it’s been pushed- I say this because I thought everyone knew that when the light is on ITS BEEN PUSHED, but apparently not everyone understands that because Sir Grump-A-Lot decides to step in front of me and push it again. Rolling my eyes, I step back and let him perform his magic trick. The elevator doors finally open and he steps in first… dickhead move right there being that I was there first, but whatever, he’s clearly having a bad morning so I let him be the lady at that moment. He pushes the button to go down to the 1st floor, and keeps pushing it because the doors are taking too long to close and when they do close, he still continues pushing it but now its with the side of his hand and he’s now making “grrr” noises. Holy sh*tballs, what’s this guy on? Hey idiot if you continue to hit that button do you really think it will go into hurry mode – really… To make things worse the elevator stops on the second floor. Another lady walks in (to my relief) and this a**hole says “You gotta be fu**en kidding me” And returns to assaulting the button. So two ladies and a psycho in the elevator, we finally hit the first floor, who gets out first? Yup the psycho- but only after practically running over the lady standing in front of the doors. This jerk took a great morning and had me gritting my teeth in a matter of minutes. It’s so sad that this isn’t the first time I’ve come across men who have no manners around a woman. I hope to god that my sons never act this way in front of women. I will teach them how to always be respectful in the presence of a lady! Please let chivalry not be completely dead!
