Well, I want to know why you didn't slam the door in her rude and ungrateful little face. You wuss. Dodgy

I thought about it, but then I remembered "Oh...Chas might find that in poor taste. Manners matter, after all."

Aaaaaaaaaand checkmate. Drinking Beverage


They do. I was suggesting that yours match hers.


Of course, the better path would have been to walk through as soon as she said to.

RE: Turning In My Man-Card
It's interesting you mentioned the opening door thing.

I recently heard a woman complaining about men holding doors open as sexist and how she hated it.

I must not make much of a feminist because I still enjoy these acts of chivalry, and I complain that it never happens anymore.


Point of the story. Women are weird.

I don't know about those choices, though. Girly gets his testosterone from pills; Chas is old; Muffs is a fruit and Vera's a chick. None seem especially qualified.


Old, huh? Consider

A little girl?! Oh Chas...How disappointing.

It's true. Once when the boys were small, I was struggling with a stroller, bags and a very terse 5 year old and trying to get inside the mall. A man in his 50s (probably Chas) just walked right around (seriously he had to move around us) just as I was nearing the door.

He walked through and let the door close behind him.

I felt at that moment like running after him and asking him if he MOTHER ever taught him MANNERS.

As I looked at my little one with the noodly arms struggling to open the door (sigh).

I certainly would have appreciated an act of chivalry at that moment! And many moments since then. There's nothing more rude...and I'm sorry it's not about sex...it's about a human kindness. I've held a door open for men when I see their struggling to carry that big TV out of Sears. (I usually park by Sears because the side of mall the there's always parking available.

You forgot, they have belch loudly and fart...then openly sniff the air as they scratch their over-heated nuts from the blast of warm butt air.

If I had seen that man do that to you I would have probably chased him down FOR you (After I helped you and your little ones with the door) Some people....honestly.


I have held the door open for many people. I usually do If I see people coming up behind me as I reach a door. It just seems like what you -should- do.

Chivalry (and manners in general) appear to be dead Sad

RE: Turning In My Man-Card
I tore up my man card a while ago. Fuck it. I'll do as a please, whether or not it makes me more or less masculine in the eyes of others.

Besides, you don't mess with little girls- it's good that you backed down when you did, before things really got ugly. You're luck to be alive, you should send her a letter thanking her for her mercy.

That's not chivalry, that is courtesy. Holding the door open for another person has nothing to do with being a man and everything to do with being polite.
