Chivalry Still Exists

Posted By on Thu, Feb 12, 2009 at 4:00 AM

On February 12 there were very icy road conditions, so I did not take my car---because I dress for vanity and not weather conditions. It was a very dicey walk to the bus stop, when I got there and climbed the mountain of ice to get in to the bus shelter (thanks HRM snow removal), there was a young guy there, plugged into his ipod and basically just being a kid. Anyway the bus showed up, the young kid got on the bus and as I went to climb the mountain to get on the bus, the kid who I now will refer to as a young gentleman, turned and offered his hand to help me on the bus. I was touched beyond words, to say the least! Thank you kind stranger...
