I miss the days when educating a child was more important than maintaining his self esteem.

Default I miss....

A truly well educated individual will have self-esteem....
But... back to the subject at hand. I miss the days of respect and manners toward women. Say what you will... a gentleman never goes out of style.

I agree with you. What I was referring to is the tendency these days to dumb down the curriculum so everyone thinks they are well educated. It's the no child left behind syndrome. Everyone passes, and if they still believe 2+2=5, we'll just change the value of 2. Heaven forbid Little Junior is a disruptive student. If he is, we call it a sickness and medicate that behavior right out of him. We would never consider the fact that he might just be an undisciplined little ####.

I miss the days when a woman would act like a lady and thank the gentleman for his kindness.

Chivalry did not die a natural death. Women's libbers murdered it. I have literally been cussed at, glared at, and even spit at for the simple act of holding a door for a woman. In spite of that, I still do it. Thankfully the fight for equal rights has become less combative over the years.

If a woman can act like a man, by SPITTING at you, then treat her like a man and trip that biotch.

That said, I think a man is doing it right when his kid asks his girlfriend, "do you even know how to open your own door?"

I feel like a million bucks when a man treats me with such respect. And I thank all you men who hold a door open for a lady. And I never forget to say thank you.

You may be female by gender, but you are a lady by choice. Thank you. I know there are many of you still out there, and it always brightens my day to meet one.

I wouldn't do that, but she did learn a lesson that day. Make sure you are through the doorway before spitting. She dropped her package trying to catch the door I let go of. From what I heard I think there was glass in her bag.

I open doors, including car door for my wife. If its my truck were riding in I pick her up and put her in, so she doesn't have to crawl up or give anyone a show.
