Chivalry is NOT dead

A little boy in class has single-handedly revived my faith in the next generation.  At the bathroom today I overheard him while he was pumping out hand sanitizer (they can't reach the soap and water faucets well) to classmates.  Here is the scene.  Redeeming little boy (RLB) was standing against the wall with 3 boys in front of him with their hands out waiting for a squirt to get back in line.  A little girl in class walked up and made child number 4.

Other little boy: My turn.
RLB: No, no.
Other boy: What?
RLB: Duh, ladies first.

He then proceeded to go around the 3 boys in front of him to give the one girl hand sanitizer.  He then nodded (to affirm himself) and said, "Good manners are important, now it's your turn."

Yup, that's all I got for today.  He made me laugh and smile, I hope you enjoy too!

Aw, hopefully he won't grow out of it as most men seem to do!

The feminist in me wishes the little girl had politely refused the offer while pointing out that there were others who were waiting longer than she.
