Chivalry isn't dead at the supermarket
I was waiting in line at the supermarket this morning when the gentleman in front of me (who was carrying just one item) suggested I move in front of him (I had six items).
I said "no, that's ok, you have only one item".
He replied "no, you go first, I want to set a good example to my sons".
I thanked him and moved in front.
He said that it was important to demonstrate to his son (who were toddlers) how to treat people and that chivalry wasn't dead.
It was a lovely few moments because rarely does a parent say that sort of thing public and it isn't often that one sees acts of kindness and manners in public any more.
I found the supermarket much busier (and noisier) today as people commence their Christmas purchases. Its this time of the year that you often see the best or the worse in people. Its also the time when people go a little crazy in their attempt to get everything done before the 25th. Sadly I think you see the worse in people far more than the very best.
Making it even more unpleasant - the supermarket gets very "crowded" as more and more products are filling up the aisles making it more difficult to get around!! How are you finding the supermarket at the moment.
I just love these 1950 grocery shopping shots and particularly want to draw your attention to the one below!! What will you wear on your next trip to the supermarket? None of these people look frazzled!!
Happy shopping ladies!
