A response to “Chivarly”
I’m sure that Labyrinthx’s post about “Chivarly” was based off my “twitter rant” about chivarly and the lack of it. If you remember, twitter only lets you have 140 characters, so it’s hard to tell a “story” per se.
You see, I was in a small area. A small, mechanic smelling area where there were only 2 seats available to sit in. So there is one woman sitting in the other. Do you, as a man who does not know the other woman that is there 1. sit down or 2. offer the seat to the woman stranger?
That is also part of chivarly. It’s not expected but at the same time, when it’s not given, it’s almost kind of rude.
And I don’t look at it as it’s because I am a woman. It’s because I have bad knees. But also, as I know how I am, I am not going to ask for the seat, because that would just seem rude of me. So I stand for 20-30 before I leave because there was no way I was waiting more than that for the guy to show up to have to wait for him to finish with the two people before me.
