This is an interesting thread and has been well covered. Being from the south I tend to expect some things to still occur as they should, i.e., holding doors and such. In the same token, it is ladylike to appreciate and acknowledge the gentleman who is being so gracious and kind. I think if we go back to common decencies and again, RELEARN simply mannerism that our society would not be as taunting as it appears. Gentlemen, I thank you... Ladies, I thank you, too. Yes, we coming of age aren't we?
