The Death of Chivalry

Moments ago an older women with a slight limp walked into the train. Dressed in scrubs it was obvious that she works in the hospital. Seated next to me was a young kid doing his homework, sprawled out over two seats. She kindly asked him to move but he ignored her. Seeing this I gave her my seat. 

Normally I would fume fit some time over the meanness and lack of courtesy but today I’m fortunate enough to see it differently. Today I wish that he sees the error of his ways and tries something different next time. For his own good and for the rest of us too.
