I’m old school. My parents taught my sister and me to respect others and always be helpful too just like the image suggests. America seriously needs to return to this way of thinking and conducting ourselves when in public. I always enjoy helping people, do you?
Yesterday when walking out of the bank, I passed a car in the handicap spot that was obviously leaking air quickly from its left rear tire. I went to the driver’s door and got the elderly woman’s attention. I explained why I was bothering her, she hopped out of the car and clearly heard the tire hissing.
I suggested that she head for a tire store or garage that can help her. She headed out very quickly for a repair garage. She was very grateful for my letting her know and left quickly. That’s one way you can be helpful and nice to others. America is still full of good people (not patting me on the back here).
You sometimes have to look a little deeper to see or find them. Now, go do something nice for others today!

We do need to go back to all being like this. That was very kind of you!
Despite all the craziness in the world, it’s good to know that there are still amazing people out there who are willing to help a total stranger. I’m a firm believer in paying it forward 🙂
I completely agree with this John.
I’m glad that we think alike, Sylvia. America needs to return to the past in some ways.
I am Old School too, when it comes to Manners and Respect.
Good! I think that we are roughly the same age but I never ask a woman her age, baaad idea!
Actually, we have covered this before. I am 57 and have no qualms sharing that!
Upon my very first visit to the UK, I boarded a train in London, and was met by a sea of poker faces. At the next tube station, and elderly lady entered and a gent got up, to offer her the very seat he had just sat down on. I commended his British gallantry, to which he responded with a familiar accent. “Oh, it’s because I’m from South Carolina,” he said, smilingly.
Oh, that’s interesting and God bless this man! Chivalry is not dead just yet. 👍🏻 I see that Snoopy has a low battery…
I’m old school too, nothing wrong with helping people out! And some days we may need help ourselves.
That’s great, and we all will need some help along the journey.
I try to step up and help people when I can and I taught my kids to do likewise. I know they still do and my grandkids are particularly charming in that regard. But man, there are SO many people in this province who seem to be totally clueless in this regard. The free world is stepping up to support Ukraine in their struggle with Russia and here…. We are having another convoy of idiots today to protest the high cost of gasoline (due to shortages and government sanctions of Russian oil/gas). Nothing like wasting gas in stupid convoys to protest the shortage of gas. OMG!
Wow, that is pretty darn dumb to drive around protesting fuel prices, and they will probably achieve nothing. Your children sound like good people, way to go AnneMarie! Gladly, I am mostly a homebody and use very little fuel in my 2015 pickup truck with it’s 4.3 litre V6 engine. It’s not so good on gas milage!
You have your bike so it’s good you can get out and about that way. My children are for the most part good, responsible people. 😉
Amen to that! Well done, momma! 😂
Funnily enough, my grandfather always told me that, when walking along the pavement (sidewalk) with a woman, the man should always be on the outside (nearest the road). This because, in the old days, if a horse drawn carriage went by, then woman would not get splashed if there was a puddle close to the pavement (sidewalk). I have been afflicted by this rule for all my life. And, even in these days of equality, I would always hold a door open for a woman. I guess I must be old school.
That’s so nice that you keep yourself between the road and your lady, I did too when I had one. I always hold the door for any woman, Chivalry isn’t dead!!
As my grandmother used to say: ‘good manners are free.’
Your grammy is wise!
