I'm not sure if I fully agree with the statement, "Chivalry is dead". But I sure do witness it a lot less often than I'd like. However - the exception to this phrase that I've come to realize in the last couple of months while working on the 12th floor: elevator chivalry.

I take an elevator everyday - usually 2 to 4 times per day - which is something I'm not used to doing. And no matter what the ages of the men and women in the elevator, when we reach the lobby ALL the men ALWAYS stand there & wait for the women to exit first. A small gesture. And a nice one.

Turns out chivalry is not dead. At least inside the elevator.
