Atlanta named most chivalrous city?

Good news everyone! The great folks at Dockers® sent me the following news release about our great city. Check it out!

Last week, in a light-hearted chivalry smack-down between five major cities– Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco – a young woman or mature gentleman was staged in a high traffic pedestrian area in a state of distress, where they clearly struggled with heavy and toppling file boxes. Did anyone stop to help?

Indeed they did…and no one fared better than in Atlanta.

The results:

1) Atlanta proved to be the most chivalrous, with only up to 8 people passing our man or woman in distress before someone stopped.

2) Coming in second was Dockers’ hometown of San Francisco, with up to 17 people passing by before a chivalrous individual stopped to help

3) The third most chivalrous city was Chicago, with 20 passersby before help was offered

4) Fourth most chivalrous was Los Angeles, with 35 passersbys before someone took a moment to help

5) And in 5th place was New York (Manhattan), with up to 40 people passing by our man or woman before someone stopped to lend a hand

So what do you think? Pretty awesome to know that our city ranks so high compared to other cities?

I wonder if singles in each of these cities would agree with the chivalry quotients of their city?

In our city of transplants and natives, would you say that you meet chivalrous people often on the dating scene?

Clearly we have the south advantage. Do you believe that where we grew up and the way we were raised makes a difference?

random: is it bad when the Tarot Card/Palm Reading lady seems unnerved by your reading, wont tell you what she “saw”, and gives you your money back?

Blue, just try a few other tarot spots, if they all give you the same readings…start learning voodoo to help ward off evil blog people

Hello Everybody:

I am southerner born raised right here in the A, I have lived in the NYC (Bronx) and southern Cal (San Diego) Yisidro area. People I know in the north will tell you heartlessly I don’t give a F. No chilvary there ever. While my experienced out west where they were more laid back business men wearing shorts to work with sport blazers was cool as hell. In Vegas they will damn near give you keys to the city. It all comes back full circle to the south.

‘threw out half my stash thinking it had gone bad!’

Fion – You been on that Salvia huh? If yall wanna witness some COMEDY, you ought to pull up folks who have recorded their experience smoking that stuff. HILARIOUS It lasts only a few minutes, folks freak out but don’t remember what happened when it wears off.

‘If you’re gonna go the Tiy-E route, we’ll need to put a landing strip down your scalp.’

Ared – OMG!!!!!!!!! I’m cracking up over here because I couldn’t, for the life of me, figure out why he just didn’t get his hair cut low until the landing strip grew out. I think I just laughed water outta my nose. You’re wrong for that one! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Does Tiy-E have a scalp disease?? When I started to go bald ( at the ripe ole age of 23, JUST DAMN!!!) it began at the front and moved rapidly toward the back. Thanks M Jordan for the bald look :-)

Ared – Yeah I couldn’t figure out why he didn’t just go bald. Now who would work so hard for their degree to fold it into a square and stuff it in your back pocket. That was nothing but an oil change receipt he had in his hand. You see he didn’t even open it up all the way. What would he have done if Sheree had proven she was a woman by pulling her va jay jay out…BLUFFER.

cba/Ared – I figured the landing skrip was from the weight of his locks all those years. Eventually, it would create tension on the scalp causing a permanent part or area of hair loss.
