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?

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.

Si Senorita SlimNumeroUno. The smaller they are the better, for that very reason. As they grow the get heavier.

Melo – naw, it’s not a jealousy thing. But I work hard on these witty posts of mine and I want them to make it through unscathed. You won’t catch me printing them out, folding them up and stuffing them in my back pocket tombout Prove to me You’re a Certified Blog Monster & shiznit!! :lol:

Ared/Slim: Back in the 70’s, I kept my hair braided all the time. So when people asked, why I balded so early I would say the braids. To be honest, I think those damn genes did me in….. dad, granddad, older brother, uncles, etc

Ared – I love Stevie but i’m thinking dayum dawg, when you gonna let it go. Pretty soon he’ll just have one row of braids in the very back of his head. Would that be considered a bald-headed mullet or just a tail?

It ain’t like, I ain’t tell you from day one, I ain’t s.hit
When it comes to relationships, I don’t have the patience
Now it’s too late, we got a little life together
and in my mind I really want you to be my wife forever
But in the physical it’s like I’ma be trife forever
A different girl every night forever; told you to leave
but you’re stubborn and you love him and,
no matter what despite all the fu.c in and the cheatin,
you still won’t leave him, now you’re grievin
And I feel bad, believe me
But I’m young and I ain’t ready, and this ain’t easy
Wasn’t fair to tell you to wait, so I told you to skate
You chose not to, now look at the s. hit we gotta go through
Don’t wanna fight, don’t wanna fuss, you the mother of my baby
I don’t want you to hate me, this is about us
Rather me; I ain’t ready to be what you want me to be
Because I love you, I want you to leave, please
