Is Chivalry Dead?

I've had a slow leak in one of my tires for a week or so.
Yesterday I drove to my neighborhood service station to fill it up with air. I pulled up to the air pump, hopped out of the car and got busy taking off the cap and checking the tire's pressure.
That's when I noticed the station's three technicians standing there.
Watching me.
Not one of them offered to help.
They're automobile technicians!
I go to that gas station all of the time!

Sure, I can fill a tire myself, but they work there! I expected one of them, just one, to offer to help.
It surprised me.
It made me sad to think chivalry is dead.
It made me go home and have a conversation with my two sons.
Another life lesson to teach. Another opportunity to teach my boys what would have been the kind, helpful thing to do for a woman.
The chivalrous thing to do.
I hope they listened to me.
Time will tell.

Chivalry won't die as long as we teach our boys how to be a man. And we teach our girls how to be a lady.
