    I'll do everything you mentioned in your OP except the part about walking around to open the door for a woman to exit a vehicle. I don't see much of that anymore.

    I always stand (or half-stand) when a woman sits down or exits from a table and sometimes I get looks like I just walked off Jupiter. Some time-honored traditions are fading away.
    Be Not Afraid.

    That one really is. If I am the last to arrive at a table I usually make a point of telling the gentlemen not to stand on my account...it always generates nervous laughter...of course 1/2 of them are still digging into their salads during the convocation...that annoys me as well.

    Oh...and people that start eating their food even though everyone has not yet been served. I never do...and then when it is noticed and the person waiting for their dinner tells me to go ahead and eat I love the sudden contortions of logic the other zealous eaters give as to why it was okay for them to begin eating. I usually just smile and nod and tell them of course they are right (but why the zeal over the rubber chicken they're about to gnaw on anyway?)

    I think for the most part, chivalry is dead, and that is a sad thing. I think the newer generation wouldn't know that if it bit them in the ass. I may be referring to manners, as well, because in my experience most of them severely lack it. I can only assume--since I am obviously not a woman--that they will not behave very chivalrous as young adults. However, I believe that a lot of us older adults still try to uphold certain acts of chivalry.

    It is sad. Chivalry is a good thing. Last year a man offered me his seat on the parking lot shuttle in the airport...I was absolutely shocked and grateful (I thought it boded well for the fact that I might not actually miss my plane..but no such luck!)
