Just a very quick post as I have woken up at some ridiculous time!!
Where have all the gentlemen gone?
Well I think they are in London!
On my travels last week, I was struggling during the rush hour with a huge, cumbersome suitcase and on approaching some of the steep staircases on the underground, twice I was offered help. A voice in the crowd said “Can I give you a hand with that?”
Now what is surprising is that the men in question were young ie; late 20’s early 30’s. They were dressed in suits and quite obviously going to work. Yet in the crushing and pushing they took my heavy bag and lugged it up the stairs for me. I was incredibly grateful, they carried the bag and left it at the top of the stairs, I thanked them and they disappeared into the masses and went on their way.
I will never see these men again but I cannot explain how their kindness was appreciated and they will never know how thankful I was.
It’s lovely to know that this kind of chivalry still exists. It certainly took me by surprise and made my day!
So I raise my glass (well my coffee cup) to the gentlemen of London!!
