Chivalry Is Not Dead


Loretta, in a fit of resigned self-pity, complains to her apathetic acquaintance that Leroy is not quite so gallant as he used to be. What he may lack in valor he more than makes up for in sheer magnificence, as his exaggerated chivalrous pose when he holds open the electric door with his toe suggests. His apparent happiness could be from imagining that he's helping her into an electric chair.

Maybe he is trying to butter her up, hoping for a semi-decent Christmas gift.

But I don't think that woman is an acquaintance at all. She is merely a stranger who wishes to enter the store, but now she has to play audience to "The Lockhorns".

She will forever on do her shopping online.

Wings: Could be. Maybe they just know every single Long Island resident.
