Funny ones not from RD though

Chivalry is not dead yet. And I believe even the staunchest feminist enjoys, even if it is for a fraction of a second, when a Men open her door or lends a hand. But I believe, the act of chivalry that I just saw today was anything but chivalry.
This friend of mine, who is always opening doors for friends, holding the lift open button for others( if the others are predominantly female), was going for lunch with me to the canteen today. I told him that I need to pee so both of us went to the Loo. Like everywhere else, the door to the ladies Loo is exactly next to the door to the gents loo. As we were approahing the Loo, my chivalrious friend suddenly opens the ladies loo and was holding it. He apparently saw a lady comming, and was holding the door for her. he said," I forgot it was the Loo, I am used to holding doors for others". Too used to it I believe. I don't know what the lady must have felt, that such a charming prince with Turban no less was holding the door for her. BTW It was just a few minutes past 12 O' Clock. We were going for an early Lunch.

The other day I was Blog hopping and I saw this blog where some Bot have left a comment. You have wondefull Blog here. I enjoyed reading it. Please visit here for Viagra. In the Comment, the Blogger replied," Thanks for visiting my blog, i will definitely visit yours too".

Read about the Indra Nooyi story. Actually, she was not very far off the Point ;-)

The 12 o'clock coincidence never seems to fail. This reminds me of NIIT's Guwahati centre where a friend of mine used to teach. On the ladies loo it was inscribed 'GENTS not allowed' and the opposite for the one for the male of the species. You can easily comprehend the confusion there, with everyone (especially outsiders)perpetually missing the 'not allowed part'.

Thx Vis..
And yeah, i have noticed those creeps. i always pick A fight. one day, in the local, i stood up to let an old person and someone jsut swiftly rushed in, and he won't budge. I almost felt like bashing him up, but he eventually got up. Cheap bugger.
