A single woman is having a difficult time fitting a big boxed TV Set into the back of her Sport Utility Vehicle which is parked in the parking lot of a large electronics store.
Several men walk by and offer to help her.
She turns them all down.
Finally, the boxed TV Set falls right on top of her.
Only her hands and feet are visible from beneath the large box.
When the same men come out of the store on the way to their cars, they notice the woman.
They gather around.
One asks, “Do you think we should lift the box off her?”
They all look at each other.
After 20 minutes of back and forth tedious deliberation, the men decide against it and leave.
It’s been 10 hours and the manager is locking the store up for the night.
On his way to his car, he comes across the woman still struggling beneath the box.
Quickly, he lifts the box off her. “Ma’am, are you alright?”
Crying, the woman says, “This is why I keep telling my girlfriends that chivalry is dead.”
