Chivalry isn’t dead

Deb Fettig

Dear Editor,

In this day and age, it’s rare to find a good gentleman, and on Friday, Sept. 27, we found one.

Two friends and I were heading to Glenwood for dinner, dressed up, and got a flat tire at South Canyon. We were already late to meet the rest of the group, and considered calling for a ride. All of us knew how to change a tire, but didn’t want to get in the mud. Just then, a gentleman pulled over and got to work. With his jeans in the mud, he had it changed in five minutes. I couldn’t believe how nice he was. He could have driven by like several others have on previous flat tire episodes, but he didn’t.

We want to thank you for your help, Roosevelt Debose. Chivalry isn’t dead.
