    Embarassing experience

    So yesterday, I go to the LDS to return our rental tanks (AL 80 and 100). I had to return both mine and my husbands as he had a course at the university. The shop was closed but the owner was there because he has dive club meetings every Wednesday. On to my story

    So, in I walk struggling to carry both tanks and hold the door open so I can get the tanks (and myself) through the door. As I'm struggling to get in, the men in the dive club are just staring at me- none of them even offered to hold the door!

    Now, I don't mind that they didn't offer to carry my tanks or anything but damn they could have at least had the decency to not stare at me as I'm struggling with them. It was kind of embarrassing to be trying to carry the tanks back to where they go and have like 20 people watching you.

    Evidently, there were no Southern gentlemen in the group...that would have constituted a group flogging in my neck of the woods.

    Why was it embarrassing for you? It is they who should feel the shame.

    Because nobody wants to be watched when you are struggling with something. Common courtesy would be to at least look away.

    No gentlemen at all, southern, northern or western.

    YOU shouldn't be embarassed. Their mothers should be embarassed. Their fathers, too.

    My wife would have simply set the tanks down and said "you guys are so kind to offer to carry these for me."

    NM, you are truly blessed with a silver tongue, and rednose, were I come from, your embarassment would have been from all the help offered.

    This, my friends, is a true southern gentleman.

    I also have trouble getting through the LDS door with 2 tanks. I carry 2 to the door, set them down to open the door, and move them inside one at a time. I have to do this quickly so one of the ladies working in the shop does not have to come and help.
