(When I say teen, I don't mean 18 or 19, more like 14 or 15) He approached me directly, with good eye contact, a firm handshake, genuine remorse, and spoke to me in a clear, steady and manlike voice. What a great kid!! Humanity is alive and well and there is hope for the up and coming generation! I was impressed! ... Oh and by the way, what he handed me was not a run of the mill cheque, but a bank draft in my name, printed at the local branch.
Thanks to this teenager, I have more faith in humanity than I did at this time yesterday.

I used to do it all the time when I was riding a bus - and the 'ladies' used to shoot me dirty looks everytime I did it.
There's a reason why lots of men don't do it anymore- they are tired of getting hollered at.

I thanked them all with a cheerful smile and rejoiced in the return of the Gentleman. I would like to note that none of these Gentlemen were under 40, and that the two who remained seated, hunched over the two inch screen displaying Action Moviesw, were teenagers. I find this pattern consistent -- and am happy to report that the rise of gentlemen 40+ seems to be a trend. I have also noted that the women who rise to offer me a seat range from approximately 15 to 50.
