    It does seem to be the case I think. I see more women mowing their lawns and on tractors these days than men. I also see men in cars on side of the road waiting for someone to change a tire because they don't know how. It maybe though that men have just gotten lazy.

    Rchance, I always wonder myself if these men have never had the benefit of a father figure to teach them how. So many women are single-parent families these days and many do not think of the things that a boy should be taught. Not trying to assign blame, as I *was* one of these households - it was just my Mother and I from the time I was five - so I feel I speak from experience. A neighbor was kind enough to act as my "surrogate father" and teach me all about how to be a man in today's world...if he wouldn't have, I might've been one of those men standing on the side of the road.

    One story that I felt really defined my manhood happened when I was barely 18. I was driving to a testing session for a job interview when I saw two women struggling on the side of the road with a flat tire. I was in a long-sleeve white dress shirt and slacks and no clothes to change into. I immediately stopped and helped and got them on their way (this was before cell phones) so they weren't stuck there. I arrived 10 minutes late to my interview in a dirty white shirt in a room with 20 other applicants and the interviewer asked, "Everyone else was here on time. Why should I let you apply?" I stared the interviewer straight in the eye and said, "I would never leave two women stranded by the side of the road. If that's a problem with this company, maybe I shouldn't work here." The interviewer stared at me hard and said, "Let me see your hands." I offered them up to which the interviewer got a widening smile and said,"Good answer. Sit down."

    I got the job.
