Young Man's Side-Splitting Explanation For 'Ladies First'

Young Man's Side-Splitting Explanation For 'Ladies First'

A young man gave a side-splitting and absolutely hysterical explanation for why he abides by the “ladies first” rule.

Everyone would be much better off if we exhibited more kindness, care and respect for each other. Exhibiting a little common courtesy doesn’t require any extraordinary talent or skills. All that is needed is a slight concern for someone else's well-being and some extra time. 

One common way to display courtesy, kindness and respect is through chivalry. Of course, chivalry is how men are supposed to treat women – pulling out their chairs, holding doors and offering them their coats. When holding a door for a woman, a man will often say, “Ladies first,” as he exhibits a little common decency. 

Children are never too young to start learning how to treat one another. They are picking up things at a shockingly young age, so it is best to show them the right way, mainly how a boy is supposed to treat a young lady.

In a clip posted on Facebook, a little boy opened the door for a woman, and as he did, he said, “Ladies first.” But when asked why he held the door and said, “Ladies first,” the little guy gives a hilarious explanation for his actions.

Liam, the child in the video, says he heard that saying and got his explanation from someone named Hank.

“Hank says, “Ladies first,” because the ladies don’t have much patience,” Liam says. “The gentlemen do. The gentlemen have, have lots of patience.”

I’m not quite sure that is entirely true in all cases. Some people seem more patient than others, regardless of gender. But either way, it’s still adorable and funny. How could you watch that short 20-second clip and not burst out into laughter?

Liam is a little guy who is learning the right way to treat a young woman. 

Proverbs 22:6 “If a child is trained up in the right way, even when he is old he will not be turned away from it.”

Can’t say I’ve ever heard this explanation for “Ladies first” before.
