Is Chivalry Dead?

Eric and I had a weird experience yesterday when we were shopping in the mall. We were in line waiting for our turn with the cashier. The woman before us was paying for her stuff and accidentally dropped some of her money. Eric being the nice guy that he was bent down to pick it up for her. He kindly said, "Here you go ma'am," before setting it on the counter next to her. At this she fiercely whacked the money off of the counter and said in a snotty tone, "My husband doesn't like me touching money that someone else has touched." Ummm, excuse me but do you know how many people have touched that money before my husband did? It was such a weird response and I have to mention that she had to touch the money to whack it off the counter. Eric said next time he won't offer to help. Sheesh, you can't even be nice to people these days...

WHAT?!!!!!!! I hope he said something really smart right back!! Did the money just stay where where she whacked it? I would have said "Oh okay!" and picked it up and put it in my pocket!!! Sheesh! What a witch!!!
