    Must be the 50s. Looks like she is wearing a “sack” dress and a “pillbox” hat. Also, of course, using her feminine wiles to grab a seat on a crowded subway car!

    Yep. That sure as he-l wouldn’t happen these days. They just sit and stare at you. At least that’s how 98 persent act.

    That ploy wouldn’t work today, because it’s every man or woman for himself (or herself); but when the strip was published, it would rarely have been necessary. It was common and expected in those fdays for a gentleman offer his seat to a lady. Jeff was just being rude, or he would have stood up, tipped his hat and allowed the lady to sit down without her having to resort to such obvious subterfuge.

    Well I still give up a seat for a lady or hold a door open and I always will. Most ladies say thanks, a few throw it back in your face but mostly I just get trampled in the stampede through the door.

    It’s possible that she didn’t notice her hankie falling and thought Jeff was offering her his seat! Our etiquette teacher taught us never to pick up a lady’s handkerchief but to point it out to her on the ground; ladies wouldn’t like you touching such personal objects but, of course, Jeff is wearing gloves…

    That ploy wouldn’t work today. Chivalry is dead.

    Good work Jeff. A long time ago I gave up my seat to a lady on the bus I was riding.

    Jeff is a gentleman, but she sure ain’t no lady.

    I just LOVE Jeff’s confused expression in the last panel.

    I guess you’re right – my knight errant tendencies blasted to hell!

    Many men have tried to keep manners in vogue for as long as possible, but many women no longer deserve them, because they no longer reciprocate. Many modern women even reject manners as being patronizing and sexist.
