The bartender, IMO, was demonstrating manners that was sorely lacking in the two men who obviously belong to the “Entitlement” class.

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt on what your definition of "entitlement class" is in this situation.

I wouldn't have given up my seat either. My money is as good as that of those women.

In this case, I don’t think they should have been “asked” to give up their seat.

If it isn’t free will, then it really isn’t gentlemanly manners. And that says more than anything about someone, though I understand completely not giving up your seat to the likes of many young women. They would excoriate you on one hand as being sexist, and on the other hand would give you a fake, sweet smile and take your seat while expressing to their friend out of earshot “What a putz. Gave up his seat. Glad I got it.”

Not all but there are some.

Elderly, or pregnant and you turn your back and fail to offer, you are a self-centered heel. No questions asked there.

I was raised differently, apparently. I would have given up my seat to the women. I certainly would not have acted as brutish and uncivil as these two gents (term used extremely loosely).
