Yes...I saw someone elderly hurry to catch a door...but the person ahead just stomped past...like he was the only one on the planet.

When I'm in the city...everyone seems to automatically hold the door open...so not many thanks are required...but when you are on crutches and some makes a point of standing there and holding the door open...who can but feel grateful and an inkling of love for humanity?

I find being in Toronto...everyone helps each other...we enjoy it...but in Hamilton...people are too close minded or involved in mentally solving some algorithm or something.

Not at all. I do it and see it done, quite often.

I hope not. I always hold the door for the person behind me.

No way! I do it still, then I slam it on them before they're completely through. It's like a booby trapped door.
