I do it all the time.
Occasionally people will walk through and not say a word.. like it's my job to hold the door. That irks my rod, but most people acknowledge the gesture.
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.
So that's where that has come from because they pay People to greet People at our Supermarkets now. they never used to.
that's because you're a Gentleman
ditto I'm a Lonely Tazzy and I miss my Cheeky Brit , where are ya babe ?
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.
Using my manners takes seconds , why would I ever stop using them
It's not about the person behind me that I open the door for that I may never see again in my whole Life , it's about me and who I am.
