Been A Doorman Lately?

I held doors open for women on two separate occasions today and in both instances the women sauntered past and completely ignored me as if I were the doorman.

Girls, if a guy holds a door for you, he isn’t doing it because it is a hobby of his or for his health. He is being courteous and is doing you a favor. Acknowledge this. Is a polite “thank you” or even just a smile and a nod too much to ask?

I have discovered that a firm “you’re welcome” does a respectable job of getting my point across, but I really shouldn’t have to do that as frequently as I do…

Look, Katie even holds doors for Tom:

It’s not exactly related to the topic at hand, but it is kind of funny how much taller she is than him, isn’t it?

  1. Exactly! It makes ladies (woman not girls) look bad. It makes it that much harder for a good woman to be seen as a a lady, who follows the rules of todays ettiquette. It is not seen as woman being less capable. It is a courtesy and way of being polite, acknowledging you as a person, a lady!

  2. I always thank a door-holder (male or female) and always hold doors for others. I never considered it something that requires actual thought… it’s just second nature to me.

    Actually, I often get yelled at by guys (both that I’ve dated and guy friends) for not waiting for them to open the door for me. Oops.
