Trendspotting - Doorman at retail store in Southampton

I was exiting Lynch's last weekend and I saw some folks following me out so I held the door. There was one woman with a small child making her way. She and child stopped on the threshold of the doorway, she proceeded to put a hat on her
child's head, then walk out the door.

All the while I am holding the door, see...I got no thank you or any acknowledgment for this deed whatsoever.

Thought for sure I'd get at least a thank you out of her for making me wait.

- B


  1. Get a life. She probably could have managed the door herself. Is this the best you can do on Christmas Day!! Get over it!

  2. lol.. Im with Wave.. I hold the door for people every day at least 5x a day.. maybe 1 out of 5 will say thanks.. I don't open doors just to hear a thanks...

  3. do what i do. when i hold the door for someone and they don't say thank you, i yell you're welcome loud enough for the person to hear. they usually turn and give a... oh, uh thanks, like they forgot they should be polite.
