I believe if bbeljefe doesn't rein it in a little, he may have to have some serious attendance in the naughty chair! Sleepy

Common courtesy is about as common as common sense!!! Undecided

Damn, how quickly thread get derailed around here. Tongue

I try to always be of help weather I'm at work or at the store. Friend or stranger. Because I never know when I'm gonna be the one that needs the help.

RE: Common Courtesy not so common?
I was just talking about something like this with a few guys from work. It was after I held the door open for one of them. He gave me a strange look. Dodgy

"I'm just holding the door for you, dude!"

"...Thanks..."

"UGH! You know, this one time on campus, I held the door for some big buy who was walking through right behind me. He almost REFUSED to "accept" that I hold the door for him?! It was like this back and forth battle of who was going to hold the door for whom. What IS that? 'I'm just being nice and it's cold AND why NOT?' The guy responded, 'But I'm a guy.' I continued to stare and then stated, 'You're welcome...' Is it really that big a deal that a girl hold the door for a guy?"

My fellow coworkers just hunched their shoulders.

I'm always going on about this: Why a girl can allow a guy to go in the door first if she was there first anyway. It makes no sense to me that a man would feel awkward about this gesture Drinking Beverage

If I see a reflection or otherwise sense anyone behind me I always open the door, get out of the way and hold it for them and anyone behind them, regardless of gender. It's just common courtesy. Haven't seen many women do the same, but they do regularly hold open the door for me to keep it from ungraciously closing in my face after entering first. Think it might be a little culturally awkward if they actually opened it, got out of the way and let me enter first. I'd appreciate it and say "Thankyou very much." but see how it could be awkward. Kinda like me and the Asian guy I work with when we're trying to get off the elevator on the same floor. "After you, Bob." "No after you, Sam." "No no, please after you, Bob." And then the goddam elevator door closes.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
