This had happened. Not just recently, but also frequently too.
It would be nice if people just say “thanks” when you hold the door. You know , I have low expectations so just SMILE as a response would suffice for me. Instead, they presumed the worse of you, a total stranger who they had never seen before. I even gotten weird looks from people. Making faces is not a viable reply. Holding the door is NOT a romantic approach. However, I’m old fashioned so I might’ve missed some modern mating trends.
I could only tell you how I wished I had applied the 2nd and 3rd responses more often in my daily life. Alas, I’m not a rotten person. Not to strangers at least. Haha! Stay tuned for next week!
