Today is Thursday, September 24, 2015, 11:10am Puerto Rican time. I saw a few minutes ago a female entering Starbucks. A Starbucks merchandise delivery employee was waiting for the female to enter for him to leave. This female entered Starbucks and did not hold the door open for the employee. The employee remained silent, as did I. I wouldn’t be surprised, though, if he thought that the female just reacted as a douche. I did.
The guy has to open and close the door at least 10 times… per store… half of those times he has merchandise on his cart. Make his day easier: hold the door open. It will only take 3 seconds of your day. The guy will thank you and you will get a Dopamine hormone synapse making you feel good about helping the guy. Everyone wins. But she just had to not hold the door open for him.
Apparently holding doors open for someone is something that is not explicitly taught to them. It should. It’s common courtesy. It’s an indicator that one is not THAT selfish. It makes sense physically speaking because less biological energy is exerted overall to carry out a task.
It’s something small, but not holding a door open for a stranger indicates to me that the person, male or female, is a sucky person.
