I’ve done my share of door holding. Frankly, I like holding doors. I love holding them when the other person is a little too far away. What do they do when they see me holding the door from about 20 yards out? They do the slow trot. They make it look like they are hurrying up because they don’t want to inconvenience me, but little do they know, they just made my day. I get a kick out of seeing who will hustle for the door and who will let me hold it for as long as possible. No need to hurry…I can wait here all day.
I do the same when someone holds the door for me. I swing my arms and make it look like I’m hurrying, but if you put a speed gun on me, you’d see that I’m moving at the same speed, if not slower.
