You’re welcome, your majesty

Someone holding the door open for you is a nice thing to do. Say ‘thank you,’ you asshat.

In Vancouver than any other city anywhere.
How can you not acknowledge someone doing something nice for you?

doing something nice ...with expectations?

When you do something kind, you do something kind, not out of your own ego to get something in return...kindness isn't conditional; you do it because you are a good person and you would want someone to do the same. It doesn't mean being a doormat either.

nope

holding the door open for someone is what a DECENT person does. An asshat is the kind of douche that opens a door for someone and thinks they are owed something back. You didn't cure a disease or save a baby from a burning building. You OPENED A F*CKING DOOR.

No, YOU are welcome!

So I allow you to hold the door open for me, just so you can feel like a good person about yourself, and you want me to thank you for using me to emotionally gratify yourself on top of all that? How about you thank me instead, and remember that charity is it's own reward when you choose to use other people in such a manner in the future, hmm?

Are you serious?

I hold the door for people, I don't expect a thank you. What am I supposed to do, turn around and expect the person I have just helped out to bow deeply and commend me for my genteel manners and upbringing?

This is good example

About 20% of commenters disagree that common courtesy is important for society. That's possibly about the same percentage of actual inconsiderate people, which in my opinion is too high.

I don't do anything small like that just to be thanked

Who cares...? You're literally getting your panties in a bunch about people acknowledging your "good deeds"...? Lemme guess, you also complain about people who don't wave when you "graciously" let them in front of you in traffic.

Do those things because it's the nice thing to do, not because you want a medal for them. Because guess what? That's the WRONG reason to do those things.
