    Colin does have a point, though ;)

    Not that the truth is adequate protection against a whuppin’ :)

    Most of those huge guys are pretty stiff though - which means Collin could probably run faster if he had too - which is also very macho, um … right?! :)

    And a well-placed knee is a great equalizer.

    This is actually a pet peeve of mine as well, although I’ve learned how to let it go. It’s gotten to the point where I’m honestly surprised if someone
    a) holds the door for me
    b) thanks me for holding the door open
    c) offers an ‘After you!’
    It’s both sad and nice that such trivial encounters usually make my day.

    BUT! A word of warning. Do NOT try to be polite and hold the doors for people at an all girl’s middle school! D: Even the /teachers/ ignored me, leaving me holding the door for a solid five minutes as people flooded past without even realizing I was there. Then I’d be late for class and get in trouble. ;-___-

    Isn’t that depressing? Bah, the state of the world today… Well, at least you and I are polite, Puck! ;)

    (I know this reply is two years late but hey, archive trawl! I comments where I sees fit!)
    Yes, yes we are. Actually a few months back I held a door open for a guy and his girlfriend, and the guy looked at me like I’d grown an extra head: a mixture of fear, uncertainty, surprise, and utter confusion. It was somewhat priceless. I hope my smile adequately conveyed my message of “Yeah, I’m a young woman holding a door for you. No traps here. Seriously. Please go in ahead of me.”

    …. Although at his reaction it probably gained a hint of an evil tinge. I couldn’t help but enjoy his bewilderment! >;3 Like a deer in headlights. (He literally froze.)

    I like the idea that it could have been a trap. :)
