oh come on, little fart here and there never harmed anyone..
i don't like your attitude! lol
What a rediculous benign thread. Honestly folks give it upto a higher power or soemthing.
bravo indeed, what a contribution you made! i feel like i wasted precious seconds of my life just reading your excuse of a post.
But Poles seem to expect it as a matter of course?
it's a very common thing in Poland to hold doors for women, it's not so much that we expect it, it's always been that way and it's the norm. suppose we should understand that not all nations are as courteous, even if Poles do it mechanically, not to be polite ;). i often hold doors for other women or kids, if i try to hold doors for a bloke though then in most cases they will thank me and let me get through first anyway :).
I have regularly held doors open to let people out, or stepped aside as a courtesy ...
i find they always say thank you, and i make sure i say thank you if they do it for me
