It's Good Manners.

I don't understand why anyone would be offended by politeness.  I hold the door open for others, men and women alike, and I appreciate it in return.

Chivalry is not dead!

I say let 'em look! They're hard-wired to do so anyway!

I can't imagine anyone being offended by courtesy -- and I'm round, fiftyish & greying, so if they're contemplating my backside, they probably need their eyesight checked... :-)

Good Knight.

I agree angeleyes.

I don't care what he is thinking as long as he is polite.

I think the only people that I don't see doing it are teens and early 20s. Too focussed on what's happening to them to be aware that they've just slammed the door shut in someone's face. I don't know how many times I've seen it and it still leaves me picking my jaw up off the ground.<br />

If they do it to me, that's one thing, but when they do it to an elderly person or a pregnant lady, it's just the sort of thing that would've driven my father into a frenzy. Small wonder that he died at 61.
