    Wow I am going to have make a copy of this and carry it my pocket. It will come in handy next time a woman yells at me for holding a door open for her. Told me I was an antiquated sexist. Guess my mom got the teaching me it's the polite thing to do all wrong.

    Have you actually had this happen to you? And more than once? Geez, I cannot imagine what someone has to be thinking in order for courtesy to be offensive.

    Laeckcrov, yes on a couple of occasions. The antiquated sexist line was only used once, though.

    Those are great....good way to start the morning!

    Barbary, it's happened to plenty of us......although no woman has ever yelled at me about it. I just 'apply' extra accent to my exaggerated 'suthern charm' and get even politer and use extra good manners.


    That gets entertaining.

    If it weren't for alcohol we Irish could have ruled the world.

    In the last picture he's not holding her hand to be romantic. He's trying to counter balance the weight of the beer so she doesn't fall over.

    I have never been called a sexist when doing this, but I have had comments made about how they don't need me to open the door for them, etc.

    I love this pics, I showed my Wife once a while back when I first saw them and she thought they were hilarious.

    Fortunately I haven't been yelled at or had remarks made when I hold the door open for a woman, but I am an equal oportunity sexist and sometimes hold the door open for who ever is behind me as well. Being polite and having common courtesy was how I was raised, which is something that seems to be the exception and not the norm.

    +1 on getting yelled at for holding a door open, I just apologize for mistaking them for a lady.

    It happened to me last year. I guess I should have known better?? I didn't know exactly how to react to it, so I just shook my head and walked off. I was trying to be polite, not trying to offend her. Oh well.

    I agree with Mike, however it does irritate the hound out of me when I DO hold the door for someone and they do not acknowledge the courtesy with even a murmured "Thanks". When that happens I turn toward them as they are walking away and in a quite loud voice say, "YOU'RE WELCOME"! My wife just laughs cause she knows they didn't say thanks.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    ..so she doesn't fall over and brake the beer or hurt secondarily hurt herself so she couldn't bring a beer when necessary.
