Do We Only Hold Doors For People Because It Makes Us Feel Good?

Here’s me at PJ Media, pondering such important issues as holding doors for people:

I am one of those who always hold doors for other people. We door holders are a kind lot, but we are also (maybe) a bit sensitive. The other day, as I was leaving the post office, I stood outside the threshold for about three seconds longer than was necessary to hold the door for a middle-aged woman as she approached to enter. She walked through without even making eye contact, let alone saying “thank you.”
