Ok, this is meant to be a light post so I hope it does not get into heated arguments. I am just hoping people can share their opinions and everyone's opinion gets respected
When I first left home to go to school, I noticed a lot of men held doors open for women. I don't know if it is because they were older than high school kids so they did it or if I just never noticed before. I remember feeling really akward about it all. Admitedly, there was probably some self esteem issues along with just the newnest of it all.
But as the years went by, I got use to saying 'thank you' and going in first. Also, I think that I am of the opinion, men like to feel needed so to refuse an opening of a door could be seen as offensive to a man.
Well, I often will notice at work, when there are not enough chairs to go around, men will offer their chair to women. And a lot of women will refuse and insist on standing. So be it to each their own. Well, I am the type, when a man offers me a chair, I will immediately sit in it to avoid the man insisting because basically, I am sure everyone else is thinking 'Please somebody just sit in the chair so we can get to business'. But lately, I am wondering if I am not coming accross as a snob for immediately saying 'Thank you' and sitting in the chair.
How do other's feel/handle these situations. Please keep in mind this is a light post
