I expect at least a smile or a nod!
I'm not sure if I really expect a "thank you" as nice as it may be for the recognition. I just think that so many people now-a-days lack common courtesy!
For example: I had to go to Legal one day to get something notarized. I'm walking with my 2y/o in the building. A guy passed me up and went in the door first. Not only did he not hold the (heavy) door for me, when I was 2 steps behind him, he also let it almost slam and I barely caught as my kiddo was going through..I just thought that was incredibly rude.
I ALWAYS hold the door for someone, especially if I don't see them. If someone walks in almost directly behind me and I honestly didn't notice them, I always find myself apologizing for not holding the door.
I know that's only one example. But I guess I just wish people had more courtesy for others, in public, in general!!
I usually expect some form of acknowledgement.
I dont expect a thank you, but if you bump into me anywhere, and I MEAN ANYWHERE... i expect an excuse me or im sorry. But common courtesy isnt all that COMMON! :D
It would be nice to be acknowledged.
Quoting 4ever-SJ:Well, I ran ahead to open a door for a girl carrying her son. She didn't even look at me, let alone say thanks.
yeah...that's just rude!! I always say Thank you!!
