Etiquette says,

When you open a door for a lady (or anyone, for that matter!) and she says, “Thank you,”  you respond with something along the lines of:

“You’re welcome.”

The response I got today after a young man opened a door for me and my mom was,

“Someone told me to.  Don’t be flattered.”

I waited until we were an appropriate distance away from him to look at my mom and laugh.  She heard it clearly too, and we both got quite a laugh out of it.  Don’t worry- I wasn’t flattered. 😛

  1. “Jonathan says”

    Hopefully his mom or dad was teaching him how to honor ladies, and he just has a little more to learn.
