MONDAY NIGHT OPEN THREAD

When you're entering or leaving a store and you hold the door for somebody -- you stop and are clearly holding the door, waiting for this person -- and the person breezes right past you (you are still holding the door) and does not say thank you or nod or even make eye contact, do you say anything?

This blog used to say "You're welcome!" in a perky voice, but we rarely got a response, just the occasional puzzled look. These days we just stand there, holding the door, and thinking to ourselves, quote: "Huh."

This is not necessarily a theme. It's just something we wanted to get off our chest.
