is it too much to ask that someone acknowledge when i extend a common courtesy?
when i hold a door open for the person behind me i want a quick "thanks!" i know i shouldn't expect it because i'm holding the door open to help someone out, not to hear their praise. but it is nice to have said person's recognition for an act of good citizenship.
yesterday, i let a man back out of his driveway. that's it and he must have waved at me seven times to show his appreciation. that's what i'm talking about.
