Arrive at the gym.
Big guy I think might be a jackass holds the door for his girlfriend and then insists on waiting and holding the door for me, too.
I say “Thank you.”
“You’re very welcome.” he answers like he means it and then smiles.
Kind of made me like the guy.
Look who the jackass is for judging.
From the comments:
Christi: I was leaving the convenience store recently when a very large black gentleman was coming across the parking lot toward the store. He was wearing the typical “gangster” looking attire and had a rather menacing appearance.
I held the door open for him as he slowly walked across the parking lot and when he got closer and realized I was holding the door for him he started doing that fast walk/jog thing and thanked me very sincerely.
He walked in then stopped in his tracks shook his head looked back at me with a puzzled look on his face and said “thank you so very much…thank you, thank you.” May have had to have been there but it was actually a very moving moment.
Zero: Thank YOU for doing that. And thank you for sharing.
