Yesterday I was entering a store while a lady was exiting. I opened the door on the right and began to enter as she took a step through the same door I had opened. I politely said to her “enter to your right, exit to your right” and she had no idea what I was referring and gave me the stink eye. I guess she thought I was holding the door for her, which I would have done gladly had I been exiting with her.
My observation has to do with her getting upset at me and why she got upset. Was it that I pointed out to her that she was exiting the store through the enter door? Was it that she thought I was being a smarty pants? I’m not sure, but she decided to exit through the wrong door and made myself and the 5 people behind me wait as she did so. I wonder how someone can see the exit door is clearly free to be used, yet still want to exit through the enter door while many people are entering? Oh, I failed to mention that her hands were not full nor was she pushing a cart.
Apparently everyone isn’t aware of the “rules” of traffic flow.
