Ok - this one has been bugging me for a while, because depending on the person you are with, you can get completely different answers. Simple question: When do you hold open a door for someone? There seems to be one group of people that will happily stand by the door and wait until I open it, and another group who are insistent that they do not need the door being held open for them at all, even if they have an armful of paperwork and are juggling three cups of tea, but they will kindly manage thank you very much. Now, I will hold open doors or go through them first depending on what's easiest and seems polite and generally try to ignore it, but I was wondering if there was any actual guidance on what is the correct thing to do. Failing that, any other suggestions would be useful.
