I had this incident, in Little India- saw this family nearing the door. seeing the mother and daughter, I held the door open, and just behind them comes the father and son, acting like I am the door man ..
I just let go of the door, and it slammed into the father straight .. and he gave me an ugly look .. and I was "what ? " and walked away, wondering what kind of lesson the father is teaching the son, when he doesn't encourage the son to go and hold the door from a stranger who held it for the mother/sister ..
And it got even bad .. when i was in office I mentioned this to my Indian colleagues, and they were like "Who the hell asked you to hold the door" ???
Lesson learnt .. though for me, now it is, don't bother if the people nearing the door avoid eye contact .. just let it slam on their face ..
