She missed an excellent teaching moment for her child. Someday Junior isn't going to hold the door open for her and her walker except on the day he enrolls her in the Last Stop Before the Styx Nursing Home.

Jesus. As a native New Englander, I thought the Dance To Hold The Door For Strangers At Dunkin' Donuts Regardless Of How It Affects Traffic Flow Through The Doors was as ingrained as hating the Yankees. Maybe she ain't from these parts...

I was in the process of thinking uncharitable thoughts about the mother, and then decided to give her the benefit of the doubt. Who knows what was going on with her?

I think I'm older than you, but in my mind I'm pretty much your age. Still, I have embraced my old-man status, at least to the point of sometimes letting people do things for me. If I made it this far (and may not make it that much further), I'll let those younger people to a few little things for me. A freight delivery guy I would normally have thought of as older than me (you know, someone maybe in his 40's) offered to take out a heavy item he was delivering and put it in my trailer. I lent a few ounces of force, but basically let him do it. I guess that's what a white goatee does for you.
