That's what I get for being polite. So I'm holding the door open for an elderly lady at the Post Office, just like my parents taught me. That part was fine. But then a ton of people kept coming in right behind her. By the time I finally got to actually go in to the Post Office, the line was nearly to the door. Empty when I got there but full when I finally got to go in. Chivalry cost me an extra 20 minutes in line. I guess that isn't that long in the whole grand scheme of things. But please. I'm trying to be nice to an old lady, but a bunch of young people took advantage. Think I'll just block everyone else after the old lady goes in. I'm only looking to do one good deed a day, not ten in a row.
