If I am walking out of a building through a lobby and someone holds open the 1st set of doors for me and I say thank you, do I have to say Thank You AGAIN if they hold open the 2nd set of doors? I never knew the proper etiquette for this.

Do you expect me to believe that you had someone actually open doors for you in Trenton NJ?? Please people, if you're going to submit questions for Misterkelley, I'd appreciate it if they had some basis in reality. Misterkelley's advice column won't remain legitimate for long if I keep getting questions like - Misterkelley, my FH thinks that my boobs are too big, doesn't like to play with them and wants me to get a breast reduction. What should I do? Or Misterkelley, how do I convince my DH that we really do need a 52" High Def TV with surround sound, and the premium NFL football package? But for the enlightenment of all the other women on here who live in places where a guy has a reasonable chance of holding 2 doors open for a woman, I offer the following:
Never under any circumstances say thank you for any door held open for you past the first one. There's a reason for this. You see, when a guy opens a door for a woman, he's looking at 3 things- the face, the tits and the left hand. Operating on the "Best 2 out of 3" rule, if it checks out positive, he'll deem that you are worthy of a second door opening and the posibility that you may receptive to one of his many stupid, opening lines - Like "It's always a pleasure to open a door for a beautiful woman" Oh brother!!!! give me an F'in break. A "Thank you" after the first door opening is customary and correct. But by not acknowledging the second, you are sending a clear, undisputable message that you know what he's really doing and that he's disgusting, pig.
Many a woman has fallen into the old thank you for opening the second door trick, and gotten stuck into actually having to converse further with some freak that thinks you might actually like him. Don't let this happen to you. Before you can ask yourself, what the hell just happened? you're Rewashing the dishes he "Allegedly" already washed, and wiping up 5 inches of water off the bathroom floor.
