Take your chivalry and shove it.

I'm growing increasingly irritated at men who open and hold doors for me at my office building. Too often they hold the door when I'm still several yards out and not about to hurry up in high heels. Thanks for making it awkward, guy.

And then this morning, one rushed up behind me after I'd already let myself in the first set of doors, apologized overmuch for not getting them because they were heavy (uh . . . for a toddler, maybe?), and pushed in front of me to open the next set. Wtf? Your "chivalry" is misplaced, condescending, and irritating as fuck.

Hold doors for people irrespective of gender when it's convenient because it's polite.
