Here’s what happened recently to a philosophy blogger I occasionally read:
I was walking into a local corporate coffee shop and, being the kind of gentleman I am, I kindly held the door for the person who was walking out of the shop. The person did not say “thank you” as he walked out, so I let the door go; it hit him, and this caused him to drop the things he was carrying, including his cellphone, which broke into a few pieces. Enraged, he looked at me and said, “What the hell, dude?” I replied, “You didn’t thank me, so I inferred that I was not doing you a favor, and I let the door go.” Incredulous, he replied, “What?” I replied, “I’m not your doorman.”
In the main the comments are supportive. Did he do anything wrong?
