Once upon a time (Oct 2002 to be precise), Brian and I took a trip to Chicago. We were JUST FRIENDS, Dad.
One of the ways Brian seemed too nice?
He held the door open for me – EVERYWHERE.
No one ever did that. All. The. Time.
He held the door – not just for me, but for my friend Elizabeth, too.
Call me crazy, why in the world did I not run after this amazing guy right then and there?!?!?!? I know. I know.
That trip and Brian’s nice manners have stuck with me after all these years. In a world where people rush and hurry and race to get ahead of everyone else, some people take time to hold the door and let others go first.
Brian is that kind of guy.
I want our kids to grow up doing the same thing.
Today’s Haigler Hospitality Habit:
Hold the door for others.
It’s simple. When you come to a door at the same time as others, grab the door, hold it open and let them go first.
OR – if you’re walking into a door and someone is following behind, stay an extra second or two and hold the door for them.
Join us? Let’s all be like my Brain and hold the door for others!
