I can wait a moment to hold the door open for you.

This morning I rolled out of bed around 10:00 am, made a coffee, drank it, did one hundred push-ups, and checked my emails. Afterward, I put some clothes on and went downstairs to buy a pack of cigarettes. When I got to the front entrance door, I heard some people get off one of the elevators. I turned back to take a quick look before I continued on my way.

There were two women around the same age, one walking in front and another following ten steps behind. The woman walking in front had long wavy hair all the down to the middle of her back. She had a slim figure, and she was wearing high heels. Her nails were done, she wore a nice red lipstick and not too much makeup. She was dressed in an elegant way that didn’t reveal too much. The expression on her face was pleasant and welcoming.   

The woman following behind had an unpleasant expression on her face. She was a frumpy looking woman with very short hair. Her body had the shape of a Coca-Cola can, and large colorful tattoos were visible on her arms.

After quickly assessing the women behind me, I naturally decided to wait and hold the door open for the first woman. She politely smiled and thanked me. I then proceeded to walk to the supermarket next door to buy cigarettes. As I approached the supermarket, I saw the entrance door crash in the second woman’s face.

I want to end this post by saying that I didn’t do that on purpose. It was a natural behavior, and I didn’t think too much about it until after it happened. I saw that the woman walking in front possessed a high polarity of femininity. Therefore I instinctively decided to wait and hold the door open for her. The woman walking behind didn’t possess even 1% of elegance. Consequently, I didn’t have one extra second to hold the door open for her.

今天早上10点钟左右,我从床上爬起来,冲了杯咖啡喝,做了100个俯卧撑,然后又查看了邮件。之后我穿好衣服准备下楼去买包烟,当我走到门口时,我听到有人走出电梯,于是我回头看了一眼。

那是两个年龄相仿的女人,一个在前,一个十步开外跟在后面。前面的那个女人留着长长的卷发,一直垂到后腰。并且身材苗条,踩着高跟鞋,还做了指甲,涂着漂亮的口红,妆容正好没有太过浓艳。衣着打扮也很优雅,没有暴露太多,脸上挂着愉悦轻松的表情。

跟在后面的那个女人看起来就没那么高兴了,一副苦瓜脸搭上超短的头发。身材看起来像个可口可乐瓶子,胳膊上还有一大片彩色显眼的纹身。

在迅速的打量过后,我自然的站在那里并为前面的女士打开大门等着她过来。她礼貌的微笑感谢我,然后我就走到旁边的超市去买烟了。正当我走到超市,我看到大门拍在了第二位女士的脸上。

我想说我不是无意做这件事的,这只是个下意识的反应,在它发生后我也并没有想太多。我欣赏前面的女人那种优雅的女性气质,所以我才本能地等在那里为她开门。而后面的那位截然不同,因此我也没有必要浪费多余的1秒钟再为她HOLD THE DOOR。
