On a first date with some girl. Met her at her building and held the door for her as we were leaving. She gave me a scowl and walked through the other set of doors. Long ass three hours till I could drop her back off.

I usually do good deeds without expectation of appreciation. Otherwise, they’re called jobs. Of course, it does suck when the recipient doesn’t have enough courtesy to say thanks. I’m also in the YOU'RE WELCOME. Crowd when the gal doesn’t say thanks (or even acknowledge) for me holding the door open for her. I really laugh when I hold the door open for folks, who were behind me, entering a restaurant, try to then Get a table before me.

You're funny. I had no problem with your original post in which you made your opinion/estimation of the women's sexual orientation very clear by such statements as "the husband of the two" "wishing she had a dik" or something to that effect. I was simply pointing out, sarcastically, that your second post was not at all needed to let the board know you thought the two were lesbians. I'm sorry you're so self-PC-conscious that you felt compelled to go back and edit your OP.

I changed it just to be a smart ass and get a response out of you! Mission accomplished. And BTW I could give 2 shits about being PC and I didn't make either one of the statements you listed above.

Twice I've done that only to have the person quickly tell me they said thank you... I just didn't hear them, sure as hell not the first time I didn't hear something. Now I just assume they said thanks.

Coming back to the ramp a couple of days ago and see a guy launching. I dock to go get my truck and trailer and hear guy on boat yelling to his buddy in the truck. Boat is in the water and buddy in truck is pulling away. I back my trailer down , but can’t go all the way as guy in boat is still on ramp, in boat across both lanes. I hop out and His GF tells me they can’t ‘steer’ boat. I say to guy on boat “do you need any help”, he literally just says Yes, in a tone of voice that sounded like he mean to say jack Ass. So I ignored it and said ok, what do you want to do, he again uses a tone of voice like before saying get it on the trailer of course. So I said pretty much word for word that I’m offering to helo you and your kinda being a jerk. He actually said he was, he was sorry and was stressed. They all thanked me when I left. I guess my point is that for some folks the fact they are getting or needing assistance is a stressful situation and I like to think that if someone forgets to thank me they are probably kicking themselves later for forgetting.
Then again there are a lot of self centered douches around as well. 😜

I agree with limey, I have helped people who were kinda jerky to me. I think they are stressed and embarrassed at the time.
Of course there was the time I came across a small outboard with the cover off the motor. I stop and ask does he need a tow. He says yes but could I come back in 2 hours so he could fish. I said "NO" and left. They were in no danger.

"Mandy" is a strong independent woman and doesn't need any help righting her boat. I know a five year old boy that feels the same way about most tasks.

If I hold a door open for someone and they do not say thank you I loudly say "Your Welcome".

Actually a number of times. Once I went out into Lake Travis (Austin,Texas) and a sudden wind capsized a sail boat out in the Lake about 1/2 mile from me. I pulled up to it. Three people were in the water with out lift vests. A girl had blown away from the boat and I went and got her. I went back and the guy was treading water and holding on to the mast. I got him out of the waterter, The last person was a girl. She was hanging onto a cooler and a rope I pulled her out of the water,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Never a thank you or a hellow or good buy...`
