A few weeks ago, a couple of my friends and I were hanging out in front of the Water World entrance, when a group of elderly women began walking towards the doors. My friends and I happened to be in the way of the door and blocking their access.

He showed me this because he did the right thing by correcting us and telling us to accommodate the elderly women’s needs of moving out of their way and holding the doors for them.
