So if you are going through two sets of doors, like a vestibule or an entrance to a store that has two sets of doors...if someone holds the first set of doors for you and you say "Thank you" then as you follow them to the next set of doors and they do the same thing....do you/should you say thank you a second time as well.
I'm referring to more the scenario that the person went through the doors in front of you, but held them until you got to the door.
I always say "Thanks" and "Thanks again!" at the second door!
I think, for the most part, that people that hold doors for others do it out of politeness and not for any chauvinistic reasons so they don't expect or even require a thank you. However, politeness should be met with politeness so the first 'thank you' can be followed up with a smile and a nod of acknowledgement.
The second door was a favor as well, so a second thanks would be appropriate.
I give it the full "thank you" for the first door, and just thanks for the second. If I'm in a good mood I will say: "Hey, you're getting good at this. Mind if I follow you around?"
