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 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?"

I think it's human nature to comment/complain when we see things go wrong while not necessarily stopping to say thank you all the days it goes right and I am certainly as guilty of this as anyone. So I'd like to stop and say thank you to all the writers who have really established a sense of...

Let me start by saying I'm a true Southerner, and most of us from old Southern families worship the etiquette deity. Have you heard the joke that explains why Southern women don't participate in group sex? Too many thank-you notes to write.I'm saying this so you'll hopefully understand where I'm...

After seeing Hubbers announce certain milestones such as view numbers, first $100 payouts and HubPages anniversaries I thought that it would be really cool to create a more automated and easily broadcast way to let other Hubbers know these milestones by sending them through the Hubtivity. I am...
