I've always let the women go first, and the elderly. But I do see your point. I've heard a woman bitching about a guy holding the door for her and saying he must do it because he thinks she's too weak to do it on her own. That's the type of person I wouldn't mind letting the door slam on, but being too much of a gentleman, I'd still probably hold the door if placed in that situation, or laugh it off, say ok then, and walk inside.
That's probably the best attitude to have for your own peace of mind, so good for you!
I've heard such critters exist but never had the misfortune to encounter one! These days anyone can turn a courtesy into a microaggression... and good deeds have never gone unpunished anyway, so not much to do about it. Except not let them get to us! I tend to find the ones who rush and/or push thru without a "thanks" or even looking your way (often because their eyes are on their phone). Ugh. All this connectivity sure has made some rude to the folks all around them, eh?

I think it was the no exchange of words.......
What's wrong with saying 'excuse me'?
