Same here. Is there an age limit? It could differ from country to country or class to class.
Second line needed.

Is opening a door for people or even shaking hands a thing of the past?
I've always felt that there is nothing more impressive than a well behaved child these days.
As a Canadian, when I visited New Jersey and New York a few times pre 911 I was met with stares and outright hostility when holding the door open for someone, or moving out of the way so they could get past me.

I am in agreement with your main message here, but I am in disagreement in regards to the word "ma'am." I do not like being called 'sir.' Often, when that term is used, it is done so with sarcastic undertones.
