    Your opinion please

    I just had an encounter while going into a convenience store to grab a drink and I want your opinion on it.

    As I'm walking to the door an elderly black man (early 70's I'd guess) is heading in too. He reaches the door a little before me so I skip a beat so he can enter first. He pulls the door open and holds it for me to walk in and says "I saw you coming". I appreciate the gesture so I say "thank you sir" and head into the store. As I'm going in he says "ohhh, you deserve it".

    End of our encounter. It seemed like an odd thing for him to say. What do y'all think about it?

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    A bit odd, for sure, but what is to be gained by being passive aggressive with somebody at a convenience store? Might have just been one of those times where a person says something without fully thinking the line through, blurts it out, and questions themselves the rest of the day.

    I sometimes engage the mouth before the brain is fully in gear. So frequently, stupid stuff comes out. I don’t mean any offense , it’s just that the thoughts are not fully formed before the words come. You said the gentleman was older. I find the older I get, the more frequent these things occur.

    You were there Sasquatch. Judge the tone and body language. He may have just been being nice.

    Maybe he assumes you are a working man and pay taxes and he is thanking you for supporting him?
    Or maybe he sensed that you are an example of white privilege?
    Or he was just being kind?
